A nice springtime treat. Has a balance of earthy, sweet, and floral notes that is just like digging around in the garden on a spring day! The tea seems to have aged nicely over the past 2-3 years, and brings some interesting notes you won’t find in fresh-picked whites.
The flavors evolved nicely from nice, deep honey notes, to hints of fruit blossom, to pleasant earthy nuttiness. Good complexity, and a nice tea to show off white tea’s potential for aging.
Taste: SWEET: honeysuckle, dark honey, light caramel; EARTHY: light incense/sandalwood, milky black breakfast blend tea, fall leaves; FRUIT: later steeps reveal cherry and plum flavors, fruit blossom; NUT: final steeps have an earthy woodiness that transform pleasantly to almond and pecan notes.
