From Art of Tea

These white tea buds are hand harvested deep in the forest of Fujian Mountains. The process begins with nature first blanketing these rare and unique buds in morning dew before they are carefully hand picked and then hot air dried. These wild tea buds are thick and slightly spiraled in a longitudinal direction with an uninhibited white and golden down surface.
The steeped infusion reveals a light caramel color with flavor notes of acorn squash, banana bread and honeydew melon. This tea can be steeped multiple times and is a must for the most seasoned tea aficionado.

Water Temperature: 195 F degrees Time: 3 min.
Ingredients: Loose Leaf Wild White Tea Buds
Special Amount Recommended: 3 grms per 8oz of water.
*Please note there is a very limited supply of this extremely rare hand harvested tea.

Sipdown, 181.

Man, I have never suffered from seasonal allergies until I moved here. Which is so weird because I grew up not too far away, so I should be immune to these plants. I’m going to blame the non-native sakura cherry trees planted around here; I discovered an allergy to cherry blossoms last year around this time in Beijing, and I certainly didn’t grow up with those. Guess I should never live in DC.

I steeped this at a slightly cooler temp than last time because I had a touch of astringency then. I think that took care of it. This tea really has a pretty unique flavor, and while squash seems to be part of it I’m not sure it really captures the whole thing. But it’s also hard to put my finger on what is going on here. I guess it is kind of like a squash with butter and honey. Ooh, maybe delicata squash? With the skin on of course, so you get more of those vegetal notes. Pretty interesting tea!

Yum, delicata squash :)

Pollen is supposed to be extra bad this year! My allergies have been crazy, too.

It’s so weird for me because I’ve never had allergies before! My immune system is failing me. :P

It’s weird for me because one thing I always knew about myself was that I’m not allergic to anything. My immune system is letting me down! :P

Thank you for the sample GiggleGoddess

I’m now discovering that white teas can have quite a range of flavor profiles. This one is quite nice, but not my favorite. It is similar to White Symphony from Adagio, having obvious hay and barley notes. I like this one better than White Symphony though as that one took the horse-food flavors a bit too far. This one also has a sweeter aroma (like honey), but it doesn’t come out in the flavor much.

Woohoo! So I’m the first to actually review this one it seems:)

This tea actually tastes pretty good. The dry leaves smell warm and woody. Once brewed it smells woody as well. It tastes like some kind of nut…it reminds me of autumn. I can’t put my finger on the flavor…it’s not banana bread or the melon…perhaps it’s the acorn squash? Yes…I say it’s definitely a squash flavor profile on this first steeping…thank goodness I like squash lol! It’s very unique and comforting. I’ll update with follow up steepings.
