From The Whistling Kettle

Refreshing and delightful. The spring tea has a hint of sweetness followed with a mild astringent finish. Ultra High anti-oxidant source!

I liked this tea, but a little too astringent. I was honestly sold by the myth surrounding it for the novelty. The leaves are gorgeous, the aroma is fresh and mystical, like smelling mist on the mountains. As for taste, it really is in between being a white and green tea. The website describes it with a mild astringency, but I would say it’s one of the more dominant aspects of it. The body is a clear yellow green like glass, but the taste is a really strong, astringent green tea.

I can say it calmed me after the first cup, but after the second, I was a little spastic. Definitely worth a try for my newbie tastes, but I am not sure I’d recommend it. As for the company, they give you some pretty awesome deals and service.

This is the last of the samples I bought from the local The Whistling Kettle location. I think I chose this one because I like white teas and the leaf smells very nice. I don’t really know anything about this tea other than that it’s Chinese. The leaves are somewhat twisty, and a combination of silver and darker grey/green colors. The dry scent is reminding me of something extremely specific, and I’m annoyed that I can’t place it. It’s somewhat close to dried apricot, but it also has a sweet hay quality to it.

Steeped, it smells creamy with strong hay and a touch of savory smoke. I think I oversteeped this a tad, but that’s okay. It’s not straight-up bitter, but it’s developing a slight bitter edge. It has a nice deep hay flavor, and there’s actually a bit of muscatel here. There’s definitely dried fruit, perhaps a combination of prune and apricot. There’s a slight floral characteristic as well. This almost reminds me of Darjeeling a bit, which is odd for a white tea.
