This is a white?! Two teas in two days that have shocked me in the same way. White that looks like a black, tastes like a black, and is even named a black (Tangerine Blossom Red Tea – red tea is what we consider to be black here). This is a thick, malty and slightly sweet tea with subtle floral notes – again so surprising considering the one minute steep time! I’d love to grab more of this to try it properly… if I love it this much severely underleafed, what will I think of it done right?

Thanks (I think?) to TeaTiff for sharing this in the 12 Days of Christmas Swap!

2 tsp in 16oz. – which according to the instructions is severely underleafed… I should have used 1/2-2 TB per 8 oz.

Flavors: Fruit Tree Flowers, Malt

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 1 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

I think it’s a white cultivar processed as a black tea… It’s pretty cool!

Oh… that makes sense now. I really enjoyed the cup, even more so earlier today after I’d forgotten about it and left it on the counter to cool.

Bio

Teaholic! Currently loving flavored blacks, greens, whites, green rooibos blends, straight blacks and greens, and have a long-standing adoration for herbals/medicinals. Dessert teas top my list along with anything cocoa-y.

I own an obscene amount of tea, and am always happy to share. Having said that, I’m traveling indefinitely (currently in Ireland) so my stash will sit and wait for me, as I send back tea to explore more when I get home again.

In addition to loving tea, I’m a dating columnist, single mom, nerd, and avid knitter. I read way too much, type even more, and spend my ‘free’ time either running, swinging kettlebells, or hanging with friends.

Allergies: Strawberries and all grains. I’m having a mild allergic reaction to both lavender and some roses in tea, and thus I’m avoiding these for now as well. I also avoid sugar and Splenda where possible.
