Having a slightly-aged white tea from July 2020, white monkey paw varietal from wild old bushes, after having a June 2022 version a little while ago.

Both very nice... The 2022 was bright, refreshing, starting on lemony freshness and delicate flowers before becoming deeper, more herbal, then more honeyed and later some spices, all with a lively mouthfeel.

Today's 2020 started with a savoury aroma but with pears and pastry on the palate, equally fresh on the aftertaste, and then darker fruits and jams in later infusions but maintaining a nice bright mouthfeel and aftertaste.

I need to drink and age more white tea, it seems...

Saw a bit of wild white here in months gone by.

Here is some more non-assamica bug bitten spider webbed wild stuff from big old Yunnan forest trees.

It has that zing on the tongue.
