Commercial Description

This special, hand-selected tea contains silvery-white unopened leaf tips. White tea is the least processed of all teas and is steamed immediately after picking to prevent any oxidation of the leaves. This particular tea is very smooth with delicate floral notes. The liquor is golden and has a light body. Truly a remarkably pleasant and drinkable tea.

Dry leaf is beautiful, but not very aromatic. Looks like a bai mu dan (white peony) by leaf shape and size, but a shou mei by the darker leaf color.

Upon brewing, there's a fleeting suggestion of lemon in the aroma, but when I drink it, the flavor and aroma are subdued. Aroma is mostly of caramel and autumn leaves. A little bit like a Bai Hao oolong but with more interesting vegetal undertones.

Extremely smooth flavor and syrupy mouthfeel: thick but with little astringency or bitterness.

Brewed a second cup that was no less flavorful than the first, but required a long steeping to extract the flavor.

While I would prefer this to Bai Hao oolong, by quite a lot, it struck me as too similar for my liking: too smooth, not enough kick. Priced reasonably for a tea this exotic, especially given that it is both organic and fair trade certified, but I found the flavor boring. It was interesting to try, but I don't think I'd buy it again.
