I gave this tea a fair chance, steeping it at a variety of different temperatures for different lengths of time, but it’s just not for me. The cake itself is ‘pretty’ and easy to break apart. However, It doesn’t have much flavor, zero complexity, and has bitter undertones. The tea itself is very picky even for a white. I found that the ‘best’ it got was @ 175 F for two minutes; it produced a strong golden colored liquor and only slight bitterness. The taste itself is sweet, sugarcane, with bitter afternotes. I find myself passing it over for other teas (most of which were cheaper). Overall, overpriced and unenjoyable – I find it a struggle to drink a full cup of this.

Flavors: Astringent, Straw, Sugarcane, Sweet

Note: I write most of my reviews for the product site, then I copy and paste my reviews back here so I can keep track of them all. If you see a double review somewhere, this is the reason why.

Hello! I’m an avid tea drinker here to keep track of some of the teas I’ve really enjoyed. I love ‘most’ teas but tend to go through phases where I’ll drink more black/white/green/whatever teas. Currently in the aged tea phase. Anything in the ‘cupboard’ is what I consider a favorite.

I’m not stingy with a 10/10 rating – if I really enjoy something, and plan on drinking it over and over, then it will get a top rating.

I rarely give a 0/10 rating; for a tea to get such a low rating there would have to be something wrong with it (mold, etc.)

Happy drinking!
