I am not a lover of white teas. I prefer hearty black teas, dark and sharp with tannins. White teas tend to be too delicate for me. But Dilmah’s white Ceylon tea was an entirely different experience. It made a beautifully pale liquor that shimmered with tinges of yellow. It tasted like Ceylon tea, with the presence of tannins, but more delicate and fruity. It was the most richly flavorful white tea I have ever tasted.
Now, in the month of April, I am going to seek out and taste test more white teas. I am convinced that my white tea experience has been inadequate. It may be that I only like white Ceylon, but we shall see.

I am a writer, an educator, and a tea lover. I write about tea, mostly, but I write about other things, too. I want to see what other tea drinkers are doing out there.
