drank Bai Mu Dan by Samovar
12 tasting notes

I don’t drink white teas often, so I don’t have much to compare this to. But it was very light and substantive at the same time. I had it at a Cafe Venetia and unfortunately they oversteeped it a bit, and my initial cup was a little too astringent, but the second steeping was just right.

Flavors: Corn Husk, Walnut
