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.
