Aug. 31st, 2021

One-litre pot at home, made from broad green-brown leaves and top shoots of Pai Mu Tan tea. Pours clear straw (against white china) with no sediment. Clear aroma of white tea leaves, with malty touches. Delicate, leafy flavour with hints of flowers and malty touches. Leafy aftertaste. A very nice, delicate and unpreten...

This tea is amazing! It has a mild chocolatey/cocoa butter flavor which is really nice. The tea is so smooth and buttery and not astringent or bitter at all!

This tea is great! It tastes vegetabally in a good way and it has a nice fragrant aroma. It is not bitter or astringent at all. It is also a great price for how high quality and delicious it is!

Mar. 8th, 2021

This is only the second Moonlight White tea I've ever tried; the first was from Life in Teacup. I've had this tea for nearly two years from its harvest date, but am only reviewing it now, so I've seen how it ages slightly. It seemed to change character much more quickly than a pu-erh.

The leaf is striking and unique...

91 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 25th, 2021

The first thing I notice about this tea is the very comforting aroma it has. It smells and tastes sort of like freshly baked bread. It is a very smooth and easy to drink tea while still being very flavorful and interesting. It's thick bodied and it is not astringent at all which I really like.

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Nov. 4th, 2020

I haven't had a lot of positive experiences with White2Tea brand tea, so far. I really didn't like their Hot Brandy mix of white and black teas (it seemed like a bad idea after thinking about it because of the very different way the two age and the fact that they often use different temperatures for brewing). The Night...

Mar. 6th, 2020

Half-litre pot at home, made from 20 small pearls of handrolled Dragon Phoenix white tea leaves and jasmine leaves, which unfold into one-inch-long leaves during the brewing. The first cup pours clear pale straw with no sediment; the colour grown darker with each cup, and the last cup does have a small amount of sedime...

Mar. 3rd, 2020

Half-litre pot at home. Pours clear and nearly colourless, with just a faint touch of pale straw, with no sediment. Mild aroma of white tea with barely discernible hints of some herbal spice. Delicate flavour of white tea, with mild floral and herbal notes. Smooth palate, with bitterish hints. The second cup has more c...

White Tea from Touch Organic

69 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 27th, 2020

Though flavorful for white tea in a teabag, this is still a delicate tea. The dry teabags have a nice scent that smells dry and vegetal, like straw with a hint of dry grass or hay. The description on the box implies (but doesn't explicitly say) that this is white peony, being made up of both leaves and unopened buds. T...

This is a nice tea to look at, but the flavor is weak and bland. A little nutty taste. No plans to get more of this.

Jun. 15th, 2018

I've had this for a few weeks now, but I've put off this review because this is my first pure white tea. The leaves were picked in April of 2016, making the tea a little over two years old as of this review. It has a gentle yet complex aroma of autumn leaves, vanilla, cinnamon, old books, and hints of flowers and spice...

May. 29th, 2018

An amazing and sweet tea! It is not very expensive and is a very high quality tea. The ball is tightly packed and I was able to get several infusions(keep in mind you can't break up the ball easily so I would use a at least 12 oz cup and fuse for 5 minutes). The aroma isn't strong but is very nice and sweet, it smells ...

Yunnan Silver Needles from Passenger Coffee

Nov. 7th, 2017

This tea was served at Copper Cup coffee shop in Lancaster, PA. Prior to that, I hadn't even heard of Passenger Coffee, and this tea really blew me away; I thought it exceptional.

I tend not to like silver needle white teas because they're often a bit too subtle (or, put less diplomatically, bland or weak) for me, ...

85 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Oct. 11th, 2017

Shou Mei is a very stem-y and leafy loose left. Caina says to steep 1tbsp for about 25 seconds, with all the stems and big leafs it's pretty hard to measure. It's actually a lot easier just to eyeball and take a guess, if you drink a lot of loose leaf tea it's not that hard to guesstimate it. To me it has a light flowe...

Jun. 20th, 2017

I thought this was an above-average white peony or bai mu dan.

Dry leaf smells different from any other White Peony tea I've tried, notes of candied citrus peel, a sort of bittersweet smell, a slight pungency, almost hinting at camphor. I'm intrigued, and eager to try this to see what kind of cup this leaf produces...

Jun. 14th, 2017

The first few attempts at making this tea didn't turn out good at all, kind of sour and unpleasant. It is the first white tea I try, so it might be because of that. I decided just now to actually have a look at the instructions on the box instead of making it like a green tea. I was surprised to see it recommend a 5-mi...

60 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 29th, 2017

I think I let this steep a little too long, or perhaps the barista used too hot of water, because there was a light almost-bitterness to this tea for me. It's not bad, but I have a hard time finding white teas that I really like. Also, I think I felt a slight tickle or ache at the back of my throat in response to this ...

Jan. 23rd, 2017

This tea exhibits a pure, delicate flavor -- essentially what every white tea is described as by the company that sells it. It has no bitterness and a smooth flavor. When in the mood for a straightforward, pure tea that isn't grassy, this is a nice choice.

To prepare this tea, I used the Chinese method I was shown a...

Jan. 9th, 2017

I tried this together with Upton's ZW42. I actually liked this one a lot, and not the other.

Brews up a dark, full-bodied cup that, like the other compressed white tea cake, is rather bitter. I find the bitterness more blunt though, whereas ZW42 has a sharp bitterness.

The aroma is strange and hard to describe....

Jan. 9th, 2017

This was the first of two compressed white tea cakes from Upton that I sampled. It was interesting but I'm not sure I'd want to drink this tea regularly. This was a strong tea, unpleasantly sharp but also thin-bodied, and I think I may have brewed it too strongly, wanting a fuller-bodied tea, but by the time I had fi...

I picked this up at a Whole Foods in Portland and it is an instant favorite!

The aroma is delightful, this tea is why air freshener and candle companies sell fragrances called "White Peony"

This tea has a fabulous light floral flavor with a mild honeysuckle sweetness. I like to give it a nice long steep to draw o...

This tea came from an estate sale (good places to find teas you haven't tried before, really cheap!), in its originally wrapped box.

You know, it's pathetic what some of these highly paid marketing consultants can concoct. I reviewed a loose-leaf Basilur floral tea whose packaging blatantly pandered to romantical...

If you like white teas (so pale - must steep longer.) this is a safe choice and has not only a light grassy note but I got "flowers" - or maybe even honey if that's not reaching too far.

I let it steep forever - over 5 minutes and it was still so pale, but it is, after all, a white tea.

Rich in antioxidants. Lik...

I am a huge fan of silver needle tea, but this one was sadly disappointing. The aroma of the dry leaves is wonderfully sweet and floral. The aroma of the steeped tea, however, is almost nonexistent. The taste of the tea is as expected for a silver needle. There are notes of flowers, sweet grass, and honey. However, I f...
