The most beautiful silver needle-looking, very long, slender, perfectly uniform sea-foam green colored leaves I have ever seen!!! Scents of spice and a bit of fresh cranberry, lima bean.
The leaves were so pretty I didn’t want to pour water onto them but I placed them into my glass teapot so I could watch them. They danced downward as they brewed. Very pretty.
The flavors are very subtle with this white. I left the leaves in for 4 minutes and the liquor didn’t gain too much color and it has scents and flavors of butter bean. It has the subtlety of a white but a few notes of a light green tea. The fruit I am catching is quince.
Brewed a bit of this Western style today. The dry leaves smell like spices. I am tasting the quince again today and this tea has mellowed out a bit with less butter bean and sweeter notes. Very good. Gets sweeter as it cools.
Having a cup this afternoon, Western style. Very nice white. The leaves are super huge and fuzzy silver needles. Love it!
Gaiwan style this morning!! Very subtle and lovely tea. Pretty leaves!
Western style this morning,,,used lots of leaf,,,170F for 4 minutes. Has a creamier mouthfeel today and is really mellowing out. Will have to get more of this sometime bc I am almost out.
Flavors: Fruity, Hay, Honey, Lima Beans
