Wow. This is a seriously good white tea. Of course I say that about all of Shang’s whites. I sometimes feel like I’m being a cheerleader for Shang’s teas, but they are seriously so good!

Clover and a bit of honey, sweetness but heftier body than the White Peony King. I don’t notice any peony scent either, but this is a white tea with body and I lurve it. I’m not brave enough yet to try this in the brick form – I’m pretty sure I am not good enough at tea to take that on successfully. :)

And it’s super hard to measure since the leaves are sooooo huge! So 2 teaspoons is a total guesstimate.

Preparation

White teas are usually tasteless to me. You are giving me a hope;)

Shang’s whites were the first and still some of the few whites that had taste for me.

Wow, I was THIS close today to ordering the sample pack. But I resisted! Perhaps after I can manage several sipdowns of what I actually have, I will order it.

While it does require a small investment (usually 10-15 bucks) a digital weighing scale can really help in measuring out tea, since leaf sizes vary greatly. It may require a bit of snooping online to see what amount of teas to use by weight, but I find that measuring tea in grams gives me very good and consistent results. :D

And as far as that goes, I always log the amount in grams per 100ml of water on my reviews, if that’s any help. It’s easy to adjust the amount if you know how much water your brewing vessel holds. 100 ml is about 3 1/3 ounces.

Tea afficianado. I wish I could make a living creating and serving tea parties, but alas, bills prevent that possibility. :) So I make do by catering tea parties for friends and co-workers and drinking tons of tea with my cats on my lap. :)
