Finally! I tea I didn’t have to newly add? Who added it? OF COURSE EASTTEAGUY BECAUSE WE HAVE NEARLY THE SAME TEAS! Lol

I edited out some ranting. Essentially, Covid cases are up in my town, and we are in a weird position for the future since so many kids are behind and going through some tough stuff. Kinda put some glum on my birthday, and I am looking at what I can control over what I can’t.

I was extremely excited What-Cha offered some white Qing Xin. I’ve enjoyed some of the white tea I’ve had from Taiwan, but some of them can be a little bit too strong for me, especially if they are the usually black used variatals. Wang Family tea had two selections of the white of this varietal that were fairly limited, and now What-Cha has one. The leaves are HUGE, and vibrant with different bright shades of green, white, yellow, brown, red, and silver. The leaves smell like sourdough bread and honeysuckles.

Brewing it up western, Honeysuckle,Freshly Cut Grass, Bready Sourdough,Dry Pear, Mango, and lemon are the notes, getting a little bit fruitier as it cools down. Really enjoying this one. Will be writing more in the next few days to come. As of now and for the last two days, it kinda lost some lustre. I will have to be more careful since these are fairly delicate.
