Taster’s Review:

This white tea really took me by surprise!  Usually when I brew a white tea, I expect it to be gentle and of subtle taste.  Delicate.  But this has a much stronger flavor than I expected!  Yes, this 2012 Fu Ding Bai Cha Chinese White tea from China Cha Dao has a softer flavor than say, a Yunnan Black tea … but for a white tea – this tea boasts a whole lot of taste!

The flavor is vegetative, but not in the same way a green tea tastes vegetative.  This is more like a crisp, light taste that reminds me of freshly cut hay … hay that isn’t quite dried through, still has a bit of that fresh, green-ness to it.  There is also a taste that evokes thoughts of dew drops on new spring leaves.  It has that kind of freshness to it.

There is a mild nutty flavor to this as well as a creamy note that is really quite enticing … it keeps me sipping.  The tea is very beautifully complex … the kind of tea that you want to steep on a lazy afternoon when you just want to relax and contemplate the beauty of tea.  (And when do you NOT want to do that?  Sure, we don’t always have TIME to do that, but I think we always want to, don’t we?)  It is a nice tea with which to unwind, and it is gently restorative.

A really nice tea – the first that I’ve tried from this company.  If this is any indication of how wonderful the teas from this company are going to be, I’m really looking forward to tasting more!


Co-Founder/Co-Creator of SororiTea Sisters, Mad Tea Artist at 52Teas
Anne (aka the Mad Tea Artist) has celebrated her 29th birthday for many years now. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her hubby and her youngest daughter. Her oldest daughter is married and has bestowed Anne with the proud title of "Gramma" and her grandson is about the cutest boy you ever did see.

Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!

Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
