Default Ceylon Silver Tip

Everytime I go to a college town I can expect to find a tea shoppe. I
ended up at a bike jamboree called Tour De Fat. This one carried a
couple of teas I dont have. Ill report on the others later. It looks
like an oolong with white tip. I classify Ceylon as robust teas.
Harsh on the tongue and throat. This one was very gentle. The first
cup reminded you of a white tea. The taste sneaks up on you. I
enjoyed the second cup especially. The taste different than the
first. I dont notice the estate if the tin said so. After I got the
time and temperature lecture from the proprietor I said I drink tea
when it is ready. Oh yeah he said thats the way I make it at home.

PS A good bike will come in under 10kg. This tea shoppe didnt have a
gram scale. I usually order a 100g.
