Just like the store’s description says, the taste of this tea is closer to a black than a white…. My first steeping was for 1 minute – it was a pretty dark amber and pretty bitter… I dumped it out right away.

The second steeping I put it in for less than 30 seconds and it actually wasn’t terrible. Still, steeping it for such a short time meant that it was pretty mild and not really complex.

Overall I don’t really like this tea… It’s not really complex or what I’m looking for in a white tea. Also, the pieces are so small that it’s almost a powder – this makes steeping a bit more difficult, and almost impossible if you don’t have an infusor basket.

I have liked tea for many years, but never really discovered the world of tea until about 2 years ago. Now I’m on a mission to build a decent collection of good teas. My favorites are Green, White, and sheng(raw) Puer – without the addition of fruity, flowery, or artificial flavorings.
