From Adagio Teas

Green tea (do not be confused by its name) that grows along the slopes of the Taimu mountains in the Fujian province of China. The young leaves and unopened buds are carefully gathered and processed exclusively by hand. The result is a tea that appears intricately woven with large and beautiful white tips. It produces a very light cup that is noticeably sweet, and infused with a fresh, delicate scent.

$7/2 oz

Not bad, but really mild and kind of boring. Nice light vegetal grassiness to it, but nothing exciting enough that I feel like I need to buy it again after I run out of this sample.

My first taste of this I totally didn’t like, but then the flavors settled down a bit and I enjoyed the subtile, warming flavors. But by the end of the cup I was back to just not enjoying the flavor again. I got smokey and vegetal flavors. I think the best I can really say is I didn’t dislike this tea, but I don’t think I’ll be buying it again.

My second brew of the day and the first of my green tea sample from Adagio. As a newb still trying to find his way – I enjoy the sweetness and light freshness about the tea. Will have to have more before I can make a final judgement of whether I’d buy more.

One of my favorites in the green tea sampler I ordered. I don’t like strong, grassy greens, so this one fits me very well, especially with a dash of honey.

This is a very refreshing,very light white tea. I relly can’t believe that it was so cheap! The directions on the package say to let it steep for two minutes, but because I like my tea strong I tend to let it go for three.

I often use this as my middle of the day or evening tea.

I’ve found that when White Monkey is served to geusts (even non-tea snobs) they enjoy it and often ask me what it is, and where I got it.

Overall: I find that this is a geat whtie tea for a unbeatable price, and I highly recommend it.

When I use the lose tea I find that I can steep the same leafs three times, however they lose their ability to really get the job done after that.

Mellow, mild and barely green.

Kinda bland. Not a bad tea at all, but there are better plain green teas.

Very light green tea with a sweet flavor that reminds me of honey. Not at all grassy like some green teas can be but not as flavorful as I would’ve liked.
