Recent Tasting Notes
This tea produces a beautiful bright gold liquor. The steeped aroma isn’t powerful but it is heavy and reminds me of boiled cabbage or brussels sprouts, but without the sweetness.
This tea is extremely astringent for a white tea. The ‘singe’ from the brew lasts a very long time as well. This overbearing astringency makes it difficult to capture a flavor profile.
I didn’t particularly enjoy this tea. Without a flavor profile to keep my palate entertained all that was there was the sting from the astringency so potent in this tea. While the brewed aroma was pleasant, the palate profile was not.
I cannot recommend this tea to anyone at this time. Perhaps I received a low quality batch. When I travel to China I will seek out this brand to give it one more shot.
