Sipdown! (not including in count since it wasn’t entered in my cupboard)
So I have a variety of single white tea coins from white2tea, most of which I ordered as a sampler set a couple of years ago. But this one was (I think) a free sample? I’m also not positive which year it is, as the coin only has the image on the front with no text. But I ordered in early 2019, and the other teas in my order were 2018 teas, so I’m going to assume this one is as well? (shrugs)
Anyway, steeping this grandpa-style today in a glass tumbler. It seems quite generic to me? And that’s not to say it isn’t pleasant, just not very exciting. It’s mellow with mostly hay, straw, light wood, and raw grain notes. A bit of dried apricot and some astringency in the finish. And that’s about it really.
Fine for mindless sipping, but quite unremarkable. :) I think I have a coin from the sampler that’s the 2017 pressing, hopefully that one is a bit more… something.
