As I’ve mentioned before, I am trying to reorganize my tea stash, and I’ve managed to uncover some teas that I’d forgotten I’d purchased. This is a tea I had purchased in 2010, but it remained sealed until this very night, so, it still tastes remarkably fresh given its age.
It is a very interesting tea, very light in taste, but it has a background that is much denser in flavor than the foreground. It almost starts off like water, but then the flavors develop on the palate. Sweet, earthy and unlike any white tea I’ve tasted before this. It tastes more like a weak black tea than it does a white tea.
Very interesting, and very enjoyable. It tempts me to watch the JK Tea Shop website for the 2012 harvest (although they are still offering the 2011 harvest on their site) to see how it compares.
