Love white teas. This is to me the sweeter ‘Snow Bud green tea’. They have similar clean taste with a very light vegetal after taste. This one starts more sweeter like light honey. I usually do two steeps, the second is a bit more vegetal and grassy. (You can try re-steeping snow bud but to me it gets a bit astringent.)

Gorgeous, fuzzy, 2 leaves & a bud with pretty multi hues of light green, dark green, and silver green.
The liquor is a clear champagne color and has a slight honey scent.
The flavor is slight butter bean with a sweet honey note mixed in. Very light, fresh and cleansing.


Second Steeping—I found the second steeping even better than the first which bumps this tea up to 100. ( I am giving lots of high scores lately because I found the teas I like and so I guess that’s why the scoring on here is very personal)
The flavor on the second is sweeter, loses the butter bean and just keeps a sweet fresh note.

Leaves look so much like white peony but the flavor is almost like a mild green tea. This tea is not as sweet as most whites but does have a little sweet note. Good tea for when you want a green tea but not a strong vegetal or mineral type green (even though it’s a white tea lol).

Origin: Guo Shan (Drum Mountain) Mountains along the coast of Fujian Province, China.
Wet Leaves are very tender young leaves with scents of butter and spring peas.
The Liquor has a light light celery green color which I love.
Flavor is light spring pea with a touch of butter and a touch of sweetness on the finish.
This is a lovely tea.
