This is my first pure white tea I am trying. I have had Pia Mu Tan before, however with pomegranate oil, which somehow reminded me of some non-sugary clear soda. But this isn’t a review about Pomegranate Pai Mu Tan.

I am doing this gong fu style, that makes me sound so badass, so I will try multiple infusions.

First impression, clean, light, nutty, and slightly sweet. I can definitely see this as a good tea to relax with in the evening when the day is winding down.

On an interesting note, I just looked at the Tropical Tea Company packaging and apparently I have Pia Mu Tan, not Pai Mu Tan, I wonder what the difference would be in Chinese. Haha. Also I think it is good to bring up that I have needed to replace the ziploc tea pouches for all of the tea I have bought from Tropical Tea Company, since it is weird, every time I open the package, half of the ziploc seal comes away from the bag, so I can’t reseal the bag. Did anyone else have this issue?

Former barista at a coffeehouse, tea drinker for a few years but nothing serious. My cupboard was limited to two different teabags. But once I tried my first loose leaf tea, I was hooked and suddenly the world of tea is wide open. I feel a nearly desperate need to expand my tea selection as wide as I can make it, and to learn as much about tea and tea culture as possible. I am now actively looking for tea addicts anonymous meetings, but I found this site instead…


On the run…
