I’ve been feeling gross lately, and I went for the white tea sampler :)

It smells silver needle…ish. I almost wish they were a little more specific with what type of “white tea” it is. hmmm not bad. I think i might have steeped it too long. The color came out pretty dark, and it has a slightly bitter flavor to it. I’m getting some of the chrysanthemum flavor, which i’m not a huge fan of. This is a good cup, but I’ve drank so many better white teas before.

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

Do you have any matcha? I stir a TB into 16oz of hot water (the heck w/ my chawan, I tak this chance to use a 16oz mug that’s special to me). A couple mornings of that (on top of my regular matcha OJ) and I’m pretty good. You may want to try fermented teas like Pu Erh and Kombucha as well.

Hmmm, i do have 52tesa strawberry matcha. I haven’t tried it yet, and i even got a matcha set recently as a gift hahah! Somehow drinking green tea when I feel gross never occured to me, usually oolong and white teas are my go-to. Thanks!

Matcha is very detoxifying to me (maybe due to the high mineral content?) I even call that ratio “detox matcha” lol! Wow how do I get to know this person and get in their gift giving list, they give great gifts! Tea is one thing, but matcha… tell him or her I’m impressed- do they drink it themselves?

Kathryn Ann

Nah, but they know i really love tea (and anything japanese)… and got it for me as a really late bday present :)

One of the 7th graders at my church and her friends are all into Japanese culture so I’m taking her out for matcha for her birthday. Who says 13 year olds aren’t cool? :)

Profile

Bio

Daily tea drinker.

Whether it’s hot or cold outside, there is a cup of tea in my hands. I love all teas, but white and oolong are my favorites. I tend to find one tea and drink it every day until I run out (or get sick of it).

There’s not much variety in what I drink, so tasting notes are few and far inbetween. I try to log every tea I drink at least once… and if I spend to much time perusing the many teas all you lovely people drink I would surely go broke trying to drink them all.
