Wax is the second release of this barrel-aged series, a finely crafted white tea that aims to offer new horizons to your adventurous taste buds. Kept in our aging cave for almost a decade before spending the better part of a year in a Chardonnay wine seasoned oak barrel, this experiment is again part of our ongoing effort to make 2021 the ultimate fun year.
Smooth and rich, WAX presents something altogether new, a taste profile that takes as much from whisky as it does from tea. Soft and fruity to the nose (notes of melon, liquorice, and vanilla), it really shines in the mouth from the barrel aging. Whisky enthusiasts will recognize aromatic similitude with peated scotch, new Kentucky bourbon, and perhaps other soft Speyside classics.
We chose aged Shou Mei to fill our oak in hopes that its soft and mellow profile would easily soak in the rich history of the barrel. Shou Mei is a rustic white tea that develops mellowness with age. In the end, the cup is thick and waxy while the taste is crisp and clear.
For whiskey and tea enthusiasts alike.
