This is a good “everyday,” non-fussy white tea. It produces a medium yellow liquor with woodsy, nutty, yet slightly floral, notes. Very smooth and easy to drink. Something about it reminds me of hay or straw, although that’s not to say it tastes like straw. It doesn’t have the delicate sweetness of some higher grades of white tea, but sometimes, that’s not what you’re after. This one is easy to brew, forgiving of oversteeping, and tastes great iced as well, or mixed with other teas.

Bio

I like strong, robust flavors. My current favorites include strong black teas (Keemuns, Yunnan teas and Assams, for example), flavored blacks such as Harney’s Paris, oolongs of any kind, and gyokuros. I like Rooibos and honeybush teas as well, and other herbal blends to help me relax in the evening.

I am willing to try just about anything, but I am not particularly fond of jasmine tea, very fruity or heavily flavored blends, anything with pineapple; and I know this is practically heresy, but I don’t like Darjeelings.
