Day 29 of my 101 days of tea. Had this today (well, I suppose technically yesterday now) at the DAVIDsTEA on Queen Street West. Steeped for around 6 minutes.
I found the taste to be quite floral — more than I’d like, really. Perhaps someone who enjoyed that sort of taste might find this delightful, but it wasn’t quite my thing. It also seemed rather one-note-ish, perhaps because I’m used to flavoured whites and this was straight.
I resteeped it with a half-full cup (the DAVIDsTEA cups are pretty big, after all….), and found the taste to even perhaps get stronger than the first time around. So, still didn’t like it, but was glad to see that the flavour was quite persistant at least.
Not my favourite tea, probably wouldn’t buy more of it (especially at $20/50g). However, it’s my first straight white tea of this challenge, so I’m glad I gave it a try.
