drank White Night by Mandala Tea
1184 tasting notes

This is a very nice white tea. The dry leaf is beautiful, with silver and black leaves.

I used 1tbls of leaf. It was challenging to get the leaf to stay on the spoon because it is so twisted and long!
It seems to be a complex tea. The first infusion is light with lots of silky smooth hay and honey notes. It is a little different than any other white tea I have tried in the past.
The second infusion (at 3 minutes) seems to be creamier. It is a very comforting cuppa.
The third infusion (4 minutes) is sweet and smooth, the honey is back.
I did a 4th (5 minutes) and 5th (6 minutes) infusion, but didn’t have enough time to pay attention to detailed notes

On the website, it says to rinse the tea. The bag that I received has different steeping parameters than on the website and it did not say to rinse. Maybe I will try the websites parameters next time to see what develops.

I am a nurse. I have numerous hobbies: reading, crocheting, crafting, card making, scrapbooking, photography, shopping, and of course drinking TEA!

I started drinking loose leaf tea in Dec. 2010 when I went into a DavidsTea for the first time and have been hooked ever since! My favourite is probably white tea, but I also love black and oolong. I also like a nice relaxing rooibos or herbal in the evening. On Sundays, I like to treat myself and make a tea latte.

My favourite flavours are nutty, vanilla, chocolate, jasmine, tropical, fruity, earl grey.
My dislikes are lavender, rose, hibiscus, banana, and straight green or overly vegetal teas.

I am admittedly fairly generous in my rating scale. Most of my teas I rate at 90 and above, and would re-stock these teas.
Anything under 90 I probably wouldn’t re-stock unless I found a great price.
