White Tea

Specifically, China Silver Needle White. Delicious. But here's the thing. A few years ago, I was told by the proprietor of a Beverly Hills tea shop that white tea is "the champgne of teas," and frequenlty sold out in his shop despite its astronomical price. I immediately took a dislike to the whole idea of white tea, and became convinced that I was superior to all those rich fools ponying up for it. But then (recently) I got a free sample, and it was delicious, and I bought some, and it's delicious, and now I don't know if I think it's delicious because I secretly am a rich fool, or if it is, in fact, all that it's said to be. I try to remind myself that it's a tea, not a test.

I still haven't been bitten by the White Tea bug. I'm too hung up on any variety of tea that introduces mint to the blend. But if it's the champagne, maybe I need to adjust my tea interests...

The blog is looking great!
