Silk Road gave their website a makeover and it looks like they are finally on board with the online shipping thing-before you apparently had to order over the phone! I wasn’t aware that their teas were categorized as “signature” or “limited edition”. Silly me, assuming everything is permanent.
Mmm, This is a delicate, dainty little tea. The dry leaves look like tightly curled up bits of thread. The aroma is almost unnoticeable when dry but it becomes characteristically floral when damp. The notes are simple, crisp and floral, with a honey sweet finish. This contains a surprising amount of flavour. There is something that almost seems “spiced” and musky about its aroma and finish but it’s too subtle for me to put my finger on.
I’m drinking this using my little glass gongfu pot… white tea and floral flavours can be so subtle yet potent! They make the world seem like it’s slowing down. I could just sit here and drift off with this (should be studying). Too bad this tea wasn’t cheaper.
