I was given a box of Numi Flowering Teas for my birthday this year by a thoughtful co-worker. They are comprised of full leaves that are handsewn together and dried into compact shapes. As it steeps, the tea blossoms open into a large flower in your pot.
Today’s Flowering Tea is Starlight Rose: The delicate silver needle white tea leaves are handsewn around a tender rosebud. The soft, lucent liquor and subtle aroma of roses yields a smooth, mellow flavor illuminated by the calming benefits of white tea.
It’s a very light-colored liquor, almost peachy. The aroma is very grassy, but warm. The flavor is also light, and the rose only comes out in the finish. While not my favorite, it’s still very interesting to sip.
White tea has so little caffeine that I’m putting it into both categories, but those utter non-caf drinkers may want to abstain.

As someone that has done a fair amount of content on tea, I have a lot of mixed thoughts on the way information is passed. With tea reviews or discussing a specific tea I have struggled with the question: how to talk about an individual tea or tea in general in an interesting or useful way.. Whether you like or dislike TeaDB episodes largely depends on whether you enjoy watching two particular people drink and binter. This is fine enough and it is certainly fun for Denny & I to create, but I’ll also agree with the sentiment that it’s not necessarily the most substantive way to review a tea in depth. There’s some signal but there’s also a lot of noise. Writing about a specific tea also isn’t easy and I think is actually very difficult to execute in a way that is actually consistently interesting or useful for people. Most people just want to know if you liked or didn’t like a specific tea. Making something that piques interest beyond that is a challenge and even if you don’t like them a place like Mei Leaf has succeeded in creating content that really does engage their viewers. You also have to consider that the majority of people have not had the tea or are even unfamiliar with the basic taste profile (i.e. Denny & I describing a traditionally stored pu’erh, when the audience has never had one).. Here are some phrases I dislike and hear frequently enough that I find them unhelpful and sometimes even counter-productive.
