From Yunnan Sourcing

A unique varietal of white tea grown in the high altitude mountains of Ai Lao range in the eastern part of Jing Dong County (Simao Prefecture).

The tea processing is something in-between white and green tea. It has a strong thick aroma and hints of sugarcane and wheatgrass.

The leaves are extremely fine and due to expert processing the small hairs on the leaf have been preserved.

A nice Yunnan white that is indeed a bit more grassy and green tea like as you would normally expect. It doesn’t stand out all that much, but it does have a very nice thick buttery texture and a balanced taste profile.

Dry leaves smell of nuts and hay, while wet leaf aroma is more sweet and floral, akin to tree sap and honey. Taste-wise, the tea reminds me of apples, green wood, pine, cream, asparagus, and grass. Aftertaste is then sweet and floral again. It is somewhat biting in the throat and at the same time mouth-drying without being astringent.
