I mean I dunno, I know it’s a straight forward white tea, but there is something I love about it. Sure it’s very light, but its heavenly. It feels crisp on your tongue, the flavors linger around, and what awesome flavors they are.

Thanks to Butiki for sending me these amazing samples! This tea is so beautiful. I’m not a prime source on white teas, but these leaves are covered in downy, soft, white fluffs. Which is just amazing. The brew reminds me of green veggies and almost like hay. The flavor is very soft and relaxing. It’s much more vegetal than most teas that I drink. But as I’m eating watermelon with it, it stands out beautifully. I didn’t plan on this pairing of drink/food but it’s surprising how well they match flavor wise! The only reason I’m lowering the score on this one is I don’t think it would be a good everyday tea for me personally.
Oh my word, has it really been two months since I last wrote? :o Many apologies! During that time I was studying for a Driving Theory Test which I have now passed and in honesty I went to a bit of a dark place and had to lift myself back up. I drank tea but did not feel like doing much of anything, I’m sure some of you will understand. It’s behind me now and I’ve had my time to recover.
Today I have had approx four mugs of this which includes a re-steep. It’s been helping me get through my day very nicely, a random pick this morning after breakfast. The leaves are beautiful, brown that turns green in the water and smells lightly of brown sugar and dry wood.
Flavour has been incredible all day, remaining consistently sweet, earthy, wooden and with a slight sour hint in the after taste. Not enough to be malty but almost, more sour wood but fairly thick.
I think this is one of the nicest Bai Mu Dan that I have tried, even with the re-steep it’s delicious!
Will work on a new KittyLovesTea blog entry featuring an award winning Canton Tea Black so stay tuned for that. Also keep an eye open for more SororiTea Sisters posts :D Will be working on one in a day or two.
Oh and ps – I’m listening to Spotify as I just joined and must say I’m loving this song at the moment, if you like rock/metal then check it out.
Red Is The New Black – Funeral For A Friend
This was so very delicious. I am totally in love with this tea. It is so light and sweet. I don’t even know what to compare it to, but it’s awesome. I oversteeped it because the boys were being very demanding, so I expected it to be a bitter mess, but it was so good! going to go see if I can get a second steep out of the leaves, cause I will be sad to see this go.
Very pleasingly, this tea also works delightfully well if you brew it ‘Grandpa style’ – I took the leaves from my earlier infusions and left them in the bottom of a travel-mug/tumbler and filled it with just-off-the-boil water. I then topped it up, throughout my shift at the hospice, and it held up really well – it brewed some really delicious, refreshing tea and never became bitter.
It helped keep me warm, too, on the bus there and back. It’s amazing how much colder it was tonight – it really did feel like November…!
