From DAVIDsTEA

Truly special

This extraordinary green tea is one of China’s finest. It is hand-rolled in a voluminous twisted style to slightly rupture the leaf cells, and then warm-air dried in a method that mixes both white and green tea production methods. Only the 2nd and 3rd leaf of new shoots is used, and the result is an unusually delicate vegetal flavour that only gets sweeter when steeped for longer periods.

It’s super odd that I’m the first to review this….

Anyhow! Thanks to Janelle for sending me some of this in our swap! Unfortunately, I think it’s one of those white teas that falls into the “nearly flavourless” category for me. I can tell that I’m drinking tea; there’s a bit of a vegetal flavour to it, but despite the liquor being darker than I expected (darker than most properly-brewed greens!), flavour is minimal. That said, what I can taste is pleasant enough, a bit sweet, vegetal, perhaps hay-like (although no dry mouthfeel), just weak. I used 1.5 tsp for 8 oz. and brewed for 2.5 minutes – the DT recommendations were for 4-5 min, so maybe I’ll try that next time. I just went by the surprisingly dark liquor colour, and didn’t want an oversteeped tea!
