I am drinking this tea today for maybe the first or second time only. I can’t believe i have never written a review about it…
So this is a rolled white tea that is similar to the jasmine white pearl I also like from Red Blossom. Instead it is scented with osmanthus. I have done several steeps in the gaiwan today .
I get a light yellow tea liquor with this one. It really only needs to be steeped for about 30 seconds. It has a light, cornsilk, buttery type of flavor and while the osmanthus is present, I would say it is fairly subtle in this blend. That is good news for me, as I don’t like overly flowery teas. It has a bit of sweetness but I actually like this with a tiny bit of coconut sugar as well.
There must be something about osmanthus that relaxes you because I find this very soothing when my nerves are feeling stressed out and I’m a bit hyper. Also brings a happy feeling. I am definitely glad to have this in my tea collection!
Flavors: Butter, Corn Husk, Floral, Osmanthus
