"Red Jade" White Tea

by abnyc » Jan 22nd 18 3:29 pm

I have about 96g of this (https://www.taiwanteacrafts.com/product ... -white-tea) unusual white tea, made with Red Jade (TRES #18) varietal leaves. It's a solid, moderately priced, interesting tea. The vendor says that it is fully handmade, which is obviously simpler for a white. I overpurchased thinking I would love it, but it's just not for me. It's intensely savory/umami, with a thick mouthfeel, and retains that "menthol" flavor that characterizes the red tea made from this cultivar. Something tells me this would appeal to many green tea aficionados.

Would anyone like to trade it for something moderately priced but good quality that they don't see themselves drinking? I'd hate to see it go to waste! I'm a fan of oolongs, reds, and (usually) whites, but am open to suggestions.

I liked this tea very much after trying a sample, then bought a kilo! (plan to age some and see if it changes to better or worse.) :D

It's totally a good tea, just not to my taste. Anyone want it?
