Margaret's Hope Exotic Spring White Tea

description

This spring pick has the impressive floral bouquet that one expects from - and loves about - Darjeeling’s famed AV2 clones. A heady but pleasant fragrance of lavender appears even as the tea steeps. A note of white tree fruit suggests brightness and balances the floral flavors perfectly.

the experience

liquor

aroma

Nectar-like, marked by the lifted fragrance of stone fruits, similar to apricot jam, and hints of vanilla sugar.

appearance

Pale yellow

taste

Velvety-smooth, immersive flavors of sweet flowers, like lavender, dominate the cup. The mouth attack is sweet and clean.The liquor gains strength in the middle, turning floral and voluminous almost instantly. These floral flavors are far more pronounced in the second steep. Easing down towards the end, the finish reflects light notes of tree fruits, particularly pear.

COMPLEMENTS

Salmon roll and Asian puddings.

dry leaf

aroma

Broad and fresh-smelling with elusive notes of white flowers and bell pepper in the attack and toasted cashew in release.

appearance

Powder green buds with downy hair and a scattering of olive green flakes.

infusion

aroma

Thick vegetal scent with hints of pulpy fruit.
