Delicate white (green?) tea. I’m not convinced this is a white. It doesn’t really taste like a green, but it doesn’t taste like any white I’ve ever had.

Lightly vegetal (zucchini flesh, cucumber, dried leaves/herbs in your spice cupboard) it reminds me a bit of bay leaves and white coriander seeds. Almost savoury rather than sweet spices, but nothing I can put my finger on. It isn’t a taste I can really describe well.

Flavors: Coriander Seed, Cucumber, Herbs, Vegetal, Zucchini

Preparation
190 °F / 87 °C 4 min, 15 sec 1 tsp 17 OZ / 500 ML

I got it as a sample from JK7ray on reddit in one of her stash sample sales. I’m not sure it it is 2015 or 2014. It didn’t seem to have lost too much flavour, though, for a white/green tea.

Autumn 2015 version here.

This one has slight a lemon flavour in there, and as AllanK found out can turn sour if overbrewed, from lemon to lemon zest. In fact I completely agree with the other notes mentioned in his review, there is some vegetal in there and the standard white floral, also slightly astringent, with an aftertaste & an after-smell (is there even a word for that?) which just somehow reminds me of lemon cleaner or zest.

Im going to refine my brewing to find the perfect setting for this tea & will update this review when ive found them.

Bought this tea a while ago but just now got around to trying it. It is fairly tasty. It is floral and somewhat vegetal in nature. I may have slightly over brewed this tea at 3 minutes and am getting a slight sour aftertaste. I suspect I over brewed it. The dry leaves are white and wiry and have what I would describe as an orchid like aroma. They smell absolutely divine. As with all things divine, the reality of the brew is just a little short of that but it is quite good. The Yunnan Sourcing USA site does not list brewing instructions for this tea so I have no way to be certain whether I over brewed it.

I brewed this tea once in an 18oz teapot with 3 tsp leaf and 185 degree water for 3 min.

Flavors: Floral, Vegetal
