Tea Review: Fu Ding Bai Cha White Tea Brick (2000) (The Chinese Tea Shop)

Fu Ding Bai Cha White Tea Brick (2000)
The Chinese Tea Shop
Type: White
Origin: China, Fujian Province, Fuding
Product Description:  Incredibly deep and long lasting aroma. Buttery and fruity fragrance.

Temperature: 208° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaves have an aroma reminiscent of hay and dates.

The golden infusion has a mellow aroma of baked fruit and something that reminded me of buttery pie crust.  The taste is mellow with notes of baked fruit and a hint of honey.

Steeping at 195° F for 5 minutes provided pleasantly mild results with hints of fruit in the aroma and taste.  I most enjoyed the results when steeping at 208° F and found that the color, flavor, and aroma deepened with each infusion.  I would expect even more depth of flavor using more leaf.  

This tea was purchased by me.
