Just trying this one out in the kyuusu, water at 70C and steeping for two and a half minutes. This is such a lovely, smooth tea, one of my very favourite greens and incrediblly easy to drink – and with that lovely honey scent. It’s worked out very well in the kyuusu, but I think I’ll play around with it a bit more and maybe use just slightly hotter water next time.

The leaves are silvery and possess the distinctive curly shape, and they brew up into a yellow-brown liquid that reminds me a lot of white peony/pai mu tan. The taste also reminds me a lot of a good loose-leaf pai mu tan. The aftertaste gets progressively more bitter as you get to the end of the pot; I found the second steeping a lot more gentle. This is a green tea that will definitely appeal to lovers of white tea.

The tea leaves are really pretty, like potpourri, and smell strongly of passionfruit. They produce a lovely yellow brew. Sadly, none of this translates into the taste. This tea had very little taste of fruit, tea or anything else. It was just a really, really dull drink. What a disappointment!

Rosie Lea Tea

Try it cold. I find most flavoured teas taste great once chilled in the fridge for a while.

Okay, so I drank some more of this. I want to like it more than I do. It’s so-so. I’m a bit disappointed with it.

Still undecided about this one. At first sip, it doesn’t seem like much. It’s mild, like all white teas, and seems less flavourful than some, but there’s something about it that kept me drinking. Nothing for it but to have another cup…

Like any green tea, brew with water around 80C (175F) rather than at boiling point to minimise bitterness. I love the honey scent and flavour, which gives it that slightly sweeter edge. It’s very smooth to drink. A favourite green tea.
