The dry scent of this is simply fantastic. I steeped the leaves for 4 minutes per the instructions on the bag (really, Teavana? 4 minutes for a white tea?) The first few sips tasted lovely….a subtle, clean base with bright, sweet, juicy notes of berry to round things out. Halfway through the cup I started detecting bitterness (I’m guessing from the amount of steeping time?) All in all, this isn’t a bad flavor, but I’m not especially drawn to it. (then again, I happen to have a thing for green or black teas anyways) I’ve tried this blended with the wild orange blossom from Teavana, and after having it straight, I think I prefer it blended.
