I only have a 3 cup sampler of this and thought that with my recent thirst for all that is fruity I would give this a try tonight.

In appearance the white tea is chopped into small dark green pieces with a few spots of silver amongst the mixture. The scent whilst raw smells like strawberry leaf rather than actual fresh strawberry but it’s sweet and desirable non the less.

Once steeped the colour is dark gold/yellow with a gentle yet sweet strawberry scent.

The flavour is melllow and refreshing with a sweet lingering strawberry taste. It’s strawberry leaf over strawberry in taste but there is no bitterness or tang that I usually find with it. There is also a slight floral freshness behind the sweetness. I’m picking up honeyed tones as I drink more, a sweet smoothness that silks it’s way over the strawberry.

One cup remains…. iced tea may be nice. :)

Profile

Bio

I am 26 years old from Leicester, England. I have been drinking tea for many years now and have been getting more and more appreciative about good tea’s. I like to try new and exciting tea’s and import regularly as a treat.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have four of my own called Honey, Cassie, Mr Soots and Ivory.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I am also an avid reader and enjoy curling up with a book (mostly crime, horror, thriller, literature genres) in one hand and a cup of tea in the other.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.
