Tea Review: Yesheng Gushu Baicha (White2Tea)

2021 Yesheng Gushu Baicha
Type: White
Origin: China
Product Description:
Yesheng Gushu Baicha, literally translated as "wild ancient tree white tea", this tea comes from a wild varietal of tea leaf.

One of the most requested productions we have ever featured in any tea club, we were strong armed into producing this tea as a regular option, paying in early February this spring to secure the material.

A unique profile of bright wild vegetal flavors that drift between fresh cut cucumbers and a field of flowers in full bloom, simultaneously bitter and sweet. Whether or not those descriptions will fit your experience or not is anybody's guess. It is wildly difficult to pin this tea down and place into a box. Experience it for yourself.
Temperature: 190° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 2 minutes

The dry leaves have a spicy aroma with notes of papaya and pine needles.

The light yellow infusion has a sweet-tart aroma with papaya-like notes.  The taste has notes of papaya and pine needles.

The tasting profile for this tea was rather surprising, very aromatic and full-flavored with a nice mellowing by the third infusion.

This tea review was written in 2021. This tea was included  as part of a monthly tea club.
