drank Assam White by Canton Tea Co
1736 tasting notes

I’m way too chintzy with my leaves and never willingly put enough in the cup when I’m steeping a white tea. (Then pule and whinge about how weak it tastes.) Full moon? Christmas liberality? Whatever it was, I actually spooned in a full two teaspoonsful as recommended…

…and it tastes the way it’s supposed to taste! This is a sweet, smooth, honey-colored white tea that takes heat and a long steep quite well. First taste sensation that registered was the yummy unsweet burnt-toasted-marshmallow-crust you get over a campfire. As it cools, there’s more of a honey-caramel vibe. Handmade caramels.

And, so the label tells me, there are several good steeps ahead.

Lesson learned. If they say two, they mean two.

Following directions… what a novel idea. Maybe I’ll try it sometime.

I find white tea to be one of those that are hard to measure. Usually I measure what I think is right then add more.

Oh, wow…second steep report. Even caramellier.

I’ve never heard the word chintzy used as stingy, haha.

Bio

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
