I came home to visit my folks for spring break and went to make some tea. Unfortunately most of them are stale and ick and I just had to get rid of them. I hate throwing away tea, even if it is no longer any good. Fortunately this one is still good, but I only have three bags left. This is a nice light white tea with mellow melon and peach flavoring. No one note over powers any of the others, everything is nicely balanced. I left it steep a little longer than I usually do and it became slightly astringent this time, but overall this is a decent flavored white tea.

Preparation

Bio

I’m an avid tea drinker, it’s what I drink all day and why I’m here. I don’t sweeten my teas except for the occasional iced tea or cold-brewed tea. I typically brew my teas with a brew basket in a 12 oz cup. If I brew another way I will always note it.

Dislikes: black teas, milk flavored oolongs, hibiscus, red rooibos, licorice, dessert teas, mate, guayusa.

Loves: straight teas, especially Chinese green teas, sencha, jasmine, dan congs, mint, coconut.

My ratings are based mostly on the smiley faces. If a tea is of good quality but not to my taste preference I try not to rate it because I think that is unfair.

I drink a lot of the same teas and will not record every time I drink them. I log them the first time I try them and then again if I did something different and/or got different results.

I also try to keep my cupboard updated to what I actually have for those that wish to swap, although some of them are merely samples.
