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.
Having some more this afternoon,,,,very spring-a-licious tea!!
Gaiwan style this morning!!!! Very delicate and lovely tea. Qualities of both a white and a green tea. Delicious, I would like a touch sweeter in the morning though so this is a good one for after lunch.
Flavors: Butter, Peas, Sugarcane
