Chris_s gave me a sample sized package of this as a gift. I really appreciate getting to try it since it sells for $30/2 oz. It’s like gold. And it’s color is also like gold; a light gold anyway. This is a very light white tea. When i first took a sip, I didn’t taste anything. And then, wait for it… wait for it… there. The flavors are present in the aftertaste. And it has a really long finish (a good 20-30 seconds). The flavors mutate as you sit through the finish. In the aftertaste, I taste peaches and something almost floral. I don’t get the orange that others mentioned except maybe at the way end.
I wasn’t sure I used enough tea because it came out so light. Then I stuck the tea leaves back in the water for another minute and that really made a huge difference. So, go with 4 min.
This tea is so delicate that I didn’t add any sweetener to it, because I am pretty sure it would overwhelm it. It doesn’t need it (and I add sweetener to pretty much everything).
Update – So interesting… Now that the tea is cooled to the point where it is just warm, I am getting the citrusy orange flavor.
