This isn’t tasting as strong as last time, maybe because I blew out my tastebuds with hot pepper. Note to Self: When de-seeding jalapeno peppers DO NOT give into temptation to try eating the seeds. >.<

One thing I’ve noticed is that the leaves are a lot more broken up than those shown in the picture on the H&S website, although this is probably due to it being a sample packet and possibly getting crushed a bit in the mail.

I resteeped the leaves and the sweetness of the white tea came through more, though the bergamot was dulled. There was also a strange sort of vegetal taste to it.

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.
