Pai Mu Tan – White tea
“Do you think back to your grandparents’ kitchen now and then? We always had deep red fruit tea with lots of honey. We used to play Ludo and laugh endlessly.”
Oh yeah, I miss my grandparents from father side of family. She was great. Grandpa was, as long I remember, very sick.
As for tea:
I am happy to see “proper” tea finally. I have not used exactly measured water temperature, but I hope it is around 80°C as they suggest and quite short steeping time. My flu is still going on, but I notice little bit of floral notes (of lillac).
Brews bit darker than I expected, like a light black tea. Brew is clear.
Tastes like light black tea as well, bit of malt, but mostly floral, nothing distinctive, but enjoyable somehow.
Flavors: Floral, Malt
