I don’t usually do whites. Occasionally when I’m at my favorite tea house (Tea Drunk) I get to sample other peoples white teas they are enjoying but I never really paid them much mind since I was having robust Tie Luo Han or any other bold oolongs on the shelf. That said I expected this sample from Teabox to be anything other than inspiring. Dry and wet leaves have little to discern other than light hay notes. This tea is more than inspiring. Beautiful flavors abounding with headiness of rose with touches of lemon and Thompson grape. The soup is velvety and of a heavier mouth-feel than I would of expected. At the end there is a nuance of cucumber. One thing that did impress me was how this tea differs when first poured and when cooled down, the latter being my preference, it seems more sultry on the tongue.
I did twice the amount of tea as suggested on the website but increased the water to compensate and kept the steep at 5 minutes. Really enjoyable.
