Light, but tasty

I have heard about white tea before from a Chinese friend but never had one, he has been telling me about it. I generally prefer light raw tea than mixed tea. It's truly one of the best teas I have had (I drink a lot of green teas, I think I will drink more white tea). Light, but tasty.

I enjoy this tea with individual packs

I'm from Toronto but I have to say that I have never had white tea before, I like to drink matcha here. I drink a lot of tea, really a lot. I have been looking for Chinese tea around here but I can only find in those cheap Chinese shops, and I don't really want to buy it form there. I'm so happy that they're getting the tea directly from the source in China and put it in the individual packs! They read my mind!

WONDERFUL

I really like this chinese tea. I have factored it into my budget. It has the right balance for me because I don't drink tea with sugar or milk at all. Moonlight white doesn't need any help, it truly stands on it's own for flavor and taste.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

I love the fact that white teas are high in antioxidants. I usually have green tea because it's light and refreshing. I drink greeen tea several times a week. But after trying the white tea sample that I received, somehow I feel that it's even lighter! I will bring it to my meditation session next week, and planning to introduce it to my batch mates! Think they will like it!

Try it!

Just tried for the first time and it's love at first taste. Lol. Perfect for after work or as an evening enjoyment, I usually steep the tea according to the directions and will try to steep it a little longer (I love stronger flavour).Try it!
