I’m not sure if this has been offered at other times but I received a stack of mini Waffles in a big pack of ripe minis White2Tea offered around Halloween 2020.

It might just be the power of suggestion but I think I can almost smell pancake/waffle syrup in the first couple steeps. After that it’s pretty much just what I think of as young ripe pu-era taste and smell…it’s like if you scrape up a bunch of wet, partially decayed leaves off the ground and stuff them in your mouth, but if that wasn’t gross? I don’t know if that makes sense. I haven’t tried any of the past Waffles cakes to compare or get an idea of how this will age. I’m hoping for more of that syrupy-ness as it gets older but even if it doesn’t change much I could still see myself picking up a cake each time I order or getting more of the minis if they’re available again. It’s not particularly exciting but seems like a good everyday ripe that I’d drink when I want a hot drink but there’s a lot of stuff going on to distract me or I don’t have the “brain energy” to contemplate more complex flavors.

I may have a mild to moderate tea addiction. Black, white, green, pu-erh, it doesn’t matter. I’m a little on the fence about oolongs but I’m starting to think I’m just particular about how they’re brewed. I haven’t tried any yellows yet but they’re on my wishlist so I can have a complete rainbow of tea. My tea problem is bad enough that I don’t necessarily even need tea in my tea, most herbals are welcome in my house too.

Favorites: jasmine, moonlight white, shou mei, chenpi/tangerine peel, violet, rose, Mengku sheng (especially autumn), anji bai cha, taiping houkui, blooming tea balls, tulsi/holy basil, chamomile

Dislikes: red rooibos, eucalyptus, allspice, flavorings of unknown origin, pumpkin, apple, banana, annoying flower petals that don’t add any flavor but are thrown in to look pretty (they tend to float and get in my way if I brew tea grandpa style)
