drank China White Tea by Royal King
709 tasting notes

I had a cup of coffee this morning, and then this, and now I’m jittery. I only get jittery if I have a cup of caffeinated tea after a cup of coffee, so I don’t for one second believe that this is caffeine-free, despite what the box says.

A Chinese coworker gave my boyfriend this tea, and he gave me a few bags to try.

He loves white tea, but it’s not usually my favorite. But this one is pretty good! Very smooth, very drinkable and surprisingly flavorful. I can’t really describe the taste, other than as a nondescript, vegetable note, but it’s definitely there and definitely palatable.

Not bad, although it’s probably the Lipton of Chinese white tea.

Flavors: Vegetables

Bio

Hello! 28, female, American. A total hopeless bookworm— I have a Bachelor’s and a Master’s in English. I also love dogs, all things that are colored purple, and sarcasm. I work in the Information Technology field at present.

I’m not a swapper, but I hope we can still be friends :)

Favorite tea types: Black, pu’erh, oolong, kombucha, genmaicha, matcha, rooibos, honeybush (recent change of heart there), and floral greens.

Favorite flavor notes: Roasted, fermented, earthy, floral, nutty, bread-y, umami; dessert-inspired flavors like chocolate, vanilla, and maple.

I’m very picky about chai and spice/ spicy blends as well as fruit-flavored teas; they really need to be done right, IMHO. I’m iffy about mate, as well as herbal teas, although there are a few tisanes that I enjoy (roasted dandelion root, chamomile).

Flat-out dislike: White tea, most unflavored green teas, hibiscus in high quantities, plain peppermint.

90-100: Perfection and heaven and magic, all in one cup.

70-89: Good.

50-69: Meh.

49 and below: Blerg.
