13 Tasting Notes
I’m a fan.
I understand that white tea is supposed to be a delicate tea but personally, I infuse mine with a little more than suggested and for a little longer than usual. I’d say maybe two teaspoons per 8 oz. and I brew it for 5 minutes, sometimes longer.
What I end up with is a strong, flavorful, deep yellow liquor that has become one of my favorites to drink at any time. Now, personally, I don’t think this tea is one that I would say is the go-to for getting a person into tea – it’s good but in its own way. Seems to have a bit of caffeine and a good amount of theanine. Really keeps me awake and focused but not jittery. And it’s organic which is always a plus in my mind. If this were a sencha, I’d say stick to the rules as far as time and amount are concerned but give it a go. Add a little more leaf and a little more time and you’ll have quite a good cup.
My personal favorite mix is a lot of this tea with mate and a little bit of honey. Gets my morning off to a good start!
