Hard to rate this one; I think I might like it more if I tried it more often. I just have a sample of it, with probably one more multi-steep serving left.
The first steeping I haven’t liked so far (both times I’ve brewed it), being that the flavor each time was mostly pan-fried or stir-fry flavored. But with the 2nd and 3rd steepings, it really took on a nice sweet, almost umami-like flavor. I was recommended this white tea out of the others to try at the store because it is rolled up more like an oolong and therefor has more flavor that traditional white teas. I don’t have any other loose white tea experience to compare this to, so I wouldn’t know, but it does seem to have plenty of flavor.
This has some similarities to the pi lo chun and long jing that I’ve tried recently, but is definitely unique. I don’t think I’d buy a whole 1-2 oz bag of this, since there isn’t enough time to enjoy everything good in this world (ie, there are other teas I’d rather drink), but I do like it.
If I were rating teas just by name, this would get 2 thumbs up from me, as it SOUNDS like the coolest tea ever. Well no, if a tea was named “Trogdor the Dragonator Long Jing” or something like that, that would be even cooler.
