From white2tea

A hand roasted bamboo version of our 2019 Nightfall is a commissioned yueguangbai,which is a shade dried white tea from Yunnan province. This production was made entirely of old arbor tea that is usually destined to be raw Puer tea. If you are accustomed to drinking yueguangbai teas with a bud heavy picking standard, you may notice that this tea has a lot of larger leaves; this is because when you make an old arbor tea you want to pick whatever the trees are giving and not waste a bit of it. The bamboo processing of this tea means that the leaves are broken up, so the tea will brew faster and stronger due to the increased surface area.

This tea has a thick enduring aroma and flavor with a hefty, silky body. The base character of the tea has been wonderfully integrated with the roasted flavors and sweet aroma of the bamboo.

Sipdown! (68 | 272)

Another generous swap sample from an Instagram tea friend!

I’ve been sipping on this grandpa-style this morning, in a glass tumbler. I always make the mistake of using water that’s too warm at the beginning, and then it steeps for a long time before it’s drinkable for me… XD

Luckily this tea can’t really oversteep so it’s still lovely. Very earthy with plenty of musty hay and wet wood notes. It’s like a lovely combination of moody forest petrichor and sunny barn loft. Interwoven is a soft dried apricot flavor, more tart than sweet but with a nice richness to it. A hint of pepper perhaps? I do feel like I’m tasting the bamboo, as a sort of sweet grassy-woody note.

So pleasant, and still going now at 2 PM! I predict that I will give up before the tea does, ha ha…
