I chose this tea on a recent visit to a local teahouse since white tea is a consistent favorite of mine. Bearing in mind the sudden cold snap we have been experiencing, “White Tropics” sounded like a nice escape from the weather. The unique thing about this particular shop is that they serve their tea in French presses, so you can steep exactly to your liking. I really liked this as it was more interactive and gave me more of a connection with my beverage. The clear exterior of the press also allows for you to see the quality of the leaves as they are brewing. This particular blend had large leaves that had been dried delicately. After pressing my tea, it was a lovely honey golden color. Aromatically, it was very nice and tropical. The flavor left a little to be desired as the tropics (pineapple and coconut) were more of a subtle aftertaste. This would be permissible if the actual tea was more full-bodied, but unfortunately, it was not remarkable. It was not a bad tea by any means, but nothing particularly insteresting.
