I really like this one! Much more than I expected. I received a sample from Davids Tea with my order, and I’m so glad I did. When I first opened it, I thought all the nuts and blue leaves were strange, and there was no way the sliced almonds could give flavor to a tea by just hanging out in the water as it steeped. The tea smells faintly of chocolate and not much else – definitely a hint as to how light this tea is. It’s a white tea, and feels perfect for spring or any time you need a tea that’s not too loud or bold. This tea tastes like chocolate hazelnut wafer sandwiches I used to eat as a kid (kind of like Kit Kat bars, but not covered in chocolate), and the aroma of the tea is stronger than the tea itself. Brings back good memories and tastes great. Oh, and I think you definitely need to steep this one for the recommended 4-5 minutes to get the full flavor.

Looking at the ingredients I can’t taste berries or licorice or orange peel, but I don’t mind. As for magical immunity increasing powers, I think I’d need to drink more than three cups to see any effect ;)

Bio

I grew up drinking masala chai and fell into the tea world a couple years ago. Black teas are probably my favorite, with Darjeeling and Earl Grey on the top of the list. Recently green teas and oolongs have been growing on me, and anything with mint or a citrus flavor is good in my book.
