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!
