Definitely need to steep this for the full time, or it’s not as good. The peach is a a little lighter than I was hoping, but overall not a bad tea. I also like the smell of the leaves.. mmm.. peachy!

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 8 min or more

Really? That surprises me because I’ve found all of their whites best @ 3min- especially their flavored ones.

Well, not every white tea is the same, and not everyone likes teas the same strength. Hence, this is wombatgirl’s tasting note about her experience with this tea.

Shanti, no need to get snappy. I was simply stating my surprise. I was not telling her how to drink or prepare her tea. I do realize every person is different, but some differences surprise me more than others.

Cofftea, I don’t know what your intentions are/were, but a lot of your comments come off as unnecessarily aggressive. Starting a comment off with “Really?” and then talking about how you would clearly do it differently and have a better outcome is seems dismissive in most situations. This honestly isn’t the worst example I’ve seen from you, and I apologize if my frustrations are being aired in response to the wrong example. But multiple others have called you out on it, so I don’t think I’m just making this up. And perhaps you don’t mean to sound condescending, but this is the internet, and you have to be aware the fact that without hearing your intonation, your comments can come off as as “catty” and underhanded rather than “suprised.” Sorry for being so snappy, but there’s nothing more I hate than people having their own experiences denied or dismissed.

Bio

I’ve got a lot of interests: sushi, science fiction/fantasy, medieval recreation, cooking (specifically medieval cooking), reading, British science fiction (Doctor Who!), hand sewing and now TEA!!

My favorites tend to be oolongs and flavored black teas. I like highly flavored teas more than delicate ones. Rooibos tends to taste like dirt to me, and hibiscus is very sour to my palate. But I’m always up to try all sorts of things, and will often find things that I really like which I thought I’d hate.
