From Moychay

Made in Nannoushan, Menghai County. Harvest spring 2022.

In appearance: large, brown-green leaves and silvery buds with thin cuttings. The fragrance is restrained, floral-herbaceous. The liquor is transparent, with a shade of white grapes.

The bouquet of brewed tea is fresh, floral with notes of spicy herbs. The aroma is tender, berry-floral. The taste is refined and soft, sweetish, with mint coolness, refreshing berry sourness and lingering finish.

Brew tea with hot water (85°C) in a porcelain gaiwan or a teapot of porous clay. The proportion is 6 g per 100 ml. The time of the first steeping is about 7 seconds. After that do short steeps (just for 3-5 seconds), increasing steeping time for each subsequent step, if necessary. You can steep the tea up to 6-7 times.

«Crystal White» tea is a great choice to refresh the mind and energize the body.

Tried this tea for first time with western steeping method, though apparently the gongfu is much better. It’s recommended on the bag (a huge one as it is very fluffy), but as well as in the description of tea.

It is a tea from Nannoushan, Menghai and last year harvest. I have been aware of harvest year before buying it but decided for that anyway as I actually almost ran out of white teas, which are perfect in hot days. They are thing of the past too, as mornings are indeed autumn like and afternoons are still warm, but not hot.

I took for my steeping method 5 grams which filled my strainer absolutely, filled the mug with a few minutes rested boiling water (definitely not measured) and well I can really agree with the description again.

White grape colour of the brew, with somehow berry-like aroma and floral, meadow notes. I disagree with fresh notes but yep, it’s year old tea. Also some notes of spices… green ones as a bit of cardamom, green peppercorns are there, if searched for.

Flavour was, suprisingly quite fruity as noticed by vendor too; sweetish and smooth. Very mouthcoating, and long aftertaste.

Wonderful tea, with much to explore in gongfu steeping. Certainly going to try next time!
