Sampler 7/31
This tea is has a very delicate taste. As a hot tea I really didn’t get any taste of ginger which was disappointing cause i love ginger. I don’t know if thats because I drink ginger brew all the time (if you don’t know what ginger brew is it’s super gingery soda). As the tea cools down the ginger becomes more apparent. I think this would be really good iced as an alternative to water, as i’m not a fan of straight water.

I don’t like straight water either… and as much as I don’t like tisanes w/o true tea added, refigerated ginger water (I call it this cuz it has no liquor lol) is by FAR the best thirst quencher I’ve found. Even more so w/ a bit of lemon juice.

I have yet to find a white tea that tasted like anything but “lightly tinted” water.

@gmathis, http://www.52teas.com/2010/09/20/apple-vanilla-white-chai/ It’s actually too dark for me for a white… I think it’s due to the shou mei in the blend. So you may want to find an unflavored shou mei if you like the AV chai. Also, definitely make sure you’re using enough leaf. I like 3g/8oz cuppa. The leaves of the Apple Vanilla White Chai are quite small but most white tea leaves are so lengthy and light that it takes over a TB of tea leaf to make up 3g. This is also why I purchased a tea scale… measuring (white specifically) tea by the teaspoon is such a pain in the butt.

Maybe too subtle for me! I did notice the ginger taste becoming more noticeable with each drink, which was nicely curious. Loved the slight and spicy ginger aftertaste.

Second steeping: done at 195F at 3 minutes again. Much more distinct flavor this time, and I can taste the ginger from the start. Definitely not too strong – it feels like a very comforting tea overall.

I’m not a ginger fan when it’s by itself, like fish sauce. So I knew I wouldn’t like this tea much. Still gave it a chance. Underneath the ginger flavor, the white tea was just ok. Just not inlove with it. Not bothering to rebrew…

I had high hopes for this one since I love ginger. I smelled the spicy scent of ginger. It just didn’t deliver as I’d hoped. The white tea was lovely enough. Otherwise just an okay tea.

Since learning that ginger is good for the days you feel a little icky, I saved this sample for such an occasion. Which means I’ve only tested it when I’m sick. Which means any hot beverage tastes good.

Ordinarily, I hate ginger. I think it tastes like soap. But it’s so subtle in this tea that I liked it regardless. Maybe it’s a psychological thing that it makes me feel better, I don’t know, or maybe there’s more ginger in there than I taste. But it’s slightly sweet, and gives a good kick to its white tea base.

Next time I go on a tea-shopping binge I’ll pick this one up. Who needs cold medication when you can drink tea?

Well that’s weird, the sent is more of grass. I was expecting a sent of ginger… I choose this tea today since my stomach is a little off.

Ok, where is the ginger? The taste of ginger that I’ve come to expect in anything labeled ginger is not here. (Now, I don’t really care for the taste of ginger anyway but how do I know it will work if I don’t taste it…)

This is a very mild tea. There is a hint of grass but otherwise, I’m just getting white tea. Although as it cools, the scent of ginger is there, ever so slight.

Oh, there is the ginger in the aftertaste, very much not strong. I have to say, if this tea works as well as the intense ginger ones at calming a stomach, I prefer this!

Wow, the second brew is so different. It smells distinctly of ginger and has a stronger ginger taste.

Figured I need to get some sleep tonight, so brewed this golden moon sample.

This tea is great. There isn’t really a very distinct smell to it and the taste is obviously white, but at the same time the ginger definitely cancels out the usual odd taste of white tea, making this a very subtle and calming tea. The flavor is not too strong, which is a major plus for white tea in my opinion.

It also seemed to be pretty tolerant of the water temperature, since I didn’t wait too long for the water to cool down from boiling before putting it in, it still steeped to a very nice yellow color and there is no bitterness I can taste. This may very well be a golden moon tea I’ll purchase more of, I can never have enough white teas for light night drinking !

A nice, spicy, stomach and nerve soothing brew. I enjoyed my sample of this so much that I ordered a cannister of it and I’ve been very pleased with it. It is especially good today following the Pu-Erh tea from earlier. I think it makes a great pre-yoga sip.

The white tea is gentle and pleasant. The ginger was not overly dominant, just a hint of flavor, but I got this tingly sensation at the back of my throat that stayed with me for a while after I finished drinking. I’m not sure if I like that or not. I steeped a second time and got a much heavier ginger presence, both in flavor and aroma. I think I like the second cup better than the first.

I’m not very familiar with white tea, so I don’t know how this compares to other whites, but it’s good.

Smells nice and there is a gentle ginger taste with an underlying sweet tea. I am not a white tea fan, I don’t have the palate for it. Even so, it was good in a very understated way.
