Who said white teas had to be bland?
The smell of the brew: I get lost in it, tea drunk at first sniff! Oh, I could just bathe in its holy water!
It has a round texture, feels like a cloud of pudding in my mouth!
Of course, I can’t deny the freshly cut hay, it dominates this first infusion. It’s sweet and slightly flowery. Beautiful pale yellow nectar. I’m slurping it like there’s no tomorrow, thinking my 4oz Gaiwan is way too small, I’d rather have a gigantic pot of this! But as they say, with great patience comes great rewards!
Brings more sweet, honey like flavor with hints of citrus and melon in the background. I can see this being an excellent iced tea.
The later steeps are still sweet, but they also kick in with a peppery aftertaste, nice addition to the already complex symphony of flavors, it gives it a second life. It’s definitely very potent.
In conclusion, this is white tea with an attitude , some kind of a white boy with a James Brown swag signing «I got soul!!»
