As you pour you’ll already be able to see the tea’s magnificent colour. Ranging from a dark straw to a medium dark champagne, this is a beautiful transparent colour.
The aroma is absolutely captivating, with a hint of damp straw and strawberry. This tea carries a very delicate muscatel flavour to it, which you might not normally find in other white teas.
What’s even more interesting is, this tea develops into being floral and somewhat fruity. They’re not words that we often use side by side when tasting tea. So take in the floral and fruity notes, but then notice how there is a nice, nutty length to it.
When you smell and taste your tea, why not use the Twinings flavour wheel and see what aromas and tastes you come up with. First of all, before your nostrils come close to the tea liquor, just smell the back of your hand as this helps to cleanse your palette.
