This was the first white tea that I have ever seen that consists entirely of stems. There are absolutely no leaves in this tea. The term “antler” is a perfect visual representation for the stems, as they have a shiny yet soft and smooth appearance and texture, resembling the antlers of a young deer. The average length of the stems is two to three inches (50-77 mm). The aroma of the dry stems is fairly delicate and common, but do not be quick to judge based on this single common feature.
The bright color of the liquor carries a fruity, sweet aroma and taste. Lychee fruit, honey, orange marmalade, and sweet hay describe the notes I took on the aroma and taste. The body is light-medium, with a smooth, and very satisfying texture. The aftertaste is also sweet.
The best part of this tea is that it will literally last for hours. I got seven infusions out of the sample pot, and I stopped there simply because I had to go to sleep eventually. This is a truly unique product that is hard to find in the U.S.
