I’ve decided to ignore Tealux’s recommended steeping parameters. They seem to suggest the same thing for every white, every green, etc. For instance they recommend 1-2 tsp for 2-4 min at 90C for this tea. That’s a wide range. I do not like astringent teas, so I decided to steep it with 1 tsp for 200 ml of water for 2 min at 75C. It worked ok.

I wish I had a better sensory vocabulary to describe the nuances of teas. Or maybe I just need better tastebuds. This tastes like water with a delicate vegetal flavour to me. Very drinkable, but not knock your socks off amazing.

Bio

I’m a vegan, board-game playing, avid reader who likes to run and/or lift weights depending on my mood (and current injuries).

I’m fairly new to tea, but my collection seems to be growing at an exponential rate. Herbals, greens, whites, and now oolongs are my teas of choice at the moment. I haven’t developed a taste for black yet (if it’s something you can develop a taste for).
