89 Tasting Notes
This was a free sample from Teas Etc.
Leaves are green and finely chopped. The Honeydew aroma is strong both before and after brewing. Brewed, it tasted like Honeydew melon. The tea provides the dark-gold color. If you want a honeydew drink, this might be it, but as a tea, as a coworker commented, a waste of good water.
Followed vendors steeping, but 3 minutes always seems a bit long for a white tea. Leaves are like many other white teas, with their furry edges, but there are also pieces of dried green leaf included. Body is excellent. Initial aroma was surprising, very pleasant, more than vegetal, but I wouldn’t say buttery. However, as the tea cooled, the buttery taste did come through.
