This tea is of shallow body and bears no resemblance to a white tea. The colour is gray and it has no scent. Only good for blending with some other tea.
Here I go… This is my first tea note on steepster. I want to start with something simple, tea bag that is. My loose leaf teas will have to wait a bit.
This one is from Teekanne Green & White 6×5 pack. I almost never buy tea bags, but this was a nice opportunity to try out few different teas for decent price. Instructions for steeping make more sense to me than other greens in the G&W pack (100C, 3-5m).
Tea seems a bit murky, but it has a longer steeped Bai MuDan hue to it. Aroma is more appealing, actually even surprising since I didn’t expect much from this tea bag.
With first sip you get that robust tobacco taste that lingers a bit and transforms to floral notes with exhaling through nostrils. After few sips there is a short sweet sensation in throat ended with that particular grapefruit peel note on the palate that rests for some time, along with moderate mouth dryness.
All in all, this is quite good cuppa for a tea bag, but I’m not sure if I’ll be restocking it, but hey, you never know… I still have four tea bags to go.
