Ma Wei Moonlight White from Hugo Tea was soft and floral with a hint of brown sugar sweetness. Think wildflowers rather than hothouse orchid.
Songyi Tea Shanlinshi was grown on Longfeng Gorge in Nantuo. The taste was floral with a prominent note of toasted sesame seed. Yum!
8 Immortals was floral with a grounded quality that I really enjoyed. This tea is a must try for those who are new to Phoenix oolongs.
Jinggu Spring Buds from Upton Tea Imports is a wonderfully sweet and complex white tea from Yunnan. Think of it as a beefier version of Silver Needle!
Rather than being a deep shade of green, the dry leaf was incredibly pale in color. I've never seen a Japanese tea that looked quite like this.
Buttery and soft with hints of a vanilla and hyacinth, this Shan Lin Xi from Zhao Zhu hit the spot. I couldn't stop smelling the dry leaves!
