Hope you succeed with your 'mission,' Chip!
It is starting to look like Mission Impossible for today.
I truly find a good white tea to be a most enjoyable tea. I do not however roll out of bed thinking, oh good, time for white tea. A fine Yin Zhen is sooo sublime though. I usually brew it in a glass so I can enjoy the leaf. I find Bai Mudan or White Peony can pack a pretty good punch compared to Yin Zhen. They are both very good but very different.
It seems the biggest mistake people make with white tea is...they use way too little leaf. White tea leaf is very fluffy, almost like feathers. In order to get 3-5 grams of leaf needed to make a good cup, you have to use sometimes more than 2 tablespoons.
I am having my breakthrough Japanese tea, Fukamushi Superior. This sencha put me into the Japanese tea fast lane around 2 years ago. I never had a sencha like this previously...packed full of flavor and intensity. Ever since opening the first bag of this stuff, sencha has dominated my previously predominantly Chinese tea diet.
