White2Tea 2020 Nightlife White Tea Review

Today I am reviewing a Nightlife white tea ball from White2Tea.

Supposedly this Yue Guang Bai white tea is made from a large leaf variety usually destined for puer tea.

Review

I brewed the whole 7 gram ball of white tea in a small glass pitcher which holds 1 medium gaiwan worth of water.

I don’t have any spring water on hand so I am using distilled water.

I gave the tea a 15 second rinse under hot water and discarded the rinse.

First Steep

Steeped for 45 seconds.

Brewed a very light golden color.

The ball of tea seems more heavily pressed then many other white tea balls I have tried.

Flavor notes: Wildflowers, white grape, golden raisins, brown sugar, cream, vanilla

Second Steep

Steeped for 1 minute.

Brewed an amber color.

A dark honey note has developed.

Third Steep

Steeped for 1 minute and 15 seconds.

The flavor mostly carries on the same as before, except that it has a bit of a spice note now.

The tea ball has not fully decompressed yet, which is an issue with many of White2Tea’s offerings.

Conclusion

It’s a decent Yue Guang Bai tea, but it’s more expensive then Yunnan Sourcing’s imperial grade Yue Guang Bai, which I find to be higher quality.

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
