Aged Pai Mu Tan White Tea (White Peony King) from 2005 spring
First infusion tastes like dark chocolate, Chinese red dates, cooked cherries, with a very thick consistency.
Infusions 2-3: Chocolate flavor remains, but less dark and thick than with the first infusion. The tea becomes clearer and less cloudy than the first infusion. The fruity taste is emphasized more, like cooked cherries, apricots and Chinese red dates.
Infusions 3-10: sweet, fruity and flowery, reminiscent of apricots and red dates, mixed with a light Chinese herbal tea. A little tobacco taste can also be felt. With each infusion, the taste becomes purer and less complicated.
