I find this tea to be a great way to ease into the night, it has a smooth mellow flavor with a light taste of honeysuckle combined with the smooth and light overtones of white peony. Great for 5+ steepings

I love honeysuckle. Going to have to take a look at this Shang Tea you’re always reviewing.

Most of my tea is from Shang because he has a shop in Kansas City (where my parents live). It’s pretty cool, he has a 40-acre tea farm in Fujian where he makes some of the best white tea in the world (in my opinion). You should definitely check out his selection!

That’s pretty high praise! This one’s going on the list. Anything in particular you recommend?

Teafreak

I would stick with his white teas, in particular, white peony king and silver needle king. In you like scented white teas, then I would highly recommend his pao blossom white which is phenomenal. His green and black teas are also good, but I wouldn’t say that they are anything special.

Thanks for the advice! I’ll root around for what I’m sure will be the great tea purchase slaughter of 2010.

It also looks like he has a sampler on his website which might be a good way to taste his different teas: http://www.shangtea.com/store/c/10-Tea-Sampler.html

I began my tea adventure when a counselor at Spanish camp introduced me to yerba mate. From there I soon started to embrace all different kinds of tea.

Currently my favorite tea is dragonwell, with silver needles being a close second. I really enjoy trying new teas and experimenting with different steep times and temperatures,
