630 Tasting Notes
The use of stevia in this one is unfortunate as I found the other flavours in here to be quite nice. I am sensitive to stevia and it has a anesthetic-type freezing effect on my throat. The taste of the apple on the aftertaste is okay.
Flavors: Apple, Sweet
The aroma of this tea brewing had a strong smoked salmon aroma with the sweetness of the white was able to come through.
The smoked salmon note comes through strongly but the white tea taste is robust enough to come through on its own as well. The tea has both sweet and savoury notes which are typically quite difficult to balance. Mouthfeel is medium. Sweetness is soft and dull on the sip but had a sharper edge at the back of the throat.
Flavors: Smoked, Sweet
The aroma of the dry leaf was slightly fruity and smoky.
The brewing leaves had aromas of sweet smokey salmon and vegetal.
The brewed tea has a very thick mouthfeel. There is a very strong characteristic white tea flavour with the smokey salmon note blooming into the aftertaste. I find it quite unique to have a white tea with a strong savoury note. Very faint sweetness with some sawdust woody notes.
Flavors: Fishy, Sawdust, Smoked, Sweet
Spring 2014 tea
The brewed tea has an incredible aroma of fresh flowers (lilac or geranium). There is also a note of creaminess in the scent. Very thick mouthfeel with strong floral notes (translated well from the aroma of the tea). Warm spice note- almost spicy but I could liken it to sweet nutmeg. I am utterly blown away by the complex flavours in this one- hard to believe it is not flavoured!
Thank you to Sil for the sample!
