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...

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.

Cup at home, made from a sachet included in the tea company's Advent Tea Calendar (2020) and containing a mixture of leaves of white tea and lemongrass, as well as elderflower and pieces of dried blueberries - all of them organic and sprinkled with flavouring.

White Ayurvedic Chai from Adagio Teas

Style: White Tea – Region: Blend

76 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 24th, 2020

Prep: 205F, 5min, 4tsp for 16oz (as per instructions but lowered 212 to 205).

When Teavana made this variety, it was one of the first teas that I truly loved. This is meant to be a replacement for their discontinued line, I think.

Aroma: The nose really shows off the spice of the tea with some pungent cinnamon....

Dec. 21st, 2020

Prep: 175F, 3 minutes, 2 heaping teaspoons in 16oz

Appearance: Transparent pink, quite bright.

Aroma: There is a mild mix of strawberry and raspberry. I keep searching for the basil notes but I can’t find them.

Flavor: The white tea base is very mild and allows a delicate strawberry flavor to take the stage...

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...

Upton Vietnamese White Tea from Upton Tea Imports

50 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 1/5
Oct. 1st, 2020

This expensive white tea from Vietnam offers little that is new imo. It is very mild, with a pleasant white peach taste. The aroma is its most impressive feature, and it made me think of fruit salad, flowers, and woods. The second infusion was more flavorful than the first. A white tea enthusiast might find somethi...

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

Style: White Tea – Region: China

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...

41 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 2/5
Feb. 10th, 2020

This was my first Darjeeling white tea, and it's about as impressive as sitting through an hour-long staff meeting with a well-advertised, nicely dressed, but ultimately monotonic guest speaker droning on about an uninteresting subject.

At first, I was intrigued. The best part of the experience was the dry-bag ar...

Feb. 9th, 2020

I wasn't feeling well lately. I think I may have caught the flu, which has been going around. I tried a remedy of tea and herbs that often helps me, but it wore of quickly. So, I felt the urge to try some of this white tea, because I remember something I was told by someone regarding white tea being considered medicine...

Apr. 14th, 2019

Estate sales can be an unconventional way to try new teas upon which one normally wouldn't gamble the full cost of purchase. In this case, the tea apparently has been retired, and can't be bought anymore, but was shrink-wrapped in the box (never opened) and still in fresh condition. [I got it as part of a larger grab...

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.

54 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Dec. 9th, 2018

An exorbitantly-priced tea that didn't deliver the quality I demand in this price range, and in the end, wasn't that enjoyable to drink. This is the first white tea I have ever tried that was produced in any region of northeast India other than Darjeeling. I remain open minded, but this experience was a let-down. Thin-...

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 ...

Jan. 11th, 2018

This tea is very similar to the white peony, so if you like that I'd give this a try.
The flavor is what you'd expect, somewhat fruity and sweet with this white tea aftertaste that seems consistent in every white I try. I can steep this twice and it doesn't seem like too great of a value.

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, ...

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...

I like this tea a lot. I drink it pretty much every morning. It's a dark white tea with a rich, complex flavor. Kind of tangy and not very bitter. I add cream and sugar.
