Mmmmm, white tea. I'm going to have some when I get home - once again I'm living with a posh tea fanatic :-)

It was that dodgy little tea shop in Glasgow (you know the one I mean) that introduced me to both white and nepalese teas. I am forever grateful to them.

what does white tea taste of?

Kind of like green tea. But much lighter, and slightly sweet and floral. It's really good for you, and really tasty.

Tchai Ovna. They're variable, I find - often the tea isn't that well-made. The food's nice, though.

White tea is tea that hasn't been cooked at all (white < green < oolong < black). More here. S'nice. Try some!

Try your local loose tea shop - it's much cheaper from there than a supermarket. Norwich has two or three specialist tea shops, and I can fill my tea caddy for under £2, even for the poshest of teas.

If you have a chinese food/supplies shop nearby, it's worth getting a nice teapot for brewing delicate green/white teas in, and it's much nicer to drink with a pot of hot tea on the table, filling (and refilling) little tea bowls like this one in the photo. Keeps the tea hot for longer, and you can drink more of it! My teapot + four bowls was about £6.
