From white2tea

Our Saturday Mass is a blend of our small batch shu Puer and chenpi (Mandarin orange skin). Each mini is roughly 7 grams, with 7 minis in each stack.

This blend focuses on the thicker, heavy aspects of shu Puer and an aged orange skin that offers a darker medicinal citrus aroma. The tea has a thick texture with a smooth, heavy body and dark flavor profile. Perfect tea for cold or wet weather. Drink now or age as you please.

When choosing size options, you can either choose a full stack or an individual mini.

I was all excited about finishing my tube of toothpaste last night because my new one is Vanilla Chai flavored (I hate minty dental care products)…and then I realized how sad my life must be if tea flavored toothpaste is this exciting for me. So I did what any reasonable tea-addict would do and fired up the kettle for a cup of chenpi tea to make me feel better about my non-existent life.

Using my Bodum The de Chine glass mug with glass filter (so proud of myself for remembering to not use a gongfu bottle and having to spend the next week or two trying to get the orange smell out of the rubber seals and plastic connector thing!) but only filling it a tiny bit above the bottom of the handle. That level seems to be enough to cover most minis but not be too watery for gongfu. Someday I’ll measure to find out exactly how much water that is.

I was a little nervous about Saturday Mass because of the description talking about it being all dark and medicinal but it smells a lot like my beloved Golden Horse stuffed tangerines to me. It smells quite orangey but the orange flavor isn’t as strong as some chenpi teas I’ve had. Not sure if there’s less peel in this one or if it’s just hiding in the leaves. The peel in this does seem darker than some others, the age maybe? I don’t know. It smells great. Kind of nice to have more of the tea flavor coming through, though I do enjoy stronger orange flavor too. It didn’t seem to last many steeps but I wasn’t exactly being careful with water amounts and steep times. Maybe I’ll try it grandpa next time.

During this pandemic (and any time really) there is absolutely nothing ‘wrong’ with being excited about mango flavored dental floss, tuberose scented soap or any other small pleasure that gives joy and/or comfort.

White Antlers: Thanks for the reassurance that I’m not a complete loser. We really do have to look for any little thing that will brighten our day a bit right now, don’t we? And I would absolutely try mango dental floss if I saw it somewhere…it sounds like a flavor CocoFloss would make :)

tea-sipper

I’d be thrilled for vanilla chai toothpaste haha. Life is also the little things. :D

White Antlers

DrowningMySorrows If they can do Cara Cara Orange, then why not mango? They need to up their floss game. : )

tea-sipper, it exists. Go to Amazon. Schmidt’s Vanilla Chai toothpaste. Cross my heart.

That toothpaste is awesome. So is their deodorant- rose vanilla and rose black pepper.

DrowningMySorrows

Tea-sipper: The one I have is the Schmidt’s that White Antlers mentioned. If you’re into weird tea flavored dental care, Lush has had a few toothpaste and mouth wash tablets over the years. I haven’t checked in a while but they used to have one with gunpowder green and an earl grey one.

Derk: I keep meaning to try the rose deo but I like their lime & bergamot one too much. I can’t stand the flavor of bergamot but I love the way it smells. Ooh! I just checked and now they have earl grey & coconut milk and jasmine tea options. Soon all my toiletries will be full of tea!

Gongfu Sipdown (1287)!

I probably should have waited and had this on Saturday, for the joke, but I was craving Chenpi and it was an easy sipdown…

The coin was a tea order freebie, but I also blind caked this one in a previous order because I do love me some chenpi shou – and I’ve had really good experiences with White2Tea’s. I’m very glad I blind caked this; it’s reeeaalllyyy thick & full bodied, but very clean and well rounded tasting at the same time. Really robust & bordering on medicinal tasting chenpi with a brothy tasting shou as thick as mud. Just bitter enough.
