From Beautiful Taiwan Tea Company

The Hmong minority let the Vu family pick these very rare tea leaves from trees that average 500 years old! Brew it like a green. Watch for astringency (unless you like it that way).

Didn’t really check the temperature or steeping time today. I overslept, and was a little too tired to think about those details. This pouch sort of jumped out at me, so i went for it. Put the water to heat for about a minute forty, and put about a teaspoon of tea into the tea ball, and let it steep. Some time later (maybe about 15-20 minutes or so), I took a sip. It was still warm, but not hot.

The tea tasted beautiful.

It reminded me of green chai, really, even though there was nothing but the tea leaves in this, I think. I don’t know, maybe there was a bit of mint in there. That’s what it tastes like, anyway. No sweetness, but a little bit of tingle like from mint.

I love it. I’m going to have to steep this a few times today, too.

Tasting #1 – Steep Time 2 Minutes
Light roasted aroma and very light in color. There is a bite to the flavor, like bark, with a soft floral note.

Tasting #2 – Steep Time 4 Minutes
The roasted aroma has deepened slightly, with a softness at the end. Flavor has remained consistent, my mouth is full of juxtaposition as the earthy bark is highlighted with this floral element. I need to learn how to distinguish between different trees and different flowers.

Tasting #3 – Steep Time 6 Minutes
The softness in aroma has developed into honey, mixed with the roastedness its like honey on toast. The color has finally started to change into a very light peach. I’m certain that the floral flavor is from the type of tree these leaves come from, because it isn’t strong like when jasmine is added to a tea, but as if it came from the jasmine tree. I don’t think its jasmine though.

Tasting #4 – Steep Time 8 Minutes
The honey sweetness now dominates the aroma. The roasted aroma has now settled into the flavor to give this a very earthy feel. Not like a campfire, but like wood freshly chopped so you can smell deep within the tree.

COLD BREW
If you could combine the flavor of a roasted white tea, it would be this. Amazingly delicious and scrumptious, soft and delicate. I don’t think I can express how amazingly and wonderful this tea is like this.
