In the ER, out, in the ER out. At least I managed a three day interim this time.
Thanks to Ellen for this. I hadn’t tried an Indian white before but I’ve only heard laudatory reviews. This one wasn’t astounding but a nice change. Not as malty as I’d like but it’s definately a good Assam. Surprisingly like oak and held up to seven small steeps for me, not much variation in flavors. It piqued my interest in Indian white tea. Hmm, how would an Izu white taste, I wonder?
Mothola Estate White Tea (TA98)
Crafted entirely from the tips of the Assamica tea plant, this rare selection is on par with the most exquisite white teas. The flavor is smooth and sweet as one expects from a quality white tea, but a surprising malty nuance adds a delightful complexity. Highly recommended.
