From Distinctly Tea

This very special tea deserves careful preparation. Brew it either in a gaiwan or Yixng tea pot (serious Silver Needle lovers will dedicate a Yixing pot just for this tea).

Instructions: 1 heaping tsp, 8 oz. cup water 185F, 3-5 min.

OMG smells SO GOOD. My nose is in the bag right now I can’t take it out!! All the fuzzy white hairs on the leaves make me excited! The leaves actually look like tiny string beans! This is the second of my spoils from Distinctly Tea, and despite my terrible experience with Teaopia’s White Pear, I am encouraged about delving into white teas again.

When steeped, the leaves float in a vertical orientation at the top, looking a lot like (and kind of creepily??) like string beans perfectly stacked and spaced on an invisible vine. Weird! I’ve never seen that in a tea before.

In taste, it reminds me of Darjeeling, but less nutty. Very light, a little bit buttery, but altogether very very nice. I can’t stop sipping! Yummy!
