First Impressions: Large brittle leaves, sweet grassy smell
Region: Fujian Province, China
Purchased at Samovar – $19 for 1.5oz when reviewed
A very delicate but flavorful white tea, this tea has a really smooth sweet aftertaste. Not nearly as grassy as I would have guessed based on the smell of the dry leaves. This would be a good first white tea to try if you are used to something a little darker. It shows of white tea’s high points without suffering from the lack of flavor they sometimes can have.
