|This is a solid white tea, with a robust sweetness and no astringency. However, it lacks the fresh vegetal flavor which I look for in white teas. This has likely been mellowed out by the aging process (current offering is 5 yrs old). I suspect that further aging may bring out more complexity.|
|Excellent white tea. Refreshing and smooth. One of my favorites.|
|The delivery was smooth and I received everything as ordered. I will review the quality of tea soon.|
|This is an excellent white tea. Fresh tasting with a great after taste.
|A very tasty, unique tea. I am very satsfied also concerning this one at TeaSpring!|
|Wow this is really delicious. It says that it is a great one to age but I donīt know if I can keep from drinking it. Very delicious,,,sort of tastes like marshmallow treat meats sweet clover. Second infusion is a bit stronger with a bit of toast on the marshmallow. This tastes like toasted marshmallow yummy!|
|Dry leaves are darker and larger than Fuding Yin Zhen. Brewed leaves give amber-coloured tea with woody and mineral taste with some slight dark peach-like taste. |
|Some of the best White Tea I have had! A very subtle taste with a great color. Delicious and worth every cent.|
|This tea is an excellent white tea- not too astringent like some, and with a smooth pleasant taste. The leaves are downy when dry and are the tender shoots.|
|This Shui Xian Bai Zhen tea was recommended to me by my tea friend, Karen, who has an extraordinary ability to find exquisite teas!
The hot version of this tea is very pleasant with no bitterness or astringency. However, it is the COLD-brewed variation of this tea that is remarkable! When this tea is chilled in the refrigerator for a few hours, the result is fragrant, sweet and has an extremely long linger of perfume.
In its cold form, this tea is elegant and lovely. It is a tea that I want to serve to guests! I am in Southern California and I will enjoy the chilled version of this tea all year.
|VERY pleased with this non-DBH, white-style "zhen." Itīs delicate without being insipid and unlike the DBH yin zhen I bought from another vendor this year (which I found a bit too robust), this one just keeps giving through many steepings. In fact, one needs to be careful for that very reason because over-brewing is possible, even in the 170š/77š range, which is unusual for a tea so minimally processed. Shui Xian Bai Zhen is a very well-made tea and I canīt imagine a fan of classic yin zhenīs failing to appreciate its virtues.|
