Wow. It took me a while to fuly appreciate it the way it deserves, but now barely a day goes by without my evening cup of White Oothu.
It is rather aromatic and flavourful for a white tea and has a distinctly fruity aroma to it. In fact the fruityness was so overpowering to me at first, that I shunned the White Oothu for my Bai Mu Dan for a while.
After several tasting though I have to conclude that this white specimen has a deliciously round body that will not disappoint the lover of white teas, even after multiple steepings. And you get a lot out of this beauty – I brew it in a gaiwan and can easily steep 5gr of White Oothu 10 to 15 times before having to add more leaves.
The fruity notes linger for a long time and give way in later steepings to a very gentle body with slight hints of sweetness, melons and very mild grassiness. Very well rounded.
