Another finally opened pouch.
But I am sitting here and trying to write a tasting note and… nada. I feel so off-track recently when it comes to tea. The leaves are looking so beatuful, the pictures are true to reality. Wild grown, organic, white tea from Georgia is something unique I just had to order, even it is one of the most expensive teas I have in my collection.
I did two western steeps. First one was rather long, so it gets quite a thick texture, but filled with nice peachy note and a bit of other stonefruits. Then some minerality appears. It was quite an unique experience. I even used maybe too much leaf, about 4-5 grams (my accurate scale ran out of batteries).
Second steep, of same leaves, is very different though and honestly probably even better. It was a bit shorter steep, around only 3 minutes (maybe even that was too much) and a bit colder water maybe as well. It get some herbal note I think, but not offensive in any way, maybe honeyish a bit as well. It is more floral as well. Are those meadow flowers? Proabably so.
Flavors: Floral, Flowers, Herbaceous, Honey, Mineral, Peach, Stonefruit
