430 Tasting Notes
I don’t know about this one. I felt it was pretty loud for a white tea. The dry leaf smelled amazing and after steep it was about the same. There is definitely no lack of flavor but I just didn’t think it really tasted like strawberry shortcake. All and all I didn’t feel the flavors were well balanced, the vanilla stuck out the most and lingers long after the sip but even though the strawberry was visibly there it didn’t taste like it. I am however happy I had the chance to try it.
After this cooled off I got a bit more of a tart strawberry sweet flavor. The flavors also tied in with each other a bit better. Bumped up a few points.
When I saw this I didn’t even stop think if I should or shouldn’t buy it. A force took me over and I just had to buy it. I am happy to say it was a wonderful decision. The scent out of the bag was of sweet watermelon and the smell after the steep was also a strong watermelon. After taking the first sip the flavor of watermelon was lacking in comparison to the smell both pre and post steep. Nevertheless, I truly am happy I purchased this. I enjoyed the essence of watermelon and for a brief moment I felt like it was spring time. Since am in Chicago the daydream; as a result of this tisane, was priceless. I suspect this would make an amazing iced tea. I will try some later.
