Some baimu dan from 2018 wich was a gift from a friend who made a trip in china, usually brew it gong fu cha at 90-95 degree in a porcelain vessel but also tried it grandpa style, in a zisha mug, still very good!
Fruity and honeysh yet with a slight woodsy dark tone, quite intense.

Had the most wonderful surprise of a white tea yesterday: a little something I bought on impulse at the Taipei tea trade fair last weekend, a Taiwanese made organic white tea from Thailand.

It’s quite apparently organic in the typical bug bitten honey notes only these teas have. It is impossible to brew too long and kept going for almost 12 rich and flavourful rounds! The vendor had offered me of what he said almost spent leaves brew - it was still very nice I knew it must be very good tea.

Expensive though. Not quite the level of a comparable oriental beauty, but still more expensive than most premium Taiwanese teas. Being from Thailand it should be a lot cheaper than local tea. Anyways, worth to spend that on a treat if a 50g bag... I’d like to get a jin of it though :)

Back to this white tea. You know a tea is good when you crave for it the next day...

Congratulations on your discovery! I never found a good white tea from Thailand. I never found any tea there that is good for more than several infusions. Enjoy!

For the longest time me neither... White teas had always been a sad affair for me in the past.
