Quick Notes Thanks to Bonnie for sharing with me :)

Dry – lighty vegetal, sweet, somewhat nutty/buttery.
Wet – Vegetal, snow peas/sweet peas, nutty, buttery.
Liquor – light/pale green.

1st 20secs – lightly sweet and refreshing with buttery and creaminess up front. As it washes down the vegetal notes become more apparent but the creaminess. The after is clean and slowly turns sweet and vegetal.

2nd 15secs – Creamy, buttery, sweet and vegetal notes up front. As it washes down, it is smooth and sweeter with snow pea notes and sugary sweetness that lightly lingers in the aftertaste.

3rd 20secs – Creamy, buttery and vegetal with some sweetness up front. As it washes down, it is more vegetal and slightly savory that wears a slight, pleasant astringency. The aftertaste is vegetal, nutty and sweet.

4th 40secs – Lightly creamy, smooth, sweet with vegetal hints up front. As it washes down, it is more vegetal and slightly savory that turns sweet again; there some astringency present.

5th 1min – Cleaner, sweeter with light creamy and vegetal notes up front. As it washes down, it is slightly creamier with faint vegetal notes that turn sweeter.

Final Notes
Amazing white tea, I like how it is creamy and smooth. Once again I love whites/greens to reset the taste buds, I feel like ‘back to basics’ and you can’t EVER have too much ‘basic’(training, learning and tea).

This is one of the few teas that almost instantly gives me a nice buzz. Good taste and good feeling!

I liked that it was creamy, it had some depth to it. It isn’t completely unusual in white tea but not very common.

Bio

Discovered tea a few years ago and I’ve been exploring ever since. I’m looking forward to keep learning and enjoy tea as I do. Keep learning, those who “know” stop learning and become irrelevant to the world.

I’m adding the scale because I noted that we all use the same system but it doesn’t mean the same to all.(I rate the tea not by how much I ‘like it’ only; there are flavors/scents I don’t like but they are quality and are how they are supposed to be and I rate them as such).

90 – 100: AMAZING. This the tea I feel you should drop whatever you are doing and just enjoy.

80-89: Great tea that I would recommend because they are above ‘average’ tea, they usually posses that ‘something’ extra that separates them from the rest.

70-79: An OK tea, still good quality, taste and smell. For me usually the tea that I have at work for everyday use but I can still appreciate and get me going through my day.

60-69: Average nothing special and quality is not high. The tea you make and don’t worry about the EXACT time of steep because you just want tea.

30-59: The tea you should probably avoid, the tea that you can mostly use for iced tea and ‘hide’ what you don’t like.

1-29: Caveat emptor! I feel sorry for my enemies when they drink this tea. :P
