I have bought three of those balls. And today, I finally bit the bullet and tried first one.
I like aged white teas. Pressed white teas. But this… this was sadly a dismal.
I took one of that balls and prepared in grandpa way. I know it isn’t the best for all the flavour profiles and delicate steepings, but it was… old.
I know, it’s 8 years old tea. But it was weak in flavours. There weren’t any fresh taste, naturally. No peaches, no stonefruits, nothing from those. It was like a washed out black tea. It was smooth though. But so boring. Not sure if I want to try second in gongfu or both I should send to Leafhopper who was looking for white teas… or just let it be and see if another day is a better day. But for the price, I am not impressed.
