From Yunnan Sourcing

This is a special tea made from Jinggu Yang Ta village area Large Leaf varietal tea (Camellia Taliensis). Made from first flush spring tea this White tea is delicious and fruity. First infusions give the impression of freshly cut green grass. Later infusions yield a floral and fruit smell and taste.

Simliar material to Yue Guang Bai, but different processing makes this tea unique.

March 2017 Harvest

This time I can smell a strong dried apricot note in the dry leaf, it reminds me of apricot danish pastry a bit too. Generally, I found the smell somewhat more fruity, with some peach and nectarine hints too. Some new notes I got from the wet leaf smell include tobacco and strangely enough quite strongly also the smoke generated by smoke machines at concerts and such. That took me by surprise somewhat. Generally it’s quite a sweet smell compared to the taste, which also has some sweetness (this time I also noticed bubblegum in at least one of the infusions), but verges on the savoury side overall I would say.

This is a delicious white tea for a great price.

I have other teas made from Camellia Taliensis, this white can take the heat.

Edit: I placed another order for this tea on BF.

This tea brews up a very pretty light champagne gold, and smells like fresh alfalfa with a touch of something savory that I can’t place. The taste was mostly light hay, alfalfa, and a soft vegetalness with a tiny bit of honey. I didn’t get much in the way of floral or fruit notes. The finish is a little short and on the dry side. I spaced out and forgot to use a filter for the first few steeps but didn’t end up eating a bunch of leaf which was nice. The price point on this tea is really nice, which would make it a nice daily drinker for someone that likes a more savory white. I said “nice” too many times. This tea is nice.
