I did not expect to run into this tea on a chance outing to a tea lounge – killing time. I came back the next day to fetch it, and promptly brewed it up that night. My gaaaaaaaaah! What a splendid white tea! It had some of the strengths imparted by regular Kenyan purple tea, but in its raw form it was more akin to Ceylon whites in character. That and it lasted a whopping six infusions non gongfu style. So glad my tea karma is this good.

I haven’t been to the Tea Zone for a couple of years now… I need to return! I’ve been so caught up in my love for Townshend’s and Tea Chai Te and even Steven Smith that I’ve forgotten about this place. :(

I usually overlook it because of how trendy it’s become. (I mean, it is a tea liquor bar.) However, since my last visit, they’ve REALLY stepped up their game. Heck, their Darjeeling listing alone is worth a perusal.
