The dry leaf and the brewed tea smells very vegetal. Not really floral like I expected from a white tea. The leaves are really cute looking, curly and bright green when steeped.
First steep, 20seconds. I am getting boiled spinach with slightly salted butter. No hint of floral, but it is creamy.
Second steep for 25seconds. Maybe a little bit sweeter with a little bit less vegetal taste. More creamy in a way.
Third steeping for 25seconds. The aroma and taste of snap peas with a silky smooth finish enters my senses at this point.
Fourth steeping for 35seconds. This is probably my favourite steeping, it is lightly vegetal with creamy notes. I am not sure if I am getting soymilk, almond, or vanilla but there are maybe hints of each one.
Fifth steeping for 35seconds. Much the same as the fourth
To be honest, this is a lot more vegetal than I was expecting for a white tea. However, it is a tea of exceptional quality and flavour.
