216 Tasting Notes
Compared to teavivre’s golden tipped version, the dry leaf of this is larger and darker with a bit of gold. Scent is slightly less fragrant but still lovely.
Brews a darker cup and tastes more of chocolate and less potato, so perhaps a wee bit less delicate in taste as compared to the golden tip. Very delicious!!
I am glad I bought this and have gone through my bag quickly. I will certainly restock.
Delicious peach fragrance, with a lovely fruity taste to match. Delicate, soft and smooth without any bitterness.
This was served to me a few days ago at a family gathering, and I must say that I didn’t expect such a lovely and delicate taste and enjoyed the cup very much.
Unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to see the ‘bloomed’ tea in the pot though.
Thank you to Angel at Teavivre for the sample.
Rinse x 2. Approx. 4g/3oz x 15 sec/steeps.
Wet leaf has the slightest hint of compost type scent initially but this disappears and switches to fruity apricot after the third cup.
First cup after the rinses tastes tart and cooling, but after that the taste becomes sweet and fruity with apricot and grape-like notes. Very pleasant hints of bitterness sort of like the taste of chewing on the seeds from grapes.
Light and refreshing, but also seems to have a peppery warming sensation awhile after drinking. Soft and lovely, with still more steeping to do.
Gorgeous leaf with sweet aroma of melon and hay.
Tastes of fresh cucumber, melon and a bit of grain/hay – very refreshing without any bitterness, and is delicious when cool as well.
This is a very lovely tea and I am pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it.
Thank you to Angel at teavivre for this sample, especially nice since I haven’t had a lot of white teas.
I haven’t had this in awhile and it was top of my list when I placed a recent teavivre order, and the first cup I made when my order arrived.
This is even better than I remembered! Very fragrant like clover and honey, and so flavorful with delicate, sweet pastry-like notes. Perfect and delicious!
This is one of my favorite teas and I’m happy to have it in my cupboard again.
This was a sample sent with my whispering pines order.
I knew this was a blend of two teas but couldn’t recall which ones when I made it. Right after the first sip, I knew there was the Ailaoshan black, but then also could detect keemun. Ah, delicious!
I might even prefer this blend to the straight ailaoshan – it has more grain and chocolate malt notes which meld with the fruitiness so beautifully.
A fancy and gentle breakfast tea, which would also be good anytime of day.
