Rhino white tea seems processed similarly to Yunnan black teas, but with less oxidation. I guess it bears strong resemblance to Yunnan ‘yellow’ teas. It is quite complex and subtle, but I must say I find these kind of taste profiles – where subtle floral notes compete with robust malty ones – a bit unappealing.

The dry leaf scent has a strong bergamot oil note complemented by caramel, chocolate, raspberry, hay, brownies, and roasted grains. After the rinse, the aroma is slightly more robust, on the side of malt, toffee, light roast coffee beans, and cranberry pie. However, later throughout the session it actually becomes very floral.

The taste is very sweet and smooth, with notes of nectar, wood, roasted nuts and straw. On the other hand, the impression from the aftertaste is overwhelmingly floral. It still retains a lot of its sweetness and induces a cooling sensation in the throat.

The body is quite light, but I think it fits the tea very well. I found the mouthfeel fairly interesting too, very soft and delicate. All in all, it is an interesting tea for sure, but I don’t really have many occasions I would like to drink it. I think my main problem with it is that I find it a bit directionless.

I had been drinking Japanese green tea for a while before discovering the world of tea in 2017. I rarely drink blends and generally avoid artificially scented teas. Other than that I try to keep it varied.
