Thanks Garret for a sample of this with my recent Mandala order!

This is the 2014 harvest. I don’t think I’ve ever seen such large FUZZY white tea leaves! This is seriously some fluffy downy stuff :) The kind of tea you want to pet like a kitty!

I may have slightly underleafed this for my tastes. It is so hard to measure big leaves! This is a smooth, creamy white though. Light but with a rich earthiness. Creamy hay may not sound appealing but that is what it reminds me of. Sweet and summery :)

This tea makes my mouth water :) It’s been so fun to break this new crop out for the tea classes lately. I typically will do my first steep at 5 to 8 minutes when I am working with a white tea. This stuff works great in a tea thermos (grandpa style), too. Try a longer steep with it and see what you get.

And I am the one who should be doing the thanking, pal :) So, without further adieu – THANK YOU!!

I love pretty much every type of tea camellia sinensis can produce. I like herbal teas sometimes but I can’t stand rooibos.

Butiki, Verdant, Mandala, TeaVivre and Den’s are my favorite online retailers so far.
