Hay is for Horses but better for Cows, Toads can eat it but i think we’d rather drink it, This one taste sweet and like Hay with an almost buttery smooth mouthfeel, Saying taste like hay is not a bad thing at all it’s really damn tastey, many white teas i’ve tried have had slight haylike taste just not so much as this one and never in a bad way.
The dry leafe has a sweet almost floral aroma to it that is very pleasing, my sample got crushed in the bottom of a box because i had to box up all my teas and move them around into another room due to renovations and when I pour some out in my hand the little pieces of leafe feel very soft and fuzzy like goose down in a soft pillow.
Some teas feel really good when you hold it in your mouth and swish it around some, this is one of them.
I did decide to try this one with a little sweetener added and it was delicious, reminded me of the taste of honeycomb cereal from when i was a kid.
Very good tea, I’m really starting to like white teas more and more these days :)

Honeycomb cereal – excellent descriptive term. Not every one ‘gets’ white tea. Curious, do you drink a lot of Assams? I love white tea but am not a big fan of heavy black tea like Assam.

I do like Assams and darker teas Blacks and Puerhs so I’m trying to drink more whites and greens and such so that I’m not stuck on the darker ones, I’m enjoying the whites so far :)
