Kenya Premium White Tea from What-Cha

Style: White Tea – Region: Kenya

100 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Sep. 17th, 2014

Looking at the dry leaves, it doesn't look like a white, it looks like a fuzzy golden tea from Yunnan...sniffing the leaves it has the sweet corn notes of a Kenyan Silver Needle, the heady floral notes of an oolong, and the malty, sweet potato, and caramel notes of a golden Yunnan tea. It tastes just like the liquid sm...

Kenyan Silver Needle from What-Cha

100 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Sep. 4th, 2014

he aroma of this particular silver needle is nothing short of mouthwatering, which is why I advise pouring the tea you wish to sniff out of the bag, don't want to ruin tea by drooling. It is incredibly sweet with notes of peaches and sweet corn, this transitions to floral notes that very much so brings to mind blooming...

Organic Peach White Tea from Wegmans

Sep. 3rd, 2014

5 minute (long end) steep...smell is mostly vegetal with hint of fruit like raspberry...guess that's the peach...as one who favors stronger teas this isn't my "cup of tea"...too light...flavor itself isn't bad..more vegetal than peachy though.....just needs boldness!!

I loved this. I love Shou Mei, and this was the first example of it I tried in compressed form. It was definitely one of the best samples of Shou mei that I've tried.

The dry leaf of this cake has a moderate smell of dried fruit, with a hint of fermenting fruit in there. It's not the most aromatic of TeaVivre's t...

Aug. 14th, 2014

The aroma is sweet, like a rich blend of muscatel and honey, in fact it reminds me a bit of honey wine (specifically the Grecian Honeyed Wine I used to make when I could imbibe in my younger days) with a nice finish of hay.

The taste, oh man, it is so sweet! I feel like I am drinking tea that tastes like mown hay, f...

Aug. 13th, 2014

Tastes to me like a fresh, light green tea, though I do feel like the white tea undertones gives it a fuller flavor. Very smooth, no bitterness, a nice cup of pure tea. Slightly floral in aroma. I think I may have used too little leaf for the first cup because my only complaint is that I'd like a slightly stronger cup....

A top-notch white peony tea that I found a bit tricky to brew: aromatically complex, but easy to oversteep. If considering the aroma alone, this would be among my favorite white teas ever, but the experience of drinking it was slightly less than top-notch, I'd say only solidly good, not excellent.

The dry leaf is i...

Aug. 9th, 2014

The aroma of these adorable silver fuzzy leaves is like a field of wildflowers, there are notes of fresh vegetation, hay, flower nectar, and wildflowers. There are also notes of honey, sweet corn, and lettuce. Silver Needle is a complex yet delicate smelling pile of leaves, I have always enjoyed that about it.

Aug. 6th, 2014

Not a bad white tea. It tastes a bit like a hot version of unsweetened iced tea, or like a black tea without the bitterness. I haven't found a pure white tea that's a favorite yet and suspect I'll prefer flavored versions, but if this was all that was around I wouldn't be disappointed. I steeped the bag three times and...

May. 12th, 2014

A delightful, light tea that tastes to me more like a delicate green tea than a white tea. I've tried two other snow buds or Xue Ya teas, and I think this is a prime example of this style.

Dry leaf is coarse and hairy, silvery.

Brews fairly slowly, as I'd expect for an intact, whole-leafed tea. I steeped for th...

I think white teas may be too subtle for me. I brewed this according to the instructions, and I tried it more than once, but I just can't get excited about it. It's not a bad tea, but it's not great.

I just don't think it's worth $23 for 2 ounces, sadly. Since 2 ounce is the minimum, that is what I paid. I'm hop...

Apr. 27th, 2014

This tea is kind of weird. I don't know what to think of it. It smells kind of like a meaty soup, with a smoky aroma. I don't even know how to describe the flavor. It doesn't really taste like what I think of as white tea. It has sort of a muddled, soggy, and rich quality, like soup. I added cream and sugar.

Thank you Dewey for sharing this one with me, alongside two excellent loose-leaf teas which I have yet to review.

I thought this one was pretty bad.

Dry tea bag smells slightly toasty. The leaf inside the bag is a light green color, lighter than most shou mei white tea.

Upon brewing, smells much more vegetal....

One of the best teas I've ever had. Very smooth with no bitterness at all. I found a box/100 locally for under $8 which makes it a great bargain.

Blueberries and caffeine, an uplifting feeling to remind me spring sun will soon be rising with me in the morning.

This tea has powerful aroma, so sweet and juicy. The lemon grass heightens the quality of the blueberries and makes my morning bowl of oatmeal, honey nut cheerios, or greek yogurt so balanced.

To be fair, I'm not a huge fan of silver needle white tea, so this wasn't among my all-time favorite teas, but but I thought this was a good example of this style, and very enjoyable to drink. Served in Velvet Sky Bakery in Jenkintown--an ongoing thank-you to Velvet Sky for ordering numerous small samples to allow me ...

Feb. 11th, 2014

The aroma is quite mild evoking fresh vegetation and early springtime with a hint of floral. Brewed the leaves have the aroma of minerals, vegetation, and sage. The liquid also has notes of sage and smells incredibly clean.

The taste is mild (I have used that word a lot with this tea!) and a bit citrusy. There are ...

The aroma is crisp and clean with notes of cedar and pine with tones of pepper and sage. Once brewed the tea becomes more herbaceous with strong hints of sage and basil, there are notes of pine resin and sweetness of freshly tapped tree sap.

The tea's flavor reminds me of the way that a winter forest smells. It is ...

A pleasant, full-bodied tea, but aromatically weak and not very interesting. Not as aromatic as Ten Ren's white tea, which remains my favorite white tea from a tea bag. Smells very mild, mostly of caramel, very faintly floral.

Flavor is subdued: not very bitter. Just the right amount of astringency: smooth, even ...

This was among the most interesting of the white teas I've tried, although more familiar and similar to typical white teas than moonlight white. E. Alex Gerster called this tea "sturdy" and I like that; I also want to thank him for providing me with this sample.

Dry leaf has a peculiar aroma, like caramel and overr...

Dec. 12th, 2013

Silver Needle Tea can be extremely fickle to brew and very subtle in flavor and aroma. It is typically a very mild and smooth tea, and this sample of Wegman's was very much in character.

Brief steepings at about 190 degrees produced a weak aroma, and yet nice flavor of sweet grass with a touch of melon. For a first ...
