From W2T club:
100 ml shibo, 205F, 5g?

Taste is dark fruit like raisins. Roasted sour at the end of the sip that goes away as the steep count increases. Long lasting fruity aftertaste. It did get astringent as the steep count went on and became much more drying. I don’t mind the roast here as it goes away relatively quickly. I got 8 or so steeps.

Sweet, caramelly mineral roast with surprisingly fruity body. It gets thinner and a bit astringent as you brew it out, but not unpleasantly so. Flavors are balanced and elegant, my biggest complaint is that it dies a bit too quickly for my taste, around steep 5 or 6. Best/strongest steeps are the first two.

Tea sent via the monthly tea club, so relatively small quantity.
Prep: 60cc gaiwan, almost full, boiling water, 10s, 10, 30, 30, 30, 45, 60
Sessions with this tea: 2

Taste: This is primarily a fragrance lover’s tea. Medium-spectrum malt and roast notes, some light fruitiness. There’s not much to the taste of this one for me though. But the fragrance pours off of it and fill room with rich floral notes.

Body: Medium mouthfeel, not as thick as I look for. Not much playfulness across the tongue. Not much minerality to this one either. Really not much at all going on in the body of this one.

Ultimately this tea is too light and delicate for my taste, and doesn’t steep out as long as I would like. I do enjoy fragrant teas, and this tea would be excellent for oolong lovers who love chasing brightness in their tea.

First, a little rant. This is my second month of the White2Tea monthly club and it will definitely be my last. I signed up for December because they were including a 250g heicha brick and that seemed like a good deal (which is sort of was, the brick is OK). This month I open my box to find a grand total of 22.5g of tea. For $30. I wouldn’t pay that much per gram for tea I knew was going to be amazing. But whatever, maybe this tea is super valuable and rare to try and I’m just an idiot. But really, what a horrible value.

Leaf is lightly rolled and very intact, beautiful leaves. Primary nose on the wet leaf is chocolate and malted milk. Taste on the rinse is fruity and roasty. Nice so far. Fruitiness is less bright on the second steep and a little more mineraly, still keeping a nice roasty flavor. Perfect tea for this snowy morning, really.

Continues to be bright, mineral, low astringency, some oxidation flavors, really delicate and complex tea. Delicious? Yes. Worth over $1/g? Hell no.
