From Nature's Tea Leaf

Sow Mee White Tea (Longevity Eyebrow White Tea) leaves are naturally withered with deep, olive green buds covered with light, white hairs. When infused, the tea leaves turn lighter in color and the liquid becomes a golden bronze. The Sow Mee White Tea has an uplifting aroma with a stimulating fruity, smooth flavor that is stronger than some white teas and similar to Oolong. Enjoy this delicious and gratifying tea hot or cold at any time of day.

With no other white tea experience to compare this to, I can say the flavor is somewhat fruity and evident, bu not whether it is strong or strongER than other white teas.

I enjoyed the pleasant aroma of the beautifully bronze liquor the leaves produce. The taste reminds me of some oolongs I’ve sampled recently, but the mouth feel is different. The flavor is lighter and lingers more on the front of my tongue than my entire mouth.

I understand this is low in caffeine, so I may steep some more as an evening cup to share. In any case – a very pleasant experience.

I always have to squint and think really hard to catch much character in any white tea :) Too many years of drinking unleaded. That and my, um, parsimonious nature (spelled c-h-e-a-p!) rebels against having to put two full teaspoons into a single cup.

I can appreciate the economy of it all. This was a gracious gift, and I am so completely enjoying my journey from a world of coffee to a veritable universe of tea. The secret is out, and I have years of catching up to do!

I try every so often to understand white tea. It bamboozles me. Not being a particularly intuitive person, I don’t want to have to chase down whatever flavor is in my cup. I want it to find me.

I didn’t have to run quite so hard for this one, a thoughtful sample tossed in with a Nature’s Tea Leaf order. Leaves were huge and virtually untouched; some stems in the bundle as well, but that isn’t a turn-off. Steeped as precisely to instructions as my sloppy methods allow, it was a honey-goldenrod color, satiny in texture, and a little sweet and soapy in taste. Soapy in a good way. And cornsilky. A nice little spring break in the middle of a very weary week.

Oooh, I need to order from them again. I love one of their black teas for breakfast. Now to find which one…

My order was a large packet of Fujian Congou.
