A darker nuttier white brew than other white teas I’ve had. It’s got a scent of fresh hay and a flavor that’s slightly astrigent but quite pleasant. It’s got some sweet notes as well as a few sour ones – but the sour works.

This is one of those teas that takes a lot of leaf with a shorter brew time. The leaves are light and fluffy and all over the place. It’s almost like clouds.

I think I still need to work on my brewing parameters, but overall, this is pleasant.

Bio

I’ve got a lot of interests: sushi, science fiction/fantasy, medieval recreation, cooking (specifically medieval cooking), reading, British science fiction (Doctor Who!), hand sewing and now TEA!!

My favorites tend to be oolongs and flavored black teas. I like highly flavored teas more than delicate ones. Rooibos tends to taste like dirt to me, and hibiscus is very sour to my palate. But I’m always up to try all sorts of things, and will often find things that I really like which I thought I’d hate.
