Let me preface this by saying that this is only the second unflavored white tea I have tried. I really wanted to know what flavor the white tea contributes to the flavored white teas, and after trying this, I can tell that the flavor of the white tea is not lost in Persimmon Tree’s flavored whites, like white guava. You can definitely taste the white tea, along with the added flavor there. Here, I get hayish flavor, but not as strong as in the silver needle white tea. I think I prefer this one over silver needle because of its sweetness. Now I know what the white tea base tastes like, so I’ll be able to appreciate the flavored whites more. In the end though, I think I prefer a little flavor added to my white teas. Maybe that will change, but for now, that’s how it is! ;)

I have recently become tea obsessed! I’ve always loved an occasional cup and my mother is a daily tea drinker, but in the last year it has become my favorite thing! Started out by having a cup of black tea in the morning. Loved going for afternoon tea with my mom! Since fully immersing myself in loose leaf tea, I have become nuts for it!

I am now exploring more and more companies, and trying to go beyond my comfort zone of flavored black teas and try more oolong, green and white teas.

My favorite teas are evolving. I love teas from DavidsTea, Lupicia, Harney and Sons, Della Terra Teas, and Butiki!
