2 tasting notes

This is an aged white tea from Mei Leaf, aka china life. I’m new to white teas, but the more I try them, the more I like them. I used five grams of tea in a 100ml gaiwan, and heated the water to 205 degrees. I started with flash steepings, and increased the time after about six of them. I drank ten steepings from the tea, and could have gone further. I think it would be a good one to make iced tea with using the steeped leaves. I can’t put how the tea tasted into words, but it was very smooth. Not bitter at all, and tasted really good. This tea has increased my desire to explore white teas.

I believe this is the first wet stored raw I’ve had, and I just discovered I’m a big fan. I’ve never tasted a tea like this. I loved it. I wasn’t taking notes since I’ve never left a tasting note before, but I just ordered 500 grams of it, and will leave my first complete tasting of a tea the next time I have it.
