I think TeaEqualsBliss sent me this. Thank you :)
I like this one. Its not “mind blowing” but then I rarely have had a white tea blow my mind.
Its lovely though!
A full review will be on http://sororiteasisters.com/ on Feb 8th but here are a couple snippits:
2009 Shou Mei from Life in Teacup is a light, juicy, white tea that has a lovely buttered vegetal after taste and an almost earthy note in the sip.
There is also a light and lovely toasted marshmallow flavor that just touches your taste buds gently on the initial sip but does not stick around long.
This is a very forgiving tea! My first steep I spaced out preparing to write this review and over steeped it by far too much. I was certain I was going to have to dump the cup, but alas it tasted lovely!
I love the look of the dry leaf! Its so wild and natural looking! It appears as if someone scooped up fallen leaves from the forest floor!
