From Bitterleaf Teas

One of the more refreshing white teas we have on offer, this year’s iteration is made from Lancang material, which showcases less of the vegetal qualities present in previous years’ versions. While the base material has changed, the spirit of this tea is the same, remaining uncomplicated and light on its feet.

Taking the place of some of the grassier notes is a more prominent wildflower fragrance. This is balanced out with a slight fruitiness and plenty of sweetness, making it somewhat more dynamic than its predecessors as well.

Sipdown! (29 | 344)

Finally getting back to these poor Bitterleaf samples that have been sitting, neglected, in my sipdown area for months. Poor dears… I think I just haven’t been reaching for my plain teas lately in general, probably because of all the fun new fall flavors I got.

Anyway. This one actually tastes a little bit like a sheng to me. Not fully, but it has a bit of that fruity funk to it that I don’t usually find in a white tea cake, along with a hint of bitterness. Otherwise, there’s that classic haylike white tea flavor, though here it’s a bit more barnyardy, like the hay has been sitting in a pile for a few days, rather than fresh hay. That sounds gross but it isn’t, LOL. More earthy/woody than fresh hay, is perhaps a better was to describe it.

A nice, grounding tea for fall. Very reminiscent of hayrides and piles of autumn leaves, with a hint of tart fruit.
