$7.25

White Gold is a beautifully crafted bi luo chun style white tea from the Yunnan province of China. This was picked in the early spring and consists of lovely downy buds. The aroma is intoxicating and fresh, with edamame, honeysuckle, and cream. The smooth and sweet taste opens with oats, edamame, and melon, flowing into cream and fresh garden sage. A bright citrus note appears near the end of the sip…I note it as a hint of lime leaf. The finish is beautifully floral, with honeysuckle, orchid, and a touch of white pepper. The finish lingers for quite some time with the slightest astringency, bringing forth a beautiful warm spruce note.  

A lovely white tea with tons of complexity and vibrant, strong and active mouthfeeling!
