Testing this tea out to see if it has held up since my last note about it! I remember really loving this tea, and it opening my eyes in regards to the beauty of Nepalese teas. In terms of April’s monthly sipdown challenge, I suppose I could count this as my oldest white tea if I’m going by purchase date, but I think I have an aged white tea that is much older, at least chronologically.

Dry leaf still had an enticingly sweet aroma, but a lil subdued. This caused me to be a little disappointed in anticipation of a weak brew, but nay! the tea was as golden delicious as I remember. The warm summer hay is still there, notes of malt and honey too. The melon has developed into something deeper, but just as lush… papaya perhaps? The flavor notes have not budged an inch in terms of strength. I’m so relieved! I enjoyed each subsequent steep.

Once this one is gone, I’ll have to be on the hunt for another white tea from Nepal. What a treat!

Flavors: Hay, Honey, Malty, Papaya
