Got a 5 g sample of this in my mystery grab bag for the Chinese New Year.
It is incredible. The leaves are a vibrant green with the most delicate furry silver buds. Just on appearance alone I knew this would be a superior tea, doesn’t have the dry dead leaf look of some other Bai Mu Dans. It looks fresh and alive like a white tea should and it smelled floral and fragrant.
I brewed gongfu in a 120 ml gaiwan. The liquor was a beautiful bright yellow and had such an incredibly delicate velvety mouthfeel. It just felt so good so I let it linger there for a while. Very floral opener with an aftertaste of pure cane sugar. I felt like a kid sucking on a lollipop and I didn’t even have to get a shot. This is what I always imagined the Big Rock Candy Mountain would taste like.
All I can say is dreams do come true with places like Tea Drunk around.
