Loving white tea right now
I tried one a short while back that I didn’t find great (seemed too weak/subtle for me) but it made me curious about white teas.
My spouse bought me a sample of each of those offered at Imperial Tea Garden and I’ve been working my way through them.
So far some are okay/good and some, one especially, has been awesome.
I tend to go for heavier teas but these have so grabbed my interest and tastebuds! Am sipping the Pai Mu Tan from there and, while it’s not a favorite of the group, it’s quite tasty.
I’m surprised at the range of flavors and strengths I’ve been getting in white tea, after that first introduction that wasn’t much. Wow!
We have one pure white in our collection and it has yet to be sampled. Other than that, I’ve only had flavoured whites (which I enjoyed, but not enough for the cost). I also don’t steep them at the recommended lengths yet, which should be a factor. Glad to hear you’re enjoying them, though!
