I wanted to try some really new and fresh tea and this is really it!! The white tea leaves are still beautiful shades of light green and smell fresh with a slight vegetal or green scent. The leaves feel different in that they have a bit of weight to them because they are so fresh.
The liquor is the distinctive white tea creamy clear color and smells sweet.
The flavor has hints of honey, butter bean, and a tiny tiny touch of sugarcane.
This is really delicious white tea!!
Second Steeping is just as delicious and a bit more sweetness came thru this time with the butter bean and greenness staying in the background.
Third Steeping ,,,flavors not as pronounced but still wanted to try a third since this is a great tea!!
Having a pot of this after lunch. The threads are so pretty,,a sea foam green and cream colored mix of little twisty cuties.
Then the wet leaf reveals that they are all very young and small tender buds!! This is a very delicate and lovely tea!!!
Flavor has green tea qualities like a Long Jing met a White Peony and they had a baby and the baby got mostly Long Jing’s genes lol. Very Very delicious tea for after lunch :)
6/10/14 Having another pot,,,delicious!! I baby these leaves. I poured the water into my pot and then tried to ease the infuser with the delicate leaves into the heat so as not to burn them. Very buttery and not as lima bean tasting. I am adding butter as a tasting note ;)
Had a bit of this today after I had a couple cups of black tea and a cup of yellow tea. This is very mild and creamy. It has some vegetal notes but there is also cream and a touch of honey. Beautiful dry leaf too.
Flavors: Butter, Cream, Honey, Lima Beans
