Mmm. I was starting to think that I just didn’t like white tea, but this is lovely.
The dry leaf smells a bit like raisins. It brews to a very, very light yellow (definitely not canary yellow, which is too bad, because that would have been exciting!). The aroma of the tea is similar to the dry leaf, but a bit sweeter. Two things stand out to me in the taste — honey and chestnuts. The honey is pretty hard to miss. It comes out most in the aftertaste, a sort of mild sweetness. I probably would have called the main taste walnut rather than chestnut, but that may be because I eat more walnuts than chestnuts, so that’s what comes to mind first. Either way, it’s nutty-sweet and yummy. It’s not a tea I would ever drink during the day, but it’s nice to have just before bed, when I’m reading and just want something warm to sip.
