My mom got me 2oz of this as a sort of going away again gift as I was just home for the weekend and I’ll be at university for the next two months ):

the tea itself has an incredible aroma; I think if I could get that smell in a candle I would make a fortune. It seems to need to be brewed pretty strongly and does get bitter when going over a couple minutes, which, as I believe others before me have noted, contrasts the fruitiness one would want to get out of the apple, grape, strawberry and papaya in this tea. I think they might have been able to get more success with an herbal. Whites are meant to be light but strawberry, for me, doesn’t tend to lend itself to lightness. There were a number of times where I brewed it strong enough to yield a nice, sweet strawberry, and it was definitely delicious. But at the same time, the amount of tea that I had to use for a single cup just to get that taste, and white tea at that (moderately expensive stuff) made me feel kind of bad with every sip I took. Still, really good tasting.

Hey :) welcome to my steeps!
I really only ever drink straight teas, every once and a while I might have something flavoured, but odds are I won’t ever write about any of those. All of my reviews are done using my 120ml gaiwan unless otherwise specified.

I’m mostly into Sheng, Red tea and Oolongs right now, but I also can enjoy greens and whites sometimes.

My cupboard is NOT up to date. I tried for a while, but it’s too much effort, and so many of the teas I have just aren’t on here and eh.

*This system is used on my first 100 reviews, I’ve decided not to rate teas anymore because I’m definitely not qualified to be objective about quality yet and it’s just pointlessly subjective numbers and that’s not really helping anyone
