On a recent samples binge at M&K’s Tea Company, I picked up a sample of their Bvumbwe White Tea. This tea comes straight from Malawi (tea is one of their biggest exports), and reminds me a lot of the oothu bai mu dan I reviewed a while ago.
The brewing directions were a bit finicky (158° at 30 seconds to two minutes?), but I was rewarded well for my efforts. The taste is nice and smooth with a hint of apricot aftertaste. It’s definitely not your typical white tea. Try it today!
