Tea type: white tea Brand: Chariteas
How to prepare it: 2-4 minutes, 75-85°C (170-185 °F)
Dry scent: Just like honey, sweet and sugary. It gets on with floral and fruity peach notes. Few slight and smooth herbal notes come up then. In the end you can spot some unexpected spicy note.
At first seems to be closer to a Pai Mu Tan, but it’s a bit more sophisticated:
sweet honey, herbal and even some tannins notes give structure to the brew. Still it has some fruity hints, that may be peach or even pear. The spicy note from before has ceased.
Smooth and gentle. Full-bodied. At first you get the same wildflower-honey flavor, then herbal notes evolve into woody ones, but without any bitterness or astringency. It’s a very sweet tea; it’s just like somebody really put a teaspoon of honey into my cup. At the end a slight hint of pear emerges.
It’s an excellent tea. It has nothing in common with the aforementioned Pai Mu Tan. In my opinion this tea plays in a different league. If you love the Pai mu tan, then give a try to this one: you’ll get crazy for it.
