Made this one as my last pot of the night, in the mood for something light but flavourful. Flavour I am definitely getting, but it is anything but light and delicate. It is almost too strong in my mind, and my throat thinks so too. It is starting to tickle, and my tongue isn’t happy either. Definitely not going to be buying this one. :(

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 3 min, 0 sec

how long did you steep it?

Hmm…. I’m curious about the steep time on this as well. I’ve found that I generally prefer my Bai Mu Dan (Pai Mu Tan, White Peony… whatever) when I prepare it gong fu style to really control the temperature, steep time, etc.

Bio

An avid tea addict in the GTA, Ontario, Canada. I’m always looking for new teas and new tea addicted friends!

My preference is loose leaf of all varieties, however the occasional bagged tea can come along and charm me. Flavoured or straight, there is a good chance that I will be falling in love.

My ratings system is based on the smiley faces above the ratings scale.

0-10 — This tea didn’t get past the initial sip process. I just couldn’t bring myself to drink more, I found it so horrible.

11-50 — It made it past first sips, but as I drank a bit more I realized I really wasn’t enjoying the tea, and would never drink it again.

51-60 — I probably made it through the cup, but won’t be trying another one.

61-69 — Either it’s a mystery tea and I can’t decide if I like it or not, or it is one that I felt was purely adequate.

70-85 — These are the teas that I appreciate and/or like. If they are falling in this area they are ones that I would definitely re-buy, however are not ones that I must always have on hand. The good, but not the amazing.

86-94 — These are the favourites. My cupboard feels empty if they aren’t inside.

95-100 — Tea perfection!
