GAH!
I can't find it anywhere!
I made a thread about it in white tea board and its been ignored.
I looked around.
Its all out of stock!
:evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:
Geez I'm losing my cool here.
When does Agadio get it in stock?
Its already a bit past mid-summer!
Anyone know where I can find some?

Moved this to White Tea. With this more descriptive title, I am sure you will receive better response.

How does it taste?

Maybe I'm out of practice with my brewing but, I find this tea to be really bland. I've brewed it 5 different times and they all had the same bland result. I've googled the brewing instructions and it didn't do anything.
I starting to think I got ripped off. :(

This tea is very light;) You have to brew this tea in big teapot(I use 600ml) When i pour to teapot 6/7 gram of tea, it is almost full. And I like use 75 degree(Im from Poland so I use Celsius scale) and brew 5 minute. Second brew +85 degree and 5 minute too. This tea is very delicate. I hope I helped;) How does it taste. Delicate flavor, subtle. When I drink this tea I feel it's Darjeeling. Brew white tea is difficult coz leaf this teas are very sensitive and if u use a little warmer water u burn leaf.

Sorrry for my language but my english is not good;) I hope u understand

Now I drink Ya Bao Yesheng. This tea is called whit pu-ehr. "Ya bao" thats mean "bud which is a treasure". Thats tea is from Shi Zi mountain in Wu Ding County. Thats Yunnan;)

1st brew 90 degree and 1,5 minute
2nd brew 98 degree and 3 minute
3rd brew 98 degee and 6 minute

Delicious tea. Is sweet and little spicy simultaneously. Tastes like pine needles with a cedar and watermelon taste in the background. And some vanilla taste.

Beautiful, right?

I hope U understand me.

You could try searching for my thread from 2009 :D

viewtopic.php?f=5&t=9483

But you also might want to be more specific. Are you only interested in white Darjeeling from any year...say a year old?, or does it need to be 2011 only? Does it absolutely need to be First Flush?

If not limited to FF, then there are some famous SF you might want:

2011 SF Castleton Moonlight
Quick Overview
This world famous Castleton white tea represents one of the best white tea offerings from this renowned Darjeeling garden. Its fruity flavour with a very slight tinge of muscatel makes it a unique tea for tea connoisseurs. Compared to other Darjeeling white teas, it has a lingering freshness that accentuates the flavour. A definite try for Darjeeling tea lovers


a 'few' links below you might want to look @ ...teawalker's review also, can't recall which link, but one of the vendors has 2 user reviews of the white tea...spicy?

^that site seems to be down a lot, more than TC at night :) , but when it's working they show it in stock, not excessively expensive.

Where did the OP go? TC has a lot less traffic, it seems, than it did a few years ago???

Inspired by my own post, I might order some of those to try :)
