Thank you Indigobloom for sharing this with me too!
I have had it around for a while and I apologize for just now getting around to it!
I seem with teas I only have a sample of to try putting off tasting until I have the time and peace to really enjoy them.
When I first smelled this in the steeped form I smelled dirt and sugar lol.
It has almost a beet flavor to it and it is mildly and naturally sweet!
I love earthy teas so the slight flavor of dirt I am getting is a okay with me!
I do get the lightly melon flavor but had I not had that pointed out to me by other reviews I may have just called it juicy and fruity.
I do pick up the peppery essence that Dylan found lacking.
What I love about this tea is everyone seems to get something slightly different from it!
Thank you again Indigobloom! I am enjoying this cup!
White Butterfly is produced in the Fujian province of China where only the youngest leaves are gathered in the few days of early spring. The spiral twisted leaf and naturally white downy appearance makes this a delicate, clean, sweet and mild cup of tea. Not only is White Butterfly revered as one of the finest Chinese White Teas, but it is also naturally low in caffeine which adds to its widespread appeal in the tea community.
