4834 Tasting Notes
Thanks to Paul M Tracy for sending me a bit of this tea to try!
I had originally set my timer for 5 minutes but when it hit 4 minutes, I saw how dark red it had become and I feared that I would have an overly hibiscus-y tea, so I stopped the infusion at 4 minutes. I am glad I did. I taste a very fruity tisane now, but if it had steeped longer, I think I would have tasted more of the hibiscus and as it is, I am only getting faint hibiscus notes.
The aroma is primarily eucalyptus which I happen to like but I can see it coming off as medicinal to some.
I am getting a very pleasant backdrop of apple and carrot which provides a very smooth, lightly sweet, even “surface” for the bright citrus notes of this tea. Every once in a while, the flavor of the eucalyptus will reveal itself. I am getting very little from the hibiscus – just an occasional note of tart. The beetroot gives a nice sweetness.
I actually like this quite a bit. Much better than I thought I would!
Oh wow! This is probably the best white tea that I’ve ever had! It’s amazing!
Sweet with floral sharpness that comes off with just a little bitter bite. It amazes me how much this white tea fills the palate with it’s complex flavors.
Delightful. So good. I want more.

I love this tea! I previously reviewed it here:
Sweet, lovely, and light. Yummy caramel with pear… reminiscent of baked pears, but without the spice. Personally, I might like this even more with a little spice, but it’s really good as is!
Today was a great mail day! I not only got this tea but also my 12 days sampler. The sampler is adorable, and I am just itching to get started on it… I’m even trying to make the time go faster … today while at the store, I tried writing the check for the 9th rather than the 8th!
Anyways… the smell of the tea is AMAZING… it smells like fresh, hot banana bread. Yummmmmmmmm
Oh wow! This is yum. Since I am enjoying this with my lunch, I am going to hold off on the review, because I’ve got a lot of different flavors going on right now. I guess I’ll just have to brew myself a second cup later. Oh, the torture!
I think I’ve tried this one before, but I hadn’t logged it. Having some more this morning (yes, I know it’s not morning, but it is for me).
I am a little surprised by the other tasting notes for this tea, because I can taste the peaches and cream. They meld together quite nicely. I don’t taste the black tea quite as much as I do the peaches and cream… it’s a very nice tea though… perhaps one of my favorites from the mystery boxes I purchased.
Finishing off the last I have of this … and it is one that I will miss. It’s a very good white tea.

It has a nice aroma – a little soft but smells nicely of cranberry and also has a light, fresh leafy fragrance in the background. It has a good flavor – clean green tea taste, light on the astringency, and a pleasant sweet/tart taste from the cranberry. Nothing overwhelming, a very good, light tasting tea.
This SMELLS so GOOD! Yum!
Citrus notes with a creamy undertone. A lot like a creamsicle – with tea! And as good as it smells, it tastes even better. The citrus tones are sweet with just enough tart to keep it interesting but not too much. The creamy yogurt flavor gives it a smooth, rich taste and texture. The black tea is bright but fairly mellow. A nice afternoon tea.
