The 2018 Turtle Dove is a compressed, leafy, peony style white tea from Yunnan province that is made from large leaf tea varietals. The compression is lighter than the 2017 version, but the taste profile is quite similar. It's full-bodied for a white tea, which makes sense giving its age and the fact that it was naturally dried without the use of ovens or air blowers to speed up its production process.
Turtle Dove is a very satisfying and very clean everyday white tea.
