I received a sample of this with my latest David’s Tea purchase. It has big tea leaves—a fantastic sign. I used about half of the sample because I still don’t have a proper tea ball, and I’d rather let such pretty leaves unfurl in a wee bit of water, than cram it all in this microscopic tea ball I have and not get the bestest flavor.
It smells amaaaaaazing! :) And the taste? Out. Of. This. World. I thought I’d tasted white tea, but no… I’d only had shadows, powder, imitation teas that couldn’t hold a candle to this stuff. I am now, officially, a fan of white tea. It’s sweet all by itself, and has a round, grassy flavor—no funky aftertaste (those who have delved into the black hole that is supermarket bagged tea may know the aftertaste I’m referencing—shudder—).
Yup. I’m impressed. And I just used half a teaspoon. And my water was probably way too hot.
Flavors: Sweet, Vegetal
