I will be the first to admit that I am not an expert when it comes to reviewing white teas. I simply haven't explored this type of tea enough to really get into the nitty-gritty details of white tea. However, based on my experience, I do know that those white teas that I have liked most are those that offer nutty and melon-y flavors. Today was my lucky day, as White August's Silver Threads white tea offers both of those flavors, with a few other notes thrown in for good measure. As with most white teas, the key to proper preparation of this offering is to avoid using water that is too hot. I allowed water to just start steaming then poured it over my leaves for about two and a half minutes. The tea is a light yellowish-tan color. When taken hot, the a surprisingly vegetal flavor trumps all other flavors, although there are other flavors that are present, just less obvious. I found the tea to be most enjoyable when it cools to room temperature, as all of the various flavors seem to be in better balance and the strong vegetal notes are much subdued. At room temperature, I tasted a wonderfully sweet melon flavor balanced with a mild nuttiness and, what I found to be the most pleasant flavor: a cereal-like grainy flavor, perhaps not too far from Rice Krispies cereal. While my impressions of this tea as a hot drink were fair, I give it rave reviews when served at room temperature or over ice. This is a tea I would certainly drink again. Yum.
