From Kuura

HONEY JAR’ is a white tea from Fujian, that has developed some distinct characteristics due to its age.

Compared to fresh white tea, the fragrance of the tea is less bright and floral, and more sweet and ‘honeyed’ (hence the name). Flavour wise, the tea has a solid sweetness, again, reminiscent of honey, and is thick and unique. We really recommend taking the time to enjoy the smell of the brewed leaves and empty cup or pitcher.

What more do we need to say? Who doesn’t like honey?

We are selling this tea either in larger 360g whole cakes, or by weight in 50g increments.

The tea was produced in 2013 and stored in Guangdong until 2018 when we purchased it.

K is for…Kuura, specifically their 2013 Honey Jar Aged White Tea

Thank you Roswell Strange for sharing this with me!

I used this in a gongfu session the other day since I did not have any tea that started with “K” but had this tea from a company that started with “K”. It seemed like a good call.

I got a fair amount of steeps from it before I gave up because it was lunch time. I think Ros mentioned buckwheat honey in one of her notes and that held true for a lot of the steeps. This was smooth and definitely had a honey sweetness throughout all the sips. Honey Jar is a fitting name – even some steeps that were a bit blander were still smooth and sweet.

I hurt my back yesterday so I haven’t been having tea so this was the last tea I had a couple days back.

Gongfu!

Dipped into my stash of this precious white tea on Monday evening. I think this is still my favourite tea from Kuura – I don’t think describing it as anything other than liquid honeycomb would really do the deliciousness of this tea justice, and I will probably forever regret not buying a full cake of this when I had the chance. Other than the splooshes of tea that were shed to get a gorgeous photo to capture the beauty of the tea, I steeped this tea until it had no more life left to give.

My current 80 rating seems too low – I’m bumping git up to match how I currently feel.
