Thumbs up!"This tea has the soft tones of flowers, and strawberries, all wrapped in mild vegetable flavors, like the slight aftertaste of broccoli soup, or asparagus before the aftertaste."

teagchinafancywhite.jpgSome days, don't you just feel like everyone you work for has been replaced with evil robots, who hate chocolate, and want to destroy all that is your well being? Maybe its just me, or maybe it was just one of "those" days. Just one of those driving around, and getting nowhere, knock down, drag out, days. I needed mellow, not "I"m hammered and wearing assorted non-hats as hats!" mellow, but rather a more relaxed Blind Mellon brand of mellow.

This tea, like all white teas, embodies mellow, sometimes far too much mellowy-goodness to be born by mere mortal lips, but still a good and fine mellow. One thing you're going to hate about this tea is that it won't explode on your lips or tongue tip, rather it wraps your tongue in a soft bath of the warm mineral content of your water, before slipping behind you like a silken lover. If your water isn't quite up to snuff you should forgo this tea, or find a better water source. All that aside, this tea has the soft tones of flowers, and strawberries, all wrapped in mild vegetable flavors, like the slight aftertaste of broccoli soup, or asparagus before the aftertaste.

Love it or hate it the new wave of white teas are definitely something to try at least once. There's nothing quite like watching the leaves of these lightly processed beauties through the water. It reminds me of leaf litter at the bottom of a clear puddle on a cool day, cool days being the best sort for someone who grew up in Southern California. Live, laugh, steep, enjoy.
