i've noticed white bingcha seems more and more popular. especially in gift shops.
i have had a few of them and was not impressed, but this one is pretty good.
.....
it is a lot like oriental beauty with a fresh medjool date note. i got the idea to grab one from the fridge after tasting the tea.
Wow, your Oribe glaze guinomi by Noritada Kimura looks awesome next to Sou Yamada’s blue kyusu, awesome pairing. I bet Sou will look great next to Akira’s guinomi as well. Sunday I had an aged white tea that also had notes of date and plum fruit and sweet flowers. That’s a big date :) .

I was admiring exactly that juxtaposition of colors, and thinking that the date gives shows how remarkably small and delicate the teapot is.

The fruity floral white I had was a 2007 Shou Mei White Tea Cake, it also had a pleasant viscosity and was very smooth. It is also from Fuding area of Fujian province. Some of the leaves were really furry white.

Bai hao Yin Zhen 2017 from Panxi. Not a top grade but it's funny to discover different tasting notes changing a little bit the temperature.

luchayi, I also enjoy playing with parameters sometimes. Often it is middle grade teas that are best for playing because preparing the very best ideally is so rewarding, one may not want to have an imperfect round of tea with a bad idea. Cheers

I'm not really a fan of white teas but got the chance to try my first shoumei, White Crow, from Bitterleaf's Full House sampler pack. Using 4g/50ml at 100ºC gives me a more relaxed session than the usually experience of a Bai Mu Dan. It is perfect for boiling later and pushing it gives a warm sweetness that is not overpowering. Quite satisfied with it.

I'm drinking the Ding Ye "Lao Bai Cha" 2010 baimudan from Yunnan Sourcing. Really rich, with deep flower notes intact. Also really relaxing. Not sure if it's "7 years treasure" but it's certainly enjoyable.
