1587 Tasting Notes
Not bad for a tea that’s pretty obviously made out of tea dust and fannings. The smell is an interesting mix of apricot and a faint ‘toasty’ smell, which I don’t think is characteristic of white teas. Taste is smooth and there’s no bitterness. The hint of apricot is pleasent and not too artifical-tasting.
It wasn’t as sour as I expected it to be – most raspberry teas make me pucker from the tartness. I suspect that a lot of the ‘raspberry’ flavouring was really the hibiscus (which is the first ingredient on the list and has a tart cranberry-ish taste). I’m not a big fan of raspberry-flavoured things in general, but this one isn’t bad at all.
