I bought 50g of this today on impulse, even though I sorta promised myself to stop doing that in case I end up with more duds. I was shopping with sgoertz and I got caught up in all the excitement about all the new teas. (My original plan was to buy a shiny red tin full of Red Velvet Cake, which I did… but then I bought this and a sample of Pink Flamingo too! Guess I better stay away for at least a few weeks).

But today is not that day where I regret my impulse purchases. This is SO GOOD, and is totally worth the price DT charges for white teas. It smells like fresh baked goods coming out of the oven. It tastes…. mmmm…. it tastes like butter and chocolate and sugar wrapped up in warm caramel and melt in your mouth goodness. It leaves a bit of an odd aftertaste on your tongue – but it’s not unpleasant.

When I looked at the dry tea, I noticed there were a few walnuts in there. I mashed them up into little bits because I wanted the walnuts to be mixed more thoroughly in the blend. The leaves are pretty – all sorts of sizes and shapes! This is the second time I’ve had white tea (the first being Persian Apple) and I’ve been satisfied. Both blends have been heavily mixed with other things though, so I can’t say that I really know what a white tea tastes like.

I plan to re-steep this one over and over – at $10/50g I’m going to need to make this last!

SIDE NOTE: For those of you who shop at DavidsTea all the time, have you bought many of those $3 sample bags? The lady said that those are actually cheaper to buy than if we buy it from the shelf. Maybe it’s old stock? I grabbed the Pink Flamingo from there and I’m looking forward to trying it – 25g is perfect for sampling. I’ll have to keep an eye on how often they add teas to that section.

I HATE pink flamingo but A LOT of people love it so I hope it gives you a positive experience!

I LOVE that section..but I’ve tried most of the teas they put there unfortunately.

:) I know a lot of people really hate hibiscus but I could always use a few more herbal blends and this sounded ok. Guess we’ll see!

And I imagine that someday I’ll be at that point where I’ve tried them all, but I’ve only really been buying teas since July – I’ve got so much to explore still!

Whaaaa, $3 sample bags? I saw the sample bags but assumed they were regular price…. darn it. As if I really need MORE tea though (and I have undoubtedly tried them all anyhow).

I’ve bought a few of those sample bags in the past. My DT usually has them on for $3 for one or $5 for two. The ones I’ve seen/bought are usually from the previous collection. So now that the Winter collection is out, most of the choices that were at my DT were from the Fall collection. They usually are cheaper to buy this way, especially with the “two for” deal.

Cavocorax

Oh that’s fantastic! Sounds like a great way to go back and collect teas that sounded good but you never got a chance to try…

Bio

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a baby girl and a devoted bf, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

Ratings:
1-50: Bleh.
51-64: It’s ok.
65-75: It’s good.
76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
86-100: Amazing. (ALWAYS re-stock)
