I remember trying this tea at the Tea Palace store in Covent Garden last year and being so impressed that I just had to buy some. They had a set Gongfu with a stand and small candle underneath to keep it warm, great idea.

I must admit that I am watching a documentary while typing this review so if what I say does not make sense then I apologize. Today we found out that King Richard III body has been found and it’s here in my home town of Leicester. It’s a huge historical moment! :) I’m overwhelmed.

The leaves are a mixture of silver and greeny brown that are squiggly, thin and long in appearance. They have a gentle floral and sweet scent.

Brewed in my Gongfu (3 steeps:1m,2m,3m) with 2 heaped teaspoons of tea.

1 minute – Pale yellow colour – Floral and sweet scent
Light, refreshing, floral, sweet, buttery, nutty. I remember this now :) The strength is good (for a white tea) and it’s sweetness resembles Peony. It’s completely light and buttery that make it just slip down so well. Wonderful quality.

2 minutes – More buttery and floral but at a perfect balance. Packed with flavour while still remaining light and very refreshing. Reminds me of a weak green tea.

3 minutes – Weaker now but still a good third steep. Very sweet and still no bitterness or impure flavours.

It carried itself on well through out all 3 steeps. Even though I am not a huge fan of white tea I think this is absolutely wonderful. Possibly my favourite white tea but too soon to tell. Great quality and taste that works well with re steeps. Plus this one comes with happy memories :)

I read an article last night about King Rivhard III’s body, but hasn’t heard if it was for sure him. How neat!

It was revealed today for the first time that “beyond reasonable doubt” it is the body of King Richard III. I remember being taught in school as a child about the magical King and the mystery of his bodies location. They said we would never find him and as a child I believed them….I guess it comes to show that miracles do happen.

My mom is a Richard III fanatic, I think she’s probably read every book on him that’s ever been written so my arrival home was greeted with “DID YOU HEAR THEY FOUND RICHARD IIIs BODY?!?!” Such an exciting moment, amazing when something we thought was lost to history is discovered again.

If I had tasted this tea as the very first white tea in life, I may have fallen in love with it ! But having this after falling in love with the sweeter and more mellow Chinese Silver Needle and White Peony, I find this a bit harsh and reminiscent of my “un educated green tea drinking days” !
