First sample from the Adagio white sampler pack. The dry leaves smell distinctly of timothy hay. The leaves are darker than I was expecting, but having very little experience with white teas, I’m not sure what my expectations are based on exactly… Brewed, the liquor smells of honey—but a strong wildflower honey, not the stuff that comes in the squeezy bear—and is colored similar. The honey and floral notes come through prominently in the taste, with a pear-like crispness on the finish. Though the flavor is pretty delicate, this has a nice full, almost creamy mouthfeel. Highly enjoyable!
