From Teabox

Made from the high-quality B/5/63 clone, this white tea is about pleasant flavors and a velvety smooth texture. Made by wilting under steam, the tea has a noticeable vegetal taste that’s uncommon in Indian white teas. However, the choice of clone ensures the cup fluid, well-rounded, slightly sweet, and immensely pleasant on the senses.

AROMA
Light notes of steamed corn and vegetables with hints of white flower and fruit.

APPEARANCE
Champagne

TASTE
The liquor is light but smooth and slightly sweet. Notes of vegetable broth can be picked throughout the length of the cup, made pleasant by light, soft notes of tree fruit.

COMPLEMENTS
Ideal on its own or with a light snack.

This is my first ever Nilgiri tea.

The dry leaf smells like Chinese green tea, sweet and vegetal. Tea liquor smells more like white tea, fruity and slightly floral, with steamed corn (as it says on Teabox’s website). It tastes fresh and sweet, no bitterness, a lot like sweet corn, maybe corn soup?

This tea is very good, and I am a huge fan of corn, but I am being very selective about how much green and white tea I buy every year now so I doubt I’ll buy the full size of this.

Brewed at 177˚F for just under 5:00.
