From Bitterleaf Teas

Back by popular demand, this Lincang region Shoumei grade white tea offers a rich drinking experience in a budget package.

The fragrance is floral, with a weighted texture and thick mouthfeel to keep it grounded.

Made from the same Yunnan big leaf material that is usually used for puer, this tea carries over the trait of withstanding multiple infusions before slowing down. Once it does start to fade, we recommend boiling this tea to extract a sweet and warming brew.

White Crow is a delightfully aromatic white tea that I am almost positive will age gracefully. It brews quite dark for a fresh tea, but it’s still safely within the white tea category.

The dry leaf aroma is nice – sweet and floral, but the real party for the scent receptors comes after the rinse. There is a kind of nutty, spicy, floral note I am familiar with from Silver needle teas. Underneath it, there hides a complex bouquet reminiscent of burnt food, roasted corn, bread toast, black cherry, cranberry, and others.

The liquor tastes more savoury than it smells. It has a very nice tartness as well as flavours of wood, nutmeg, apricot, light hay, and honeysuckle. After swallowing, one is presented with a strong expansive aftertaste that comes with a cooling and drying sensation predominately in the throat. It has a sweet & sour character with a noticeable muscovado sugar flavour. Texture-wise, the liquor feels quite light in the mouth and is somewhat bubbly I’d say.
