Just right – and yet so hard to describe!

This tea uses its indoor voice. It has the soft, delicate flavor that a quality silver needle should. The flavor is strong enough to stand on its own yet not over-done for a white tea. It makes a great cup by itself and serves as a wonderful foundation for blending.

It’s easy to get and not terribly expensive – give it a try!

Bio

I’ve recently discovered the world of loose leaf teas and, more importantly, careful brewing. Wow, what a difference! I liked tea when I was steeping bags of it in whatever came out of the red spigot on the office water cooler but I love, love, love it now.

I heat water in my beloved Cuisinart PerfectTemp kettle and brew right in the cup. Never any sweeteners and very, very rarely any milk.

When not drinking tea, I’ve been known to teach gemology, knit, jump onto airplanes and trains at a moment’s notice, watch sumo, make jewelry, read the first halves of many books, dine finely, sing in the car, design webpages, belly dance, learn about stuff, and try anything I haven’t tried before. If you’re a Myers-Briggs buff, you probably know by now that I’m an ENTP.
