From Tea Haus

A premium tea that has exquisite haunting hints of lemon with a fresh lingering finish. The wirey silvery buds, coated in a light down, resemble dove’s wings while the flavour is light, sweet, and loaded with nuance. This is one of China’s best white teas.

Ordered a teapot of this tea at Tea Haus in London, ON. Both the employees working in the store seemed very approving of this choice and mentioned it was their best and most expensive tea in the store. They both mentioned they really enjoy and recommend it. Came to $6 for the pot of tea, which was several cups worth. I probably drank 2-2.5 cups myself, and my boyfriend 1-1.5, with another cup leftover that I brought home in a to-go cup, so quite a decent size full pot. We had a timer set for 5 minutes brought with it and took the leaves out when they were done steeping. (Didn’t get a chance to take the leaves and do a second steep.)

Very light and drinkable tea. Has a nice lemon-y aroma and taste. Lingering lemon aftertaste. I was able to drink a lot more of this tea than I usually do, basically it was as easy to drink as a lightly flavoured water – no astringency or bitterness, obviously not dark or overpowering in any way. Not much caffeine. Just very gentle and pleasing. Almost like the tea leaves just gave the water a quick kiss

This was my first experience with white tea and I enjoyed it. I imagine the flavoured white teas would be very nice as well.
