I gambled, and put it into my gong fu 2 go tumbler western. I let it sit for about 3-4 minutes using 3-4 ish grams, maybe less, and I was happy that it’s a fruity floral style kind of white tea. I got honeysuckle, rose, grape, muscat, butter, and melon. The other two rebrews had a hint of astringency that was welcomed, like a really great lighter sheng. I kept coming back to it after the first two brews. The later steeps do become a little bit more astringent, but floral and fruity still.

Looking at the notes on the website, they put vanilla and muscatel, which I kinda see, moreso muscatel than vanilla. There’s a little bit more luscious fruit on my palette leaning a little towards apricot or peach, but they’re not prevalent enough for me to commit them in the database. The vanilla is the floral I’m having a hard time figuring out. Geranium, maybe? It was pretty close to rose for me personally. Oh well, I’m excited to see what other people think. The company was right in that this tea definitely suits a Taiwanese Tea lovers palette. I think this tea and Azure are my favorites so far from derk.

Thank you for the incredible white tea! I honestly don’t know what I’d rate it. Definitely higher than an 85, but easily approaching the 90s. I think so many kinds of people would enjoy this one, snob and newbie alike.
