So far this tea has been a disappointment to me, which is a bit sad. It is a beautifully handcrafted tea but they were not offering samples of this, I broke down and bought a tin.

I used four pearls at around 175 F in my 10 oz. mug and was thoroughly unimpressed by a tea that was like dishwater.

Second steep, the water was more around 185 and then it got better – a very light floral aroma with a touch of lingering sweetness and a melonish flavor. I was really expecting more because all of the white teas I’ve had from darjeeling have been really good, and it wasn’t cheap.

I’ve emailed H & S to ask about the tea to water ratio so I’ll wait to put a numerical rating on this for now. I might also try the gong fu method with this at home.

Suggest you weigh the pearls and use at least 5 grams for your ten-ounce mug. Lengthen the steeps to 5 min and 8 min. At 175F, the longer steeps shouldn’t cause any bad effects.

Thanks – they suggested I try steeping for 5-6 minutes so I will definitely try that.
