Taster’s Review:

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!

Our mutual love for tea and writing about it inspired us to start this blog so that we could better share this love with others.

One thing I (Anne) learned very early on in my career as a tea artist is that everyone has different preferences, and every single tea tastes differently on every single palate.  So just because one of us doesn’t happen to like a tea, doesn’t mean that YOU (the reader) will not.

We try to be as impartial as we can.  We do have our favorites.  We are human.  But we do our very best to be as fair and as honest about a tea as we can be.

You might not agree with my assessment – or with Jennifer’s assessment – of a tea.  But that’s OK… if we all liked the same exact tea – we’d only need ONE kind of tea and … wow… that sounds really boring, indeed!

What a beautiful world it is that we have so many teas to suit so many tea enthusiasts!
