drank White Peony by Deet's Place

So this is from the coffee shop on campus at Virginia Tech. I grabbed a couple ounces of a few teas there before I graduated. I have no idea who the supplier is, and of course the e-mail on the website doesn’t work. Oh well.

Followed Teavivre’s instructions since this came with none, worked out pretty well. 195 degrees, 3 infusions at 1 minute, 2, and then 3 minutes.

This may have been my first loose white tea. It’s super super tasty! Very smooth and light. Not sure I get a whole lot of the floral taste that’s supposed to be here. I’d have to compare it with some other white teas. Even shared some with my future mother-in-law who enjoyed it as well.

Any favorite white tea recommendations would be great!

Your request for recommendations got me thinking… I’m not sure I’ve really tried any straight white teas! Shame on me! So I’ll have to do that soon!

I lost track of the steeping time for this, but that’s why I love easy herbals for bed. I don’t have to worry about it!

So this is a combo of peppermint, lemongrass, and chamomile. These all seem to mingle nicely when I smell the tea, but not when I taste it. Heavy on the chamomile maybe, the peppermint does come in for a little refreshing zing.

Not sure I’d re-buy, I have other sleepy time teas I prefer like Foxtrot.

Cold brewed this time overnight and then a bit more. This tea is so pretty (I know I said that last time too). http://www.flickr.com/photos/8126244@N06/7594323786

I’m getting some different flavors of this iced, something under the fruit. It may be the green rooibos but I haven’t had that plain so I’m not sure. The cold brewing seemed to mellow out the peach flavor which was all I could taste when I had it hot. Delicious and refreshing, may order some more to keep on hand for iced tea.

Iced 8 min or more

drank Birthday Cake by DAVIDsTEA

Yum yum. I’ve had this both iced and hot and it’s delicious either way. I don’t know what else to say about it other than that it’s like a creamy vanilla cake with hints of fruitiness. Oh, and of course the sprinkles, love, love, love the sprinkles. :)

I also ordered some of this for my mom for her birthday, couldn’t resist.

drank Hunan Gold by Adagio Teas

This is my first yellow tea and I really like it!
Smells like a black tea and has a lovely golden liquor.

Very light, dry, and super smooth, also a bit fruity. Delicious. Apparently this is similar to Darjeeling teas which means I may have to try some. I will definitely be getting more to have on hand and trying some new yellow teas.

Edit: This has cooled a bit and now I can really taste the fruit, lightly peachy I think. I got 2-3 infusions out of this, the last was very very light but still drinkable.

180 °F / 82 °C 2 min, 0 sec

This tea is so fun! I love all the teas with little candy bits and fun stuff like cool colors. This smells amazing in the bag, sweet and fruity.

Brewed, it is awesome. My first steeping was a murky brown/green color, the second bright green at the beginning and then as I forgot about it (oops), it ended up a deep olive. Truly swampy.

Nice fruity taste, didn’t need to add any sugar. I think I can pick up the guava and it is tasty. The green rooibos is great (though I like red as well), light and fruity. Yum yum.

Definitely want to do this iced!

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more
