51 Tasting Notes
Oh Frank, you are a wiz with teas. This tea is so tasty. The maple, brown sugar, and oatmeal are all well represented. I did however add just a pinch of sugar to this cup to bring out the sweetness. I just felt it needed to be a nip sweeter. I really enjoyed this tea – thanks LiberTEAS!
I have found through tastings of other grape related teas, Apparently it is hard to get a nice natural grape flavoring that does not scream artificial. Well Frank has come close to the holy land on this tea. The flavoring is mild and mixes well with the bai mu dan.
Sample by TeaEquelsBliss. Thank you!!! This pure unflavored white was just what I needed after the last few disastrous flavored teas I have tried. I can’t help thinking a silver needle should have a bit more flavor, but this was a nice relaxing cup and I was very glad to have it. :0)
Something I cannot understand is why any tea company would use such artificial flavoring AND why they would believe real tea lovers would settle for it.
Smells artificial and tastes artificial. Sad really. I think of the little native people who spend so much time and effort collecting these teas for the world to enjoy, then just to have such mediocre flavorings applied. Sad.
