My father-in-law heard me talking about my love for white tea, so while he was out food shopping, he brought back a box of this (can you tell my in-laws are awesome yet?!). I had it unsweetened as I had it during dinner (I feel it’s a waste to add sweetener when I’m eating something mildly sweet since you can’t really taste the sweetness that way – my sandwich had a juicy tomato on it)! I only steeped for just under 2 minutes and I waited till my water had cooled down to 175.

It’s mild, very smooth and with very little astringency. Pretty nice, but I’ve gotten awfully spoiled by the loose white teas in my collection. There’s just something about them! Not too bad though for tea on the fly.

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 1 min, 45 sec

Bio

I recently discovered loose leaf tea and am already addicted (much to my husband’s dismay)! I prefer fruity teas iced and savory teas hot. Looking forward to drinking and chatting.

Some likes/dislikes I’ve been noticing:

Likes:
Pineapple
Jasmine
Fruity White Teas
Assam Black
Most Oolongs (especially greener varieties)

Dislikes:
Spicy flavors unless in chai
astringent black teas

For my own reference, I’m only placing “full size” teas in my cupboard.
