Tea sample provided by Teavivre for review
I generally like Bai Mu Dan, so this tea didn’t have to try hard to please me. If you’ve never had “plain” white tea before, I highly recommend trying it out at some point (from your retailer of choice obviously). My experience with flavoured white tea and this regular stuff is different. I like both, but Bai Mu Dan has a lovely spring greens feel to it.
Tonight I made 4 quick steeps, which all generally had nice notes of cantaloupe, fresh greens, pepper, honey, tea “fuzzyness”. The last steep was my favourite, and hubby enjoyed sipping alongside me.
Next time I’ll try a longer steep in a bigger tea vessel.
100ml gaiwan, one pouch (5g? 2tsp?), 4 steeps (45s +15s resteep)
