I was excited for this tea. I got a sample from DavidsTea and made myself a pot this morning. The leaves are white-green (more white) and have little white fur on them. There were no gold flecks in them. After infusion the rolls did not come undone and the leaves only became slightly darker. I used 167 degree water and steeped for 4 mins and 30 secs. The scent was distinctly floral and the liquor was light yellowish white. The aroma was light as was the flavour. It tasted distinctly floral, then grassy and then very sweet (nectarine even). Lastly it had a bittersweet after taste which makes me think the quality of leaves might not be very good. I liked the lightness and delicacy of the initial taste but the excessively sweet and slightly bitter aftertaste was not my cup of tea (hahha forgive the pun). I do not like sweet teas (chai being an exception). I might try a different brand of this tea to see if it was the quality of leaves that made me dislike it or just the type of tea itself but I will never repurchase from DavidsTea.
