I found out about this Washington outfit in ‘09, but didn’t look for the website until a year later. The white tea finally became available for online order this (or last?) month. I instantly picked up some. Finding good “A-MURR-ican” tea had become somewhat of a sub-hobby. I was a little turned off by the dry appearance. They looked like normal leaves with a wildernessy smell. Nothing special.
That all changed in taste, however. This is one hearty and buttery white tea. Best obscure comparison I can make is to an Oothu estate Indian white tea; same type of bold, fruity and creamy characteristics. It also had a bit in common with Milk Oolong by way of a Bai Mu Dan and lasted for nearly four infusions. Quite frankly, I’ve had nothing like it. But I DID like it. A lot.
