Default white tea recommendation?

Hi,

I'm looking for a white tea, something relatively affordable but with
a decent taste (the eternal quest...) and from an online vendor. I'd
be grateful for any recommendations.

Many thanks,

Sally

Hi-
I am the founder of Inko's White Tea (not that that means anything lol). I like
Adagio.xom for my personal white-tea selection.

I am in no way affiliated with them.

Longevity Eyebrow King from Funalliance. Good looking leaf and cheap
too.
It's a neat tea because it's quite sensitive to brewing parameters,
but rarely produces a bad cup. Different mixes of heat and steep time
produce a variety of flavours from sweet and floral to spicy and
baked-goods like. Just keep the temps below boiling.

Cheers,

Cameron

I had a white tea only once....it was incredibly bitter and a little
terrible at first....then a wave of sweetness would not leave my
tongue even after like 30 minutes.

I have no idea what kind it was.

I think the ZW20 First Grade Shou Mei from http://www.uptontea.com is nice.
I tried a sample of the ZW56 Organic Pai Mu Tan but didn't care for it. The
Shou Mei is smoother.

HTH.

If I recall correctly I liked that one too. It's a big strange due to its
large leaves, but good overall.

I also liked the ZW80 Yin Zhen Bai Hao Downy White Pekoe .. sweet and
interesting. Almost too delicate for my standard fare.. it's one of those
that's best out of very fine porcelain and as sort of a 'dessert' drink.. it
would be overpowered by any food but it's sweet enough that it's too cloying
for a refreshing mid-day or even afternoon tea. Not sure when to drink it.
Perhaps before bed.

I was wondering about that one but decided not to sample that which I
couldn't afford to buy on a regular basis in fear I'd get hooked .

Have you tried the ZW82 China White Snow Buds Imperial Reserve? It knocked
my socks off and laid me out under the coffee table at the same time I was
floating above the sofa. Sublime. IMO, this is what white tea is all about
although the price is starting to get up there. There was another one, the
ZW52 Special Grade Mutan that's no longer available that I also liked very
much.

Haven't tried that one but I will! I always get 10-12 samplers rather

than
any big box o' any single one, since I get bored easily and it keeps them
fresh since they're all packed in small thingies.


I always get samples of my lesser favorites for that reason. For
favorite-favorites, I get the small tin and refill from a big bag to keep
the cost down and the teas fresher than constantly dipping into a big
container.

Hi Sally,
Even I am a lover of white tea & I get it online from Halmari tea. Their silver needles white tea is simply delicious, I am sure you will like it too. The price is also very reasonable and will not pinch your pocket much. The delivery is also quite fast.
Website link - https://www.halmaritea.co.uk/teas/
Hope this helps you
Regards
