I’m not a straight white tea lover so I was hesitant when I got this one to try, especially at the price! I used one of the “perfect teaspoon” scoops and wow, what seems like so little dry exploded into these beautiful leaves when they unfurled in brewing. They’re clearly so fresh and new and are the most beautiful brewed leaves I think I’ve seen in a tea. I can’t seem to stop running my fingers through them, as weird as that seems.

The tea itself brews to a very nice flavour, not overly strong with no trace of bitterness. The brew is golden in colour and I found that just a half teaspoon of sugar brought out all of the undernotes to make it a delightful cup. I was definitely pleasantly surprised by this one!

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!
