Part 3/3 of my white tea sampler from Tao of Tea purchased on Amazon.com.
I have been steeping this in the gaiwan with short infusions with around 180 F water. The leaves are quite beautiful, long and fuzzy with a celadon green type of color.
My infusions are all coming out the same, a slightly milky vegetal flavor with a tiny bit of sweetness. Probably my least favorite of the three I purchased and ultimately kind of boring to me. Still it is pleasant enough and I will probably end up blending with something else like licorice root or rose petals. I haven’t found a silver needle yet I’m really wild about – anyone have a good recommendation?
