I am finally home and picked this to wind down before the day must begin again. My favorite aspect of white tea is its colour. I absolutely love the iridescent pearl glow this tea brews. I always brew white tea in my glassware, so I can show off these beauties. The glass practically disappears and it magically distorts its surroundings. hahah I just love it! I know that this isn’t the best Bai Hao Yin Zhen, but it does hold its own. Its a very nice and general brew. Its dependable to say the least. The dry buds may not be porcelain diamonds; they do have some darker colors and mudded feel. This is still a simply enticing brew. It has a light honey flavor with a wisp of floral. It gives you a smooth nectar mouthfeel and finishes with warm hay. I enjoy it and always have. This is a great buy and it has always been my white tea staple.

Flavors: Floral, Honey, Hot hay

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 3 min, 45 sec 1 tsp 6 OZ / 177 ML

Young and experienced Tea consumer. I’m continuously learning and developing knowledge about tea. If I have learned anything at all from the world of tea it is that I do not know anything about the world of tea. I enjoy good tea, and I try to acquire the best of the best. I usually brew gongfu but I’ve been known from time to time to resort back to western brewing.

I have an Instagram (haveteawilltravel), and I am proud of my photographs. I use my pictures in my reviews,and I hope that they aid in portraying the beauty of tea and teaware.

Tea Rating System:
I rate my teas based on the category they fall into (Puer, Red, Oolong, Darjeeing, Flushes, Yancha… etc.)
This means that I will rate a Oolong based on how it stands up as a quality Oolong. I try not to compare teas, rather I work to evaluate them on their craftsmanship, harvest, processing, and qi.

I am most strict with Shou and Sheng Puerh, only because of the vast expanse of various experiences, such as; region, vintage, production, processing, etc.
