drank Bamboo Dove by White2Tea
316 tasting notes

My new year’s W2T order came today, oh the wonders of EMS shipping! My free 100g cake (they had a promotion going on) ended up being the Lincang/Mengku from the terior set. I find it slightly ironic that a company that generally doesn’t tell you the terior of their teas has a terior tasting set…

Anyways, this tea came in compressed cylinders that smelled like slightly roasty aged white. I was pleasantly surprised that that carried over into the taste as well! Tastes of raisin, malt, minerals, and apricot supported by lesser notes of roast, bamboo. Slight medicinal taste. Like an aged white despite being 2017. It excels when pushed for longer steeps; it gets thick and honeyed without getting bitter.

Now I wish I had gotten some of the Turtle Dove to compare. I like this tea a lot, and am definitely going to buy some more.

My name is Thomas, and I’ve been a tea addict since around 2011.

My favorites are pu’erhs, blacks/reds, and roasted oolongs, but I have a growing interest in good whites, and sometimes enjoy greens.

Currently trying to get an education, working a part time job, and having an existential crisis.

Other than tea I love the outdoors, playing guitar, ceramics, building things, and gardening.

I started a tea blog in February 2018, though admittedly I haven’t updated it much lately.

When I give a tea a numerical rating it’s simply meant to reflect a balance of how well I enjoyed the tea and how it compares to others of the same style. I don’t follow any universal rating criteria, and my ratings are mainly meant for my own use, to remember what I though of a tea and if I want to repurchase.
