This is a tea from the White2Tea subscription box. It is to say the least an interesting tea. It is by no means the best tea I have had nor is it the worst. It is the only aged white tea I have tried. It was very smooth. There was no bitterness or astringency to it. I am not entirely sure how to describe the main note of this tea. It was somewhat sweet. The thing that comes to mind is if you could take whiskey and remove all the kick from it and the alcohol too it might taste like this. That is the best description I can think of. I didn’t add sugar to this tea but was thinking about it. Next time I drink it I may try western brewing it and adding sugar. It does not matter if I recommend this tea or not as you can’t buy it anyway.
I steeped this tea ten times in a 120ml gaiwan with 5.3g leaf and boiling water. I gave it a 10 second rinse. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, 30 sec, 45 sec, and 1 min. If this tea was available for sale I don’t think I would be impressed enough to buy more of it. It did last well through ten steeps. And it was darker i color than any white tea I have had.
