I’m so glad I bought tons of this one last winter! Every time, before I brew it, I think it probably won’t be as good as in my memory, and expect to be slightly disappointed. Especially since the dry smell screams GRAPE! and nothing else, almost to the point where it’s too much. But once again, it failed to disappoint! I brought some in class in a thermos, and when I opened it, everyone’s head instantly turned in my direction from the smell, and I definitely could see some envy! (of course, I did share some with my neighbours!).
Anyways, the best thing about that tea is its taste. If you brew it right, you will taste the grape, but it won’t overpower the white tea at all. Since I’m a big white tea fan, to me, that part is the best. The delicious, flavourful taste of white tea, paired with a delicate yet authentic taste of grapes in the background. How can this not be permanent? I think none of DT’s recent white tea blends have hit the note as well as this one (though I did love some of them – hello Cherry Potion!).
