From The Tea House - Covent Garden

A light white Chinese loose leaf tea which is very low in caffeine.

Delicate leaves from Guang Xi Province with sweet nutty flavour.

Plump and tender, needle-shaped buds are carefully selected to produce this very delicate white tea

The names derives from the appearance of the buds which are plucked when they are barely emerging and are covered in silvery “white down”.
It originates in the “Lin Yun” county of the Guang Xi province in southern China.

Our Lin Yun White Downy brews to a bright and delicately yellow liquor. The flavour is very slightly nutty, yet sweet and mellow.

When you make your white tea it is important to make sure that the water is not too hot and that it is not steeped for too long.

This, my friends, is a gulpable by accident one. As in, “wow, I like the taste of this enough it causes lack of pause”.

It is very smooth, a fair bit smoky without being intense, more than. Medium. Mouth feel, a slight hay sweetness.

The flavour is soft golden I’d say. Wow like this one.

A lot of body and taste for a white still maintaining that slight feeling of delicacy.

My measurements on grams to. Water are rough due to on the go life.
