Pure Ceylon White ‘Golden Tips’ tea

Loose leaf · From Nuwara Eliya region

This tea is a special type of ‘Gold Tips’ White Tea and has undergone a very special, careful process to give it its fine, splendid flavour. Ceylon Gold harvested from a young tea bush before the buds have opened. From there, the buds are dried in natural sunlight, allowing the tips to maintain their velvety golden colour. Since the young buds are so delicate, they are handled with the utmost care. This tea is from an estate in Hatton in Nuwara Eliya. It is western high grown and displays a brownish gold colour in the cup. This fine tea boasts a light, fine, tart flavour that we can only attribute to the time and care dedicated to harvesting and processing this tea.

I usually enjoy white tea, but don’t drink it often for some reason. True to this pattern, I was eager to try a Sri Lankan white, but I’m posting this as my penultimate review for this company. Thanks to Teakruthi for the sample. I steeped two teaspoons of leaf in a 355 ml mug at 190F for 4.5, 6, and 10 minutes.

The dry aroma of these small, dark, not very typical white tea leaves is of autumn leaf pile and something tart. The first steep has notes of tart rhubarb, herbs, malt, autumn leaf pile, honey, and florals. The liquor is quite drying. The second steep is less tart and has a hint of rose, in accordance with Teakruthi’s description. The final steep is tart, floral, drying, and malty.

This is a pleasant if unusual white tea that’s more assertive than many similar teas from other countries. I can see people who don’t usually opt for white tea really liking this, as the malt and honey make it more akin to a black tea. While I can’t see myself drinking this regularly, I think its divergence from other white teas is fascinating.

Same here…I enjoy white tea but don’t drink it that much. Good thing it ages well.

Exactly! Unlike green tea, which I also don’t tend to drink.

Gongfu!

Thank you very much to teakruthi for providing this sample! I decided to try it Gongfu as that’s how I would normally prepare any silver needle/bud style white tea for myself. It was a solid session, but I do feel I’d have gotten a stronger impression of the overall flavours present were I just drinking it Western style, so I will keep that in mind for when I revisit this tea.

Here’s my write up from instagram:

Gongfu at work this morning; complete with kiwi berries to snack on! Sipped away at one of the samples provided by teakruthi – Ceylon Gold. Full bodied and dark for a bud composed white tea – notes of malt, buckwheat honey, watered down molasses, and cocobolo. The fruit didn’t really work with the tea, so I just brewed out the leaf and then ate my morning snack instead of having them together…

I actually brewed out this tea during the session – ok like for this style; around eight or nine ok steeps, and one pretty crappy one right at the end, which is when I decided to call the session.
