I was quite concerned that the packet didn’t say what type of white tea this was, suggesting it was a blend of broken leaf from random gardens, and the taste and appearance suggested this was exactly what it was. It didn’t do it for me – too strong, none of the delicate flavours that I love white tea for (melon, fruit, sweetness) just a dark liquid with a slightly bitter aftertaste.
2 Tasting Notes
This is probably the best green tea that I’ve ever tried, I hadn’t been able to find a decent example of this since I left Shanghai where I used to live. It is hand pressed on a hot wok to give it a gorgeous nutty complexity, with the vegetal strength of green tea coming through. Refreshing, complex and wholly satisfying, I’d recommend it to anyone!
