From Whittard of Chelsea

An exquisitely delicate white tea picked at the very first signs of spring in China´s Fujian Province. Tea harvesters select the two youngest leaves and a single silvery bud from each branch, creating a supremely fresh and lightly fragranced tea with a hint of spring morning sweetness.

It´s for teas like this that I appreciate my water boiler with temperature control between 60 and 100ºC. To be brewed with water at 80ºC? No problem.
But, although it makes drinking white and green teas a lot simpler and straight-forward, I managed to forget about this tea for quite a while.

On the little card Whittard´s adds to the tea pack, it says the tea is “a supremely fresh and lightly fragranced tea with a hint of spring morning sweetness”. Indeed, in nose the loose tea is quite delicate with a sweet touch to it. In mouth it´s very easy going and light, nice enough without the grassy aspect of a lot of green teas, or the strength of most black teas. Honestly, I expected more from it.

Maybe today I’ll finally finish up the Whittard advent? I did pretty well to keep up in December, given that I only have two left, but I’ve definitely been snoozing on them. Time to change that!

This one’s day 20; a straight-up White Peony. Nothing particularly remarkable – it’s sweet and lightly creamy with those sugar water vibes that white tea has generally. Eminently drinkable, but not distinctive.
