Tea Review: Enchanting White Tea (Kaley Tea)

Enchanting White Tea
Kaley Tea
Type: Black
Origin: Sri Lanka, Kotapola
Product Description:
Selectively handpicked young buds are sundried over a few days and packed without further human touch.
Temperature: 175° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 5 minutes

The dry leaves have an aroma of oats and wood with a hint of fruit.

The golden liquor has an aroma of warm stone fruit with a hint of pepper.  The taste has notes of stone fruit with a hint of green vine and sunflower seeds and a long fruity finish.

This tea was lovely, light, and fruity with no astringency.  Steeping for 5 minutes produced the best results, though it is still nice if understated when steeped for a shorter time.

Kaley Tea is located in a forested, lowland region of southern Sri Lanka, adjacent to the Sinharaja Forest Reserve, a tropical rainforest and UNESCO World Heritage Site. They specialize in organically grown teas plucked from 100-year-old tea trees and hand-processed in limited batches.

This tea was provided as a free sample without guarantee of a review.
