I’ve had this sample for a little while but am just getting around to trying it. It’s pretty neat the way it looks like a silver needle but then you also see some tiny green leaves in the package as well. :)
Everyone else is complaining about the heat but it’s chilly here today… brrr. Bring on some more warm tea!
This cup steeps up to be a very light yellow. It isn’t as floral or fruity as some white teas I’ve had recently, but it does have a sweet and rich mouthfeel, almost similar to a green oolong. There’s a slight butteriness and the sweetness really lingers in the finish. As my cup cools, the flavor here reminds me a lot of fresh honeydew melons with a bit of cream.
This is my first mutan white tea but I was very impressed with it, it’s lovely! I would definitely consider buying more of this if I could ever get through the other white teas I have at home…
