Light fuzzy needles of Fujian joy! Lovely Pale yellow ivory in color. Delicate floral aromas which yield to a soothing sweetness highlighted with notes of honey and lemon peel. Palate is much the same as the aroma with the addition of a slight musk and a juicy brisk finish which recalls the acid of the lemon notes and balances the sweetness perfectly. Flavors change as the tea cools, with notes of fresh cucumber coming into play and enhancing the overall experience. Multiple steepings are possible here, which is good because this in not an inexpensive tea. All this being said, this is a “I am in the mood for really good white tea” kind of experience and not an everyday tea in my opinion which makes purchasing a small amount a good choice.

A Food and Beverage professional for over 15 years in Chicago Illinois and professional musician. Studying tea, along with wine, beer, spirits and food has been a lifetime passion.
Aside from my service profession I am a private music teacher and music director for multiple music ensembles including The Chicago Zither Orchestra.
Pastimes include composing instrumental music, collecting and listening to historical and rare classical music recordings, gourmet cooking and enjoying the sport of baseball.

Tea: I am really into a wide variety of teas. I tend to avoid flavored teas but will try herbal teas. If I had to list favorites I am a fan of Japanese shaded green teas, Darjeeling 1st flushes, Assam 2nd flushes, Pu-erh (sheng and shou), Oolongs and delicate refined whites. I really do not have a favorite tea, just as I do not have a favorite food, wine, artist or composer… as there are just far too many enjoyable variables and differences that can be “my favorite” depending on the context.

Feel free to private message me about whatever.
