Bai mu dan white teas tend to be delicately sweet naturally, so adding honey seems like it's cheating. Yet I'm picturing this thickly sweet honey white tea or maybe just a BMD with a subtle extra hit of honey flavour, and both ideas are very appealing. However, this does neither.

After 3 minutes at 185°, at least the scent holds up to my ideal expectations. It's light but sweet and slightly floral with a realistic honey note. The base tea is disappointing and a strangely heavy pairing for the added flavouring. It's woody with a smoky acidity and a mild bitterness. Pairing this with the subtle honey sweetness is just strange.

Bai mu dan should be light, sweet, maybe floral. The leaves look right, but they taste more like a cheap roasted oolong. It's dense and muddled with a sharp, dry aftertaste. So the idea is there, and the honey flavour is nice, but I don't like the choice of base tea. I'll probably be giving away the rest of my sample.
