Tiger Sniffs the Rose 2021 Naka White Tea

$4.00$110.00

Description

An unexpected addition to our white teas for 2021, this tea is a joy to drink. It initially offers a sweet fruitiness, but steadily develops more dominant florals as the session continues.

Made from Naka material that is usually destined to become raw puer, this tea offers much of the similar depth and body as the raw puer from this region, but in the firm yet gentle form of a white tea.

This tea is almost too good to be true, especially given the affordable price. It’s safe to say this tea easily falls into the drink-now and store a tong for later category.

    I was a bit skeptical before trying this: a white tea from Naka, at this price point? What’s the catch, is this some kind of gimmick? After trying this tea twice my concerns were put to rest. To me, the fragrance and taste of this tea isn’t as prominent as some other BLT white tea offerings. White Crow and Impress forcibly has a very prominent aftertaste and more fruitiness, the latter almost tasting like apple juice. This tea is more subdued and has oxidised a fair bit already. No specific notes come to mind. Some drinkers may be put off by this.

    But some people seek out teas with strong effects on the body and mind, prioritizing this before fragrance. And that is where this tea delivers. It has a very nice head-oriented energy. Visual field expands, staring at things becomes fascinating, energy surges throughout the body and enhances bodily awareness. It’s a deep but at the same time calm energy. I find myself wanting to close my eyes and just be. This is all very personal of course.

    Some people say that only sheng puerh has cha qi, and that it’s the processing that “unlocks” this aspect regardless of the leaves used. It would be interesting to drink this tea with a person arguing for this and see if they change their minds.

    What an unexpected tea to experience. This tea is very long lasting. It’s easy to brew, very forgiving. Brewed lighter will give you a medium body with delicate flower notes, brewed more heavy will give you more texture as expected, but still mantains a sweet, smooth profile but with more fruity flavors. Soothing and relaxing cha qi.

    The energy is powerful, the taste is grassy and vegetal – but in a summer, dried kind of way. I was honestly confused about the name until I smelled the lid of my gaiwan… then the rose aroma was distinct. The calmness of the cha qi is the ease of confidence, security in your environment. This will make you a tiger moving through tall grass, lured by the occasional scent of roses.

    Unfortunately, this is a miss for me as the water in my area (Klang Valley, Malaysia) doesn’t play nice with this tea and I am too lazy to put in the effort to make this tea work.
    I’ll still give this 4 stars as I reckon that this is a good tea for a beginner who likes lighter teas with cha qi and has access to good water. Smells lovely and goes down smooth. And when I get it right, its dried sweet grass on some days and floral rock melon on others. When I get it wrong, its tasteless and mineraly.

    Taste half sheng half aged white – funny combo

    //Wet/Dry Leaves : warm raspberry jam, warm flowers under the summer sun, raspberry coulis, fruits salad, yummy
    //Texture: warm spot in the middle of the tongue, coated teeth/cheeks/gums, medium to thick mouth feel
    //Taste: strawberry and apple warm compote, mineral, vegetal touch, creamy, a bit salty, fresh cake straight outta the over

    This tea is perfect the get a calm excitement and a pacific/meditative an state of mind.
