Want to preface with thanks to Frank of 52teas for complying with request of this as freebie in the White Tea sale. Now on to review…
How is it I get the impression of fizz in this tea? The flavour reminds me of Schweppes Ginger Ale. Ginger makes dry tea smell odd but I find it brews up beautifully. (I mean that ginger as a flavour additive does not smell like fresh ginger but tastes like proper ginger). I should try it iced, but darn I only have an itty bitty pouch. However, white tea is not one to keep around over a year so I foretell this one will disappear quickly. I want to add, this tea is great if you want ginger ale, not if you want light flavouring of BMD because this one masks most of the tea. I will see if resteeping might change that. Note that I am a fan of bergamot so I didn’t think of mentioning it; probably because I prefaced this tasting with Harney’s Paris. (having Friday off means cupping of my tea cupboard and playing with my Yixing ware).
