The scent of the dry leaves is very strawberry and yummy smelling. However, upon brewing, the strawberry takes a backseat to the strong grassy floral flavor of white tea. It took me a few brews to realize how much leaf, how long to steep and what temp of water to use. Ideally, you want less leaf than you’d expect and only steep for 2 minutes max. Fortunately, it’s good for multiple infusions but it’s really not my favorite. I treat it like a slightly fruity plain white. I don’t drink this when I’m looking for strawberry flavor.

I came from a tea drinking family, but I never appreciated the different qualities and varieties of tea until older. All that time wasted! But I guess I needed to be mature enough to appreciate the tea experience. :)

My favorite teas are green oolongs and white tea. I also love greens, especially gyokuro. I have a huge appreciation for rooibos and honeybush as they are often that only thing I can drink in the evening. I am a relatively new convert to black teas. This is unfortunate for my wallet but extremely wonderful for my palate. :)

In any case, I have a love for both flavored and unflavored teas. They are different experiences for sure, but both enjoyable. I find that it often depends on my mood.

I am on a quest to find a tea that will win my husband over. I think I’m making some headway…
