There is no easy way to say this. Actually, there is. I’m not looking forward to trying this tea out. Maybe I feel bad saying so because it was a gift. But I’ve had my share of loose leaf whites and this is…. the bottom of the pile. It literally looks like the bottom of the tea leaf pile. Everything else was harvested but they didn’t want to just toss this. Harvesting and processing is hard work you know! But still, the coloring is dull. It’s so broken. Might as well be in a bag.
Sorry. Let’s taste.
The aroma doesn’t do it any justice either. Dull. Though with slight orchard notes. So not a complete waste. The wet aroma is very earthy. Compost, wet leaves, musty wet wood. But you really, I am really, have to stick your nose in the leaves to get the aroma.
Let me clean my nose off.
So now we taste. The liquor is much darker than I would expect for a white but considering the color of the leaves, it doesn’t surprise me. Clear, dark, amber. The taste is not pleasant. Drinkable but I am not enjoying this session. It is bland. Medicinal. Meh…

Sounds like a shou mei. The first one I got was a gift and I literally wondered if it was a prank at first! It was actually pretty good, though, for something that looked like the pile left after you rake the yard and there are still bits on the ground that you can’t get up.

I’ve been there! Stuck with a lot of oolong that was a gift yet difficult to drink.

Tea is a way of life. The more you drink tea, the more you learn about tea. I’m mostly a purist but also a bit of a tea adventurist. If there is a new tea or brand to be discovered I will try it out. I love every type save for dark teas which I just can’t seem to take a fancy to. The only ones I usually refuse to try are green tea and citrus mixes. Just nope.

I’m a stay at home mom who loves gardening, exploring, and being with my family.
