Gongfu session!

Dry leaf smells like corn husk and sweet peas, after the first steep a little char character peeks out and the fresh sweet pea is more of a steamed green pea.

Maybe white teas aren’t my jam, I was pretty underwhelmed by this. First steepings were subtle and sweet with a peach-and-cantaloupe-fruitiness, green pea and steamed corn flavor. Later on the texture became just a little creamy with the corn sweetness strengthening and a little toasty char flavor to match the leaf aroma came into play. Not much on the nose throughout.

This was by no means bad, just a little on the subtle side for me today, I think. Maybe I’ll get a grandpa-style black brewing.

Edit: a later cold steep of this tea reveals a delightfully sweet plum and rosehip brew!

If I take a hot bath, am I making me-tea?
