Interesting. tried this as i love whites, the leaves are more spindly like its almost an Oriental Beauty.
aroma from the steeped leaves is more vegetal than i thought. from the cup there is an underlying sweetness, a syrup.
Tried it as recommended, 4g 90c 2:30 western style. I think this might have been too much (the 4g & temp). there is a hint of sourness, which reminds me of a too-strong white. next time i’ll try it the white way, 80c 3g 3mins.
I let it cool. interesting tea. very much like a white, but with a slight sourness that hangs around on the tongue, less floral than a yin zheng, but with similar characteristics.
Tried it straightaway after at 80/3g/3mins, it was similar to a yin zhen, again more sour and less sweet. I preferred a good silver needle, ,i must confess.
Made me feel nice. slight astringency.
I think i will need to experiment more with this tea, at the moment im on the fence with it, so it gets an 80 from me.
