what an amazing earthy flavour ! Mate ( from the south american yerba mate tea), cocoa beans, rooibos ( the south african herbal tea), sunflower etc. make this a very healthy and interesting drink ! lovely find ! :-)

Still loving this rare tea ! Maybe I should not get too used to it :-) As a novice, I am realising the art is in getting the brew to the right temperature to truly enjoy the magnificence of this tea !

Definitely one of my favourites now ! Its grown on me and I love it as much as the Silver Needle ! :-) Finding it to be subtle and even more aromatic ! ( but then I am a novice !)

If I had tasted this tea as the very first white tea in life, I may have fallen in love with it ! But having this after falling in love with the sweeter and more mellow Chinese Silver Needle and White Peony, I find this a bit harsh and reminiscent of my “un educated green tea drinking days” !

Lovely tea ! Went out of way to order this into India – you don’t get it here ! Worth the effort ! :-) Mellow, Sweet, Mild aroma – just the way a white tea should be for me !

When I saw the colour of the tea liquor ( golden yellow vs the usual subdued yellow of most premium white teas), I was not so sure I was going to enjoy this one ! Then I took a full sip – and I tasted flavour, character and its sweetness ! I couldn’t relate to its high price till this sip and many more sips followed – followed by a purchase ! I am in love :-)

This was the very first White tea that I ever had consciously ( knowing that it was white tea). I promptly went and procured some white teas for home ( authentic chinese like silver needle, etc.) Now, in contrast, I find the Korakundah ( from Nilgiri, India), not as subtle as the chinese ones – but still pleasant and enjoyable !
