This was another sample I got when Cavocorax was kind enough to share shipping costs on an order.

Sniffing the dry leaves, I wasn’t convinced this would be any good. After I added the water, it smelled really sharp, almost acidic, and I wasn’t sure about that, either.

Thankfully, after a 3 minute steep, this is a pretty good smelling white tea. The flavour isn’t very strong, but the tea is sweet and a little fruity. It’s more subtle-yet-complex than the white tea I picked up at Whole Foods, yet I prefer Butiki’s offering to this one.

I mostly drink black tea.

Also: A map of tea places in Vancouver. I’ve been to some of them, but not a lot. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
