Ageing does great things to oolongs and puerh, but this is the first aged white tea that I can recall trying. It seems like aged tea typically has a more ‘matured’ flavour, which I initially think will be good to balance out the sweetness in white tea. Let’s get to tasting and test out my hypothesis.
While I’m not the biggest fan of white tea, this the style of white tea I’d go for: it has a good amount of body, and it is not overly sweet. I’m guessing the ageing gives it the earthy, musty and grassy flavours that round the tea out. This tea is great value for money, and I think it would appeal to white tea lovers, as well as those keen on light green or first flush Darjeeling teas
