From white2tea

Our 2021 Tiltshift is an extremely bud heavy picking of yueguangbai, a shade dried white tea from Yunnan province. This is a light and easy to drink white tea with a smooth body and sweet aftertaste. The aroma is soft and inviting, as is the tea. A lovely daily drinker.

Each purchase is for one ~ 7 gram ball.

I had a mood for gongfu, but today is another too hot day and white tea dragonball sounds like a delight. 10 seconds rinse.

1st steep, 20 seconds
Very bright brew, smells after freshly cut yellow melons, with hints of camphor, a bit citrusy. The brew tastes still quite weak, however first notes have started to appear, bunch of fruit flavours, stonefruits with hint of lemon maybe? Interesting mouthfeel, very mouthcoating with some kind of film coating all the mouth. Also there are some nice sweet notes in the background.

2nd steep, 20 seconds
Much stronger previous notes, yellow melon being very prominent, citrus notes in background. The ball has fell apart.

3rd steep, 25 seconds
Just a little increment because broken ball. Now it is indeed very citrusy, but with combination of white tea notes – read: hay, meadow, smooth and creamy notes, followed with stonefruits in aftertaste.

4th steep, 30 seconds
Stonefruit notes, a little unripe peach, honeydew, with meadow, hay-like aftertaste, with long mouthfeel, again “the film coating” feeling.

5th steep, 45 seconds
Is it almost gone? This steep was weirdly weak, with hay notes only and meadow flowers in aroma. Nice, but it is certainly noticeable it’s running out of flavours.

6th steep, 55 seconds
Indeed gone. I am surprised to see it lasts only 6 steeps. But on the other hand, I ran out of water in my thermos too. So, maybe it’s just a good timing.

I decided to see how this does as a sort of western/grandpa/extra lazy steep in the tea press. It wasn’t awful but it lost almost all the wild tropical fruity magic it had during gongfu steeping. I got hints of the powdery vanilla deliciousness now and then and but nothing like I was getting gongfu. It was sort of “just tea” flavor instead an intense fresh fruit juice experience. It was okay for mindlessly drinking all day and didn’t clash with any snacks or meals but disappointing when I know this tea can taste so much better.
