Very glad I managed to get my hands on some of this tea before it went out of stock. I was absolutely enamored with What-Cha’s green Qing Xin and had high expectations for the white version.
I was surprised by how massive the pouch was when it arrived – the leaves are very large, light, and delicate, something like dried bay leaves in appearance!
Just as delicate as the leaves themselves are the aromas and flavors that burst out of them and the balance between them, the smooth tactility of sipping the liquor, and the light feeling it leaves you with on a sweltering summer day. Highly recommended.

Earlier notes remain the same. This one is actually doing well in temperate summer weather. Still breadsy and green, having a little bit more mango in later steeps. It’s in the 70’s right now and perfect in Michigan. I just wish the temperature would stay and not get above 70’s….I despise humid heat.

Right there with you. The humidity has been awful here this week!

derk

I’m taking a road trip from Miami to New Orleans first week of July and sleeping in the car. What was I thinking!
