This tea is so gorgeously light! Probably too light as a first tea of the day, but I really didn’t know what to expect. I do like it for what it is, though. It smells very sweet too, like maple syrup. I think it has a chance to become one of my favorite blacks along with Golden Moon’s Sinharaja and thepuriTea’s Jasmine Golden Yunnan.

EDIT: Ha! So it’s white tea. Amazing! I never would’ve guessed. I think google should become my friend before I post my tea musings ;)

This is actually white tea! Nice that it can hold up with your black teas!

Ha ha, now that’s a tea faux pas… or something! I could’ve sworn it was black (apparently the ‘white’ in the name was not a clue to me)… Perhaps because of the steeping instructions? Either way, it’s really good :D

The leaves are pretty dark too, so its definitely understandable.

ME & TEA

I started drinking tea when I was a teenager, my dad used to make tea a million times a day as it was (and still is!) good for his health. So he would make it for the entire family. Usually it was Lipton with a teaspoon of sugar per cup and a slice of lemon. I was fond of it made this way then a lot.

Then I would have occasional loose leaf teas, I slowly got into green tea… I would mostly stick to bagged tea though. It was just convenient.

Only recently, in the middle of 2013, did I start getting seriously into all kinds of loose leaf tea.

JUST ME
Apart from tea, I love reading, board-gaming with my husband, learning foreign languages (currently Spanish and Portuguese) and listening to lots and lots of music!

And if we just stick to food-related stuff I am also a great aficionado of good craft beer and dark chocolate :)
