I'll start.

I prefer new white tea. I am generally a fan of lighter flavors, but I also find new white tea to be more complex and aromatic.

Aged white tea can also be good, but often I find it to be a little dry and dull. To me good aged white tea tastes of bread, while the majority of aged white tea seems like like bark.

I have the same preference. I much prefer fresh white tea to aged. I'm not a fan of the somewhat flat medicinal taste that aged white tea has.

I bought Feng Qing wild white (hojo) a couple of years ago, been drinking on and off and I find it has improved tremendously. So I guess I might prefer aged.
