Taster’s Review:

I’ve had white tea pearls a couple of times in the past, but it’s been a while, so I was excited to see these Zhejiang White Pearls featured in this month’s Steepster Select Box!  And these pearls are amazing!

The size of these pearls are smaller than I remember the white tea pearls that I’ve had in the past being.  Size wise, these are similar to jasmine pearls – but they don’t smell like jasmine pearls!  They have more of a vegetal aroma.

And they certainly don’t taste like jasmine pearls, either!

The flavor is sweet and like honey!  Imagine a very thin honey!  That’s what I’m drinking right now!  It is very light and crisp.  There are very subtle notes of melon, air, earth and a light floral tone in the background.  For those of you who consider a white tea to be too delicate – you should try this one, because the flavors stand out!

Later infusions were a little earthier than the earlier infusions and a little less like thinned honey.  Still sweet and the floral notes begin to emerge.  Still a delightful tea, I think I preferred the first two infusions to the last two.  (It’s still well worth the effort to keep on infusing!)

I am thrilled with this month’s Steepster Select box!  And I want to take a moment to express how happy I am with the customer service from Steepster.  I encountered some issues with my account, and they worked very hard to get these issues resolved, and when the resolution took more time and effort than expected, they sent me this month’s box free of charge to make up for my troubles.  Thank you, Steepster!  If you’re on the fence about trying this amazing monthly subscription, rest assured knowing that you’re in good hands with Steepster!  They’ll take good care of you!
