From Yunnan Sourcing

High quality hand-picked and processed silver needles (pure bud) white tea from Da Si village in Feng Qing county of Lincang.

Slight cinnamon spice aroma when brewed. Thick and sweet. Very lubricating mouth-feel that stays in the mouth after drinking.

Brewing tip: Use 90c water and keep infusion times short for the first 3 to 4 infusions. Can be infused 7 or 8 times!

a lovely tea.

little glass pitcher method (grandpa style):

when I smell the leaves dry, they smell like flowers and ground pepper.

when I smell the leaves wet, its the same but with a spicy smell.

when I smell the brewed tea, it smells like flowers and ground pepper.

when I taste the brewed tea, it tastes like flowers, ground pepper and some chalkiness.

I rate this tea a 90 because I don’t like the chalk taste

lovely mouthfeel

gets really sweet when it cools off

I really enjoyed this tea. I bet it would have lasted many more infusions, but I’m trying to get through as many teas as I can before I have to send the box along.
