First white tea for me that had significant age to it.
There was an intriguing sweetness to it that was hard to pin down. It was sort of like coconut or carob, where the sweetness is balanced by a sort of woody/stem-y note.
Definitely a departure from a fresh white tea. Much richer base sweetness and much more complexity.
Dry leaf – honeysuckle, blackberry syrup, carob, sweet floral
Smell – cherry wood, coconut, marshmallow, blackberry syrup, fruit leaf (? – I don’t know, just sort of a fruit-sweet mixed with leafiness…)
Taste – coconut, carob, dark chocolate cherry cordial are predominant. Base flavors of English breakfast tea, some hints of tea with lemon juice.
