This tea is now one of my favorite things. It steeps up to a rich amber color (the darkest white tea I’ve ever had). The viscosity is slightly thicker than water, but not thick enough to be weird (lol). It’s not bitter and has practically no astringency (just the merest hint to keep it from being boring) and it tastes like . . . honey? Only better? It’s sweet (but not sickly sweet) and has just a touch of floral without stinking of jasmine (I like jasmine, okay, but I prefer it in . . . well, anything other than tea). It’s friendly and approachable, yet elegant and refined at the same time. Basically it’s awesome and I wish there were more aged white teas available for me to try.
NB: The only issue is that brewing recommendations were by the tablespoon and the leaves are so big and flat they don’t really fit in a tablespoon at all (not that I mind having big leaves!!) so I just tossed a bunch in so now I have basically no idea how I brewed it. :P
