Leaf Type: White
Where to Buy: Octavia Tea
Grown high in the mountains of one of the world’s premier tea gardens, Glendale Estate is a truly remarkable tea. Cinnamon-colored leaves yield a golden-brown liquor. Fresh, woodsy notes reminiscent of an alpine meadow give way to undertones of warm spice and port wine. Savor this tea sip after sip.
- White tea
This tea is made from 100% natural ingredients.
This is a rather unique white tea. It tastes much more like an Oolong than most of the white teas that I’ve ever tasted. It reminds me of a lighter version of a Bai Hao Oolong. It has similar fruit notes and a honey-esque finish. The mouthfeel is deliciate, smooth and soft.
It is an incredibly delicious white tea. In addition to the fruit and honey notes, I can also taste a nutty quality as well as a faint hint of raw wood. Like I said – it’s very unique. I like it very much!
I was a little sad when I visited the Octavia Tea website and was unable to locate this tea. I know that they’ve made some changes to their website and the look of their label, so I hope that the omission of this tea is a temporary one… because you really should try it!
