23 Tasting Notes
A most lovely addiction. Only issue with this tea is – I hope I get my stock replenished when it runs out ! :-) very flavourful, sweet and I love its golden yellow liquor !
The first time I tried it ( after having tried the legendary Chinese white teas like Silver Needle), it didn’t somehow live up to my first impression ! Then, I tried steeping it for 2 1/2 minutes instead of the usual 3 for most white teas and it made a difference ! I could find the subtle and sweet aroma that I am now accustomed to in most of my favourite white teas and I am glad that one of them is Korakundah – the first white tea I have ever had ( just a month ago !)
This is the Bai Mu Dan that I sourced from Chado Tea house – hear in Mumbai. The tea leaf is similar to the Bai Mu Dan my wife bought from Shanghai ( they look slightly more white) – and the taste is almost as good too :-) subtle, sweet.
Am convinced this is my all time favourite so far ! Love its sweet flavour and subtle aroma. Very close favourite is the Ceylon Golden Tips white tea ! :-)
Post lunch, sipping this divine, simple fragrant and subtle white tea – while working on the book I am writing ( listening to some Jazz ! Wynton Kelly trio) – ain’t this what life is all about ? :-)
nice, pleasant and mild green tea with the distinct fragrance of the Jasmine flower. Also love the way the tea leaves are presented – three pellets ( the three brothers !) integrated with the jasmine flower !
I was a bit vary about trying a Pu-erh tea – thinking maybe it might be too strong for me. But I found this to be quite pleasant and flavourful with the added advantage of knowing that this one is packed with health benefits ! :-)
Back to my starting point among my new but rapidly growing collection of teas – love the mild floral fragrance. very calming !
Looooove this one !! What a different fragrance ! Can’t believe this is caffeine free ! awesome option in life !
