This is my first time ordering a whole cake, so I’m not too great at breaking off whole chunks at a time. Best I can do right now is pick off a few leaves at a time, with the end result being a bit like maocha.

Very sweet, not very bitter/astringent. The aroma is incredible, super sweet stone fruit and honey.

Brewed 1g/15ml with boiling water

Unique and a lot of fun. The maltiness of the black with the sweetness of the white tea are balanced quite well. Reminds me a bit of Arnold Palmer but all tea?

Brewed Gongfu, but seeing in comments that I should try grandpa style as well. One of my favorite from White2tea so far.

Agree with LuckyMe, sweet, caramel, pecan all there. Part of Taiwan Sourcing intro pack, best one I’ve had from them so far.

Sweet, light, stonefruit. I usually find Taiwan Sourcing brew recommendations to be a bit on the long side, but worked out well for this one.

Was a bit confused by this one until I reread the description. Definitely on the lighter side, super approachable for a ripe.

Semi-aged raw pu-erh. Smoky and astringent at first, which gives way to bitterness and then sweetness over a few steeps. Super complex and exemplifies the strengths of gong-fu style brewing.

Got this tea with Taiwan Sourcing intro pack. If you like Ruby 18, you’ll like this. Same menthol/minty taste. I found the Taiwan Sourcing brewing recommendations didn’t match this tea very well (3/3/4 min, 5g tea/100ml water) I had better luck when I did slightly shorter infusions, especially at the beginning (1/2/2/2 min) then finished it off with 3-5 min steeps.

Preparation
Boiling 2 min, 0 sec 5 g 3 OZ / 99 ML
