From What-Cha

A light sweet tasting green tea composed mainly of buds, with a light vegetal taste which lingers on the tongue.

An unusual tea made with a white tea cultivar but processed as a green tea, resulting in it having the light sweetness of a white tea coupled with a gentle vegetal taste associated with Chinese green teas.

Tasting Notes:
- Delicate and smooth tea
- Sweet initial taste which transitions into a light lingering vegetal taste

Harvest: Spring, early March 2020

Cultivar: Fuding Da Bai Hao
Origin: Baise, Guangxi, China
Sourced: Specialist Chinese tea wholesaler

Brewing Advice:
- Heat water to roughly 70°C/158°F
- Use 2 teaspoons per cup/small teapot
- Brew for 45-60 seconds

Packaging: Resealable ziplock bag

The vegetal taste I get is peas. Sweet, then peas. Sweet peas, if you like. It’s definitely peas you pick from your parents’ garden off a trellis and eat fresh and bursting right there, but… A lot is going to depend if you like those vegetal notes in tea. It turns out I don’t much.

I now know I love corn and grass notes in green tea, not all vegetal notes. I wouldn’t have known that before this, because none of the greens I’ve tried before were so purely green-veg. It’s not a do again for me, but it’s very different from some other Chinese greens and should be tried.

Brew it cool! It was definitely better well below 80, even. The 70 on the packet is about right.
