From DAVIDsTEA

“Watch out, China”
This style of tea originated in China, and Sri Lanka is a newcomer in producing it. But this particular tea competes with the best of them. Made of long, individual buds, it has beautifully delicate notes of fresh corn silk and white mushroom, and a surprising ability to linger and sweeten the palate. It’s both a tribute to the Chinese tradition and a serious challenge to the established masters.

This tea has a very delicate earthy, almost mushroomy flavour with a hint of honey. A nice treat occasionally but one really has to pay attention to what you’re drinking and really savour it or its a bit of a waste – it doesn’t leave much of an impression if you are distracted with something and just want to drink something hot. Perfect for a lazy sunday afternoon of contemplating life, the universe, and everything.

It’s also perfect with ambiant music like Sigur Ros or Boards Of Canada :)
All the Sri Lanka teas from DT are simply AMAZING! I want more haha!

A really simple flavor for this one, but I can’t explain what it taste like… It taste a little like honey and the rest of the taste is the white tea taste. Yes, this is a gentle one.

Is it worth the price?
Yes, if you like pure taste, especially white tea! But never try this one as your first white tea.

P.S. -7 minutes really show the honey flavor. Enjoy!
