Yay white tea! Even though I am staunchly loyal to the dark side of tea, I also love white teas. They’re the stormtroopers to the Darth Vader that is black tea. They just work together. You green tea lovers can keep your Dagobah swamp growth :-P

These leaves are large, lush, and light green and smell sweetly vegetal. They brew up a light green-yellow, which sounds mundane. This tea is not that. It tastes of honeysuckle and mountain air. There’s a vegetal element to it, almost like a spinach. But it doesn’t assault your tongue like a green tea would. It’s there, a polite distance away, having a quiet conversation with you. The loveliness ends with a sweet mineral taste.

I love my silver needle whites more, but this tea was excellent. Thanks for sending it, Virginia!

Ooh mountain air! Sounds so lovely and uplifting

It is! Uplifting, but also relaxing if that makes sense.

Tea-obsessed, book worm scientist.

I love black tea, especially Chinese black tea- I’m looking at you Fujians and Yunnans! I also enjoy Indian teas, mostly first flush darjeelings (and a select few assams).
I think I’m recently starting to like oolongs better though- gasp! I’ve been cheating on my black teas with all these lovely, alluring green floral oolongs. Sorry I’m not sorry.
White tea gets a lot of love too! I am particularly fond of silver needle whites.
I can’t seem to appreciate green teas and rooibos is foul, IMO.

Other interests: Books! Board games! Nerdy entertainment like Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica, Game of Thrones, Sherlock, all the nature documentaries, etc etc. Also Disney!

I’m up for swaps!
