I give this 5 stars for its price and taste I’ll be honest the aroma is faint but the taste is definitely worth more than it be sold for if you ask me I would expect $15 more dollars for such a tea and it last quite a bit gongfu style you buy this tea you won’t regret
Raw, the tea did not smell as pleasant. Once steeped, the aroma was very nice with a sweet honey-like and floral smell to it. The taste is light with a bit earthiness, and a reminder of sweetness to it. Very good change of taste from what i usually drink.
The aroma is strong enough you smell it through the paper. Very pungent and sharp that peaked my curiosity even more so. Impressed with the packaging. They put it inside a sealed bag you can store to keep from light and potential moisture. the bag also has the English label. The cake is about 4 inches in diameter. Full leaves, dark color similar to Puher leaves. (supposedly aged for 8 years) you CAN tell it is aged because the leaves maintain a "dry" texture even after steeping. They don't get "spongy" they remain stiff.
Tea liquor is very light at first in color and clean. The sharp aroma pulls through the flavor profile. It is an earthy sweetness, but with a tangy punch due to aging. Unique profile for a white tea. I've been on a white tea kick for a while. This is a big contrast from a green leaf white tea like from Tian Hu Shan (also a good tea) For the price, it's very much worth the adventure. Not top grade, but definitely interesting. I would recommend this if you are a fan of aged teas. I have actually updated to add that I just purchased ANOTHER cake to store for the future.
Lida sent me a free sample of this tea. I loved and started craving it, so I ordered a cake of my own. Beautiful aroma and mood generator. Thank you I recommend.
This is a very special white tea. I brew it Gongfu style in a gaiwan, as I brew my other teas -- pu-ehr, oolong and green. For this tea, about 4 mg in a 100 ml gaiwan, at about 205℉, works best for me. If you're also a serious tea lover, you'll appreciate the fruity aroma and the smooth, fruity flavor. And at this price it's an excellent value.
