From TeaGschwendner

Überzeugender Weißer Tee aus dem Süden Indiens! Fruchtig-leicht und duftig tritt er gegen die chinesischen Klassiker an. Samtige, gelbe Tasse. Exotisch.

Well, that was unexpected, and I think I may be able to guess why this replaced the White Oothu. I somehow missed the timer going off, resulting in an unintentionally long steep time of a bit over 6 minutes. But it still tasted fruity, without any bitterness. I think the White Oothu would probably have been slightly less forgiving(though still more so than a classic Chinese white tea), and since this is TG’s cheapest white tea(and therefore probably the one most often bought by people new to white tea), that complete lack of bitterness was probably considered more important than the option of getting multiple steeps out of it.

It was a pleasant surprise that it wasn’t bitter after that steep, and I think I’m more likely to either make this in my big glass pot(technically the glass body of a Bodum Assam), like I did this time, or throw it in the Mono Filio as a base for White Vanilla Chai, than to brew it gongfu in a gaiwan, so I think I probably won’t really miss the extra steeps(I have other white teas that i can use for gongfu, so …).
