The first time I drank this, I followed the instructions to the letter (4-5 minute steep time at 175). I found it a bit bitter at that time, so today I reduced the steep time to 3 minutes, and it is perfect! Much smoother and fuller in flavor. There is a hint of earthiness to it. This is the first straight white tea that I have tried. I look forward to trying more!

I am a bit disappointed that re-steeping didn’t really work out for me. I steeped exactly the same way a second time (same temp, same time), and this time the tea did come out quite bitter. I guess I’ll have to experiment with the re-steep…
