Advice recs. on new white teas to try
So I am really low on white teas and would like to know what different people think are really good ones that are hopefully not too expensive.
Things I don’t like melon,really spicy ,blackberries,heavy hibiscus,black currants,coconut,cherry,plum,perfumey teas with too much flowers,
Precious White Peach from Teavana is a really good one I think…
Honey Vanilla and Silver Needle whites from LeafSpa. It’s great when you want a flavored white or an unflavored white- for a dessert tea, or a non dessert tea. All of Adagio’s whites I’ve found to be very good so I suggest getting both their unflavored and flavored samplers. I have not tried any of them yet- but you should hit up Upton Tea Imports for their samples. At that price you can’t go wrong:)
I just did it hot brewed in just enough water to cover the leaves then added cold water- but yeah it is awesome.
Thanks everyone so for for the recs and taking the time I will keep them in mind.
honeydew from teas etc
i don’t see adagio’s silver needle among your tea ratings. i love that one…
I know you don’t like overly floral teas, but their Jasmine Silver Needle is good. I suggest 1 min @ 160 degrees instead of the 7 @ 180 that they suggest. That should give you a cuppa more favorable to your tastes. You could also blend it w/ a plain Silver Needle.
Check this out! It’s the top rated WHITE ONLY ones on Steepster…
I really like this…and…you know I’m not overly fond of Jasmine…so…there isn’t much in this imho
I really like the champagne infused ones Compass offers, too…
Thanks everyone as for adagio well I use paypal or money orders and they do not accept those so I would have to get theirs from a friend or a swap. Thanks so much for the ideas.
