From Mariage Frères

Mariage Frères has created here a unique and exclusive white tea. We have selected centuries-old tea trees from the distinguished section of Jingiam of the prestigious Namring Upper Tea Eastate known as «the garden from beyond the skies», then plucked the delicate, downy tea buds and hand-crafted them one by one in the rarefied mountain air and sun.
This tea with its distinctive fresh, delicate flavour yields a crystalline liquor, bearing notes of mandarin, and complemented by a flowery bouquet of orchid.
The ensemble lingers on the palate, with subtle hint of sweetness to finish – unique in harmony and balance.

Today I’m taking a rare day off, and I’m hoping that this is the start of a new normal for me- actually taking my vacation days instead of hoarding them forever.

I almost decided to brew an entire pot of this morning, but then I did the conversion as to how much tea I would need (the entire 20g!) and decided just to brew a small mason jar full of this instead so that I might be able to share some of this. I couldn’t help thinking that the mason jar was such a humble vessel for such a fancy tea!

I am not a big fan of white teas, but when I first caught the aroma of this, I fell in love. It immediately reminded me of the Arya Pearl Darjeeling White from Canton Tea Co. It definitely has Darjeeling characteristics that I recognized (same floral notes), but where many black Darjeelings would strong undertones that are earthy, woody, and muscatel, this has a sweet, creamy, almost vanilla character which I love. The finish on this is wonderfully long and full of fresh florals.

I do the best I can at describing what I smell and taste, but I know my palate isn’t great. I hope to improve it soon, though with a palate training class with a local sommelier.

It is very good tea. You can smell very subtle, fragrant floral scent when you brew it. Recommended brewing time was 7 min and not bitter at all. Flavor is somewhat weak though but I think I should have put less water.

I liked this tea however considering price… it should be good! (It is definitely pricier one.)
