I got this tea at a wedding I attended! It was the favor and our place cards were attached to it. Nice idea :)
This is my first experience with a white tea. The tea leaves almost looked like bay leaves. Interesting!!!
The tea liquor is a pretty golden color. First sip – I taste a sort of tea taste with an overlay of the flavoring. I really don’t like the flavor – I think it’s supposed to be coconut and pineapple, but I think it tastes like the fake butter people put on popcorn with a dash of suntan lotion!!!! Bleah!!!
I am going to finish this cup, but I’m not resteeping and this tin is going into the traveling teabox!!
EDIT: Cofftea suggesting trying it at a 3 minute steep time. I did a cup at 3 minutes/180F and the tea tastes good, but that fakebuttersuntanlotion is faint but there, and it’s just too artificial for my liking. Again, I’ll finish the cup, but out into the world it goes! If one of you happen to choose it from the TTB, lessening the suggested steep time is a great suggestions and improves it ALOT :)
EDIT2: This tea is growing on me as it cools. I think I’m going to keep it for an afternoon cuppa, but I wouldn’t buy it. I would up the rating to oooooh, a 51 at a 3 min steep time. Cofftea – you’re a tea saver :)
EDIT3: and now I have a stomachache!!!!! I never get stomachaches! It’s going in the box again!!
