drank Ruby White by MEM Tea Imports
7 tasting notes

For a white tea, the leaves look a lot more oxidized than most other white teas. I measured out 3 tsp, but this tea is extremely fluffy. If you have an accurate small-weights scale, I would recommend weighing the tea out in grams.

That being said, this particular brew has a subtle, sweet, and mild taste. It’s not my favorite white tea, but it is just generally nice. There is a slight grassy and vegetal note, as in most white teas, but it’s not unpleasant. At the same time, there’s no minerality or unpleasant metallic taste to my palate. Despite the lightness of the flavor, there’s still a good body, and not much of a lingering finish, which makes it generally pleasant to drink. I’d say this would make a good tea to drink in the springtime; warm but still refreshing.

Flavors: Honey, Raspberry

About Me:
A tea enthusiast, and sometimes a cat on the internet. Currently revisiting some old favorites and sampling some new blends.

While I do like cream and sugar in some teas, I always taste teas without additives initially.

Personal Taste:
I try to taste as widely as I can, but I definitely play favorites with certain flavors. Floral, citrus, and berry flavors in full-bodied teas are the most appealing to me. Overwhelming spice and smoke notes are on the more difficult side, though I continue to try and broaden my horizons.

I don’t really have a strong system for numeric ratings beyond general gut feeling, so I try to write down my thoughts while they’re still fresh. Generally speaking, my words are going to speak louder than the numbers on each tea. Hopefully those thoughts will be useful to people.
