I put in an absorbent pack after the store because the leaves were quite pliable.

This is one of the more unusual tea’s Ive tasted. Its a white tea, but the flavor profile is all green. I started by brewing this at about 185, I find most white tea’s can take a little bit more heat than greens can, so I like to brew them at 185 instead of 175. In this case that was a wise choice.
First infusion I got a clear bright yellow liquor that was absolutely delightful. Spinach, Asparagus and sweet vegetal aroma’s are the first thing I got from it. Then sipping a bit, the flavors matched the aroma quite well, there was almost no hint of bitterness or astringency at all.
The second infusion got slightly stronger as I took it from 15 seconds up to about 25, and the liquor slightly darker. This produced a very nice flavor as well. I got a bit more asparagus at this point.
After doing some pretty extensive googling , I found that this tea is also called Drum Mountain white or Gu Shan Bai Yun and is known for having a flavor profile somewhat similiar to dragonwell.
I recommend this tea to someone who wants their green a little milder or a white tea with a bit stronger vegetal notes.
Flavors: Asparagus, Spinach, Sweet, Vegetal
