Today, I decided to drink a white tea, from Tea&Ty: White Mae Teng. It’s a tea that I received from my friend in France, so this is the reason why I have the chance to have it. To be honest, it’s not fresh but I was able to write my review.
First thing that I saw, it’s the tea leaves: it’s so dense et so big! It was difficult to put 4 grams of tea inside my little teapot!! Lol But, where is the delicate and sweet aroma?
Well, it’s only when the leaves are wet that I smelled a sweet, fruity and delicate aroma. Also, I smelled aloes vera. The liquor was a light golden yellow and the leaves are vibrant green. At tastes, it fruity (apricot?), sweet (honey). The aloes vera is also present. Then while getting cold, I also perceived notes of mangoes.
It’s an interesting tea to drink. A beautiful complexity in aroma and savors. It’s surprising me for a white tea. Also, it’s refreshing and a good tea to drink in Spring or Summer.
