I like this tea for when I can’t decide between a fruit flavored black tea, or a spiced black tea, because it’s both! Honestly, I don’t think this one is particularly remarkable, but I happen to have a fondness for both apricot and cloves, so I’m a fan. (And no, I’ve never eaten a fresh apricot, so I can’t judge if it tastes like the real thing or not.)
This is my first tea with rose petals so I was very exciting my this purchase. I love roses so this may be a tad biased. This tea is delicate and would be great for an afternoon tea with scones. It smells really good as well. For my net cup I may steep it for a couple of more minutes. If you love roses, this tea is for you!
I’m so excited to drink a local tea! I was pleasantly surprised this morning with drinking this. Subtle hints of vanilla and cherry makes this black tea enjoyable to drink. I steeped it for 5 minutes and it wasn’t bitter so I’m thinking if you left the bad in it won’t turn bitter. I’m glad I picked this up.
Again, not much flavor for a chocolate tea. Strawberries too. Really no flavor here for me… I don’t know… it seems like there should be a specific steep temperature and time for each tea, and each tea is different. I try not to pour just boiled water on any tea, because I think it might “burn” the flavor out of a tea.
I received a sample of this tea from Jessica! Thanks! The smell of the dry teabag is very much of raspberry. I steeped this for a bit longer than most would steep a white tea because I like them a little stronger. The taste of the tea is initially the smooth white tea followed by a hefty fruity aspect. This is much better than I thought it would be!
I’ve hesitated to brew this, because my previous means of heating water was a standing water dispenser with only one heat setting. I got a new electric kettle for Christmas, and this was the first thing I brewed. I love white teas, but I haven’t had one in a while, because it’s so easy to scorch the leaves. I love the smell and taste of this tea. Slightly sweet and fruity with the light taste of white tea.
