This is my first white tea, and I am told by my very friendly tea monger… fine, my very friendly loose leaf seller, that this is a great traditional white tea. I was careful to follow steeping and temp directions as well as I could, but I had to eyeball the amount of tea. That being said:
The liquor was vanishingly clear, but the aroma was intriguing. Again this may be my wild imagination, but it had an almost animal smell to it, like a small musky rabbit. Anyway, it wasn’t a strong smell, and it wasn’t unpleasant. It’s hard for me to describe the flavor, and I will attempt it after a few more tries through the week. That being said it’s a good flavor! As it cooled in the cup it became downright sweet.
Not much of a review I know, but it was a wonderful cup, and I can’t wait to enjoy steeping it for the rest of the day!
