This is the first white tea cake I’ve bought. I do not have a proper pu er knife so hopefully the pieces I break off with my hands/ kitchen knife work just as well flavor-wise. After doing a quick rinse there isn’t much to the aroma on the wet leaves. A bit disappointing. The first two steeps have been the same. I’m not finding much to rave about. In fact, this is a rather boring rave. You showed up to the silent rave and they have no more headphones boring. Perhaps I am doing something wrong. I guess I was expecting something more, even the usual farm notes. But like any good tea drinker, you know you must have patience. Tea takes time to fully unfold sometimes. Sometimes it needs to wake up. Wait. I think this is the third steeping now. I’ve left it in for a bit longer. There are some sweet notes. Peaches. Maybe a bit of mangos. A slightly sweet bread aroma. And now on the 5th… maybe 6th?… CITRUS! Lemony and slight candied orange. What is going on? This was unexpected. And a bit of ripe tree bark. A bit of creamy notes in this next steep. Not heavy but an almost buttery note that comes at the end. Sweet lemon candy aroma on the wet leaves. Truly fascinating.
