In the history of UNYtea’s selection of rare and interesting teas this may just take the cake. A bug bitten white tea from japan to some sommeliers would be nothing but a myth but here we are. This amazing tea feels like a Taiwan white tea crossed with a bug bitten oolong like oriental beauty then given the terroir textures and flavors from japan. After a few steeps I start to notice a lite alcohol like after breathe. This is a must try in my books and only 1 kg of the tea was produced so good luck and enjoy.
