type: white

origin: india

caffeine: light

price level: $$$$

White tea from the Darjeeling region of India. A rare treat from the Rohini estate, nestled along the picturesque slopes of the Himalayas. Similar in appearance to the White Peony tea of China, the Darjeeling version is equally sublime. This early spring tea offers young leaves and delicate unopened buds. Dry leaf aroma is crisp with hints of fruit and floral. The cup offers hypnotic honeysuckle and apricot blossom notes. Steep at 195°F for 3-5 minutes

      I followed the steeping instructions (3min at 190F), but I feel like maybe I should have steeped it less because this tea tasted very astringent. It wasn't my cup of tea, I guess.

      This tea is as delicate as the heavy butteriness will allow. It's rich and luxurious, coating the tongue and throat with every sip. It's sweet, a little floral, and goes down incredibly easy.

      Delicate white tea with complex flavors that change with each infusion (3-4). I steep 2 g of tea in 8 oz of 190°F water x 3 minutes. The tea is good without sweetner, but a drop of honey is nice, too.

      Nice flavor for a white tea. Very faint floral aromas that improved as the cup cooled. Dry, astringent finish.

      It is to my knowledge that white teas should be brewed for a minute due to their fragility. This tea was very astringent no matter how much sugar was added and no floral notes were detected at all.

      Good tea. A bit grassy. The flavors were improved with sweetener snd cream.

      Soft and sweet. This tea goes down smoothly and has you coming back for a second steep.

      Absolutely one of my favorite white teas in my collection! Wonderful crisp taste and aroma. Higher priced than many teas (whites tend to be higher-priced in general, in my experience), so I buy sparingly. Definitely experimenting with number of steeps so I can get as much flavor out of the amount of leaf I have left!
