From SerendipiTea

Also known as longevity eyebrow or sow mee, Shou Mei is harvested later & has fewer tips & more leaf than other white teas. The large, green & light brown hued leaves steep to a light yellow-orange infusion. This smooth, earthy cuppa with mellow, nutty notes & sweet finish is sure to delight tea enthusiasts.

TeaTiff TTB. They only have directions for an English teapot. So I will be winging it using the knowledge I’ve gained thus far. And tea is objective. Water at 185F. The dry leaf contains a lot of stems and a mix of leaf and fuzzy buds. Silver hairs and varying tones of greens. Lots of barnyard notes in the initial aroma.
10 seconds: Hay, it’s a bit indescribable this slightly sweet tone I’m getting…
30 seconds: bready and earthy
Overall, I’m tasting a good amount of barnyard notes with some unique tones hitting at different times. Also a bit of an 1880s house.
The wet leaf aroma is quite pleasing. Sticking your nose deeper into the leaf you go from a freshly cleaned barn to fresh leaf notes

My first white Shou Mei puzzled me. I wondered if it was a prank because it looked like something that had just been raked up in someone’s yard. Big pieces of broken leaf, dry and a little twiggy looking. It was delicious, though!
