From Harney & Sons

Our friends at Pussimbing Garden in Darjeeling have done it again. These large loose rolled balls of white tea have a special sweet flavor. We prefer them to any other Indian White tea.

So….

I can’t really write a tasting note for this, even though it’s sitting in front of me, because I am confused by this tea. I’m pretty sure I did it wrong.

I’m not sure how many of the marbles to use. I don’t have a scale. :( More, I don’t…really know how long to steep it. And it’s white tea but it smells and tastes very vegetal, and the little marbles don’t unfurl like jasmine. Are they even supposed to?

I’m sending out a tea S.O.S. over here. Does anybody know how to properly steep this stuff?

Ricky

Do it as you would do jasmine pearls? Since I love winging tea =] I’d do 175-185F and put 8-12 marbles for hmmm 10oz of water? 3 minutes?

Harney & Sons Steepster account, where are you?

Also, I want you to know how very, very badly I am resisting some form of a “lost your marbles” pun here. IT IS VERY DIFFICULT.

Thanks for the recc, Ricky. I figure I can wing it maybe twice more…it’s just a sample pack. I’m not too worried about ruining it. There wasn’t much in the failed brew to suggest it’d be OMGINCREDIBLE when done right…but we’ll see!

Tak, I say go for it. Life is too short. And yeah, puns make it shorter for everyone around you, but you just can’t keep that stuff bottled up. It has to be shared, or it dissolves your brain. ‘If it weren’t for my horse…’
