180 degrees for 4 minutes. Too light for my tastes. Might try a longer steeping.

I liked it ok, but wasn’t my favorite. I didn’t think light was a bad thing. Esp when eating it with dinner.

Having a fresh 20 oz pot with a pinch of Lapsang Souchong added.

This is the fourth steep of this pot. I added 6 or seven leaves of Lapsang Souchong and was was very pleasantly surprised. I think that Russian Caravan tea will be making it’s way into my EBT in the future.

Pretty good taste, no complaints. One of my favorite black teas so far.

Oh, my, I like this tea.

The smell, as well as the taste, remind me of the scent of hay in the barn. A little like dried grasses, with an earthy dimension as well. Very little acidity, very smooth, soothing flavor and scent.

Boiling 5 min, 15 sec

Just had this yesterday and Assam today and it looks like our reviews are similar. We both think Assam taste better. =D

Cynthia Carter

Assam is great – I really enjoy the Indian teas best. But, when I said this tea reminded me of hay? I meant that in the best possible way. Sweet, fresh, and somehow home-y smelling. Definitely worth keeping around.

Rich, smooth tea with less acidity. The leaves smell rather earthy, almost musty before brewing, but none of that mustiness comes through in the brewing. Really delicious.

Drinking this right now cause I have a sore throat that is keeping me awake. I have always loved this tea as a night time tea though. Not as much actual tea in it but a few herbals to dim it out. There is not enough caffine in this to actually affect me so its nice at night. Flavor wise its nice. A very clean taste to it. I tend to brew it kinda long since its mostly herbal if I don’t brew it a while it tends to taste a little weaker than I like.

Used a little more leaf than usual this time around.

Though I think I’ll always prefer the old style Silver Needle, the slightly fuller tasting Bai Mu Dan is definitely a good every day go-to white tea. The light floral hints are nice accents without being at all overwhelming.

I don’t like the new style whites as much as the traditional silver needle, but it’s still mighty fine (how’s that for proper tea tasting language).

After having been focusing on Japanese greens and various oolongs for a while, I decided to go back to an old favorite. I was going to have some Silver Needle, but was nearly out, so I opted for the new style white bai mu dan. Flavorful and smooth as expected and just what I was looking for on a Sunday night.

I’m home alone a lot and silence creeps me out so I have the tv on just for noise. There isn’t much on in the afternoon so I normally have Full House reruns on. Today the “yummy in the tummy” episode was on so I wanted to have something that was yummy in MY tummy. Now all of my teas qualify as that, but I wanted something special. Chais and most of my dessert teas are out cuz of my over doing it this morning, but I thought this’d be perfect. The green tea and the mint balance perfectly w/ the chocolate making it not too sweet, almost a sweet/savory balance.

I’ve been thinking though the issue of chocolate and tea for years without doing much about it. Though I’ve made chocolate chai’s before with black teas, I was given some fine chocolate with green tea (as a bar) and I liked the combo.
The problem is mixing greens and milk.
But I’m thinking of making a tea with cocoa, lavender and gunpowder. What do you think?

Cofftea

What do you mean the problem is mixing greens and milk? That wouldn’t be my cuppa because I don’t like lavender, although I love chocolate and rose.

Ricky

I’ve mixed green tea and milk before. Down in the tummy it goes =]

Cofftea

shudders lol just not my cuppa. I can’t even add milk to kashmiri chai.
