It’s a really warm day today and I’ve already had enough caffeine but nevertheless… I could not resist trying this sample.

I was intrigued to find out what cilantro would be like in a tea, I know some people hate the flavor of cilantro but personally I love it, I used to make pesto with it and I’d put that on a pizza with fresh tomatoes, nom nom!

Come to think of it I am also a big fan of pineapple. :)

Anyway on to the tea. White teas do not tend to be a favorite of mine as a rule. I wonder if I did something to mess this up because it smells great in the package but when I went to taste it, I’m getting kind of a faint pineapple and cilantro and not getting the characteristic sweetness one would find in a bai mu dan. It’s ok but I don’t love it.

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it
