This was the third and final tea from my 8th edition box from Postal Teas. I really enjoyed this box and discovering the white teas from Lemon Lily.
Even though these teas all seemed to share a common thread (beyond being all from the same company and all sent in the same sampler box from Postal Teas) – they were all very visually stunning and seemed to have a lot of flowers in them – I enjoyed that I found them all to be unique. They were all quite floral but I liked that I was not only tasting the flower but the other flavors of each blend.
This one is even more floral than the first two were. This blend focuses on the rose and I like the flavor combination of rose and white tea. It’s a soft and subtle combination. Mild fruit notes.
A really lovely tea – not just to look at but also to sip.
The photo is slightly deceptive because it doesn’t show all the beet powder that is in this. When I received this tea in my 8th edition of Postal Teas, I was kind of surprised by all the hot pink dust that was inside.
As I mention in my full-length review of this tea: http://sororiteasisters.com/2014/11/26/beauty-the-beet-white-tea-from-lemon-lily/ – It kind of looks like freeze dried lipstick that had been pulverized into a powder.
When you steep the tea, it becomes a ruby red. It almost looks like it has hibiscus in it, but it doesn’t. (Thankfully)
A very interesting tea. I taste rose and lavender. The beetroot softens the flavors and gives the cup a sweetness and accents the earthiness of the white tea.
It’s a pleasant cup and certainly unusual.
This is one of the most visually stunning teas I’ve encountered. However, there are a lot of flowers – let me retype that and say: there are a LOT of flowers in this. It almost looks like there are more flowers than there is tea.
This is the first tea that I tried from Lemon Lily, a tea company that was featured in edition 8 from Postal Teas.
Fortunately, even though there are a lot of flowers in the tea, I can taste the delicate white tea. It is a very floral tea, but the flowers seem to actually accentuate the white tea base.
This tea pleases all the senses – I love the way it looks, I love the aroma, I love the taste and it even makes me feel good when I sip it. As far as the sense of hearing, I like to hear the sigh of contentment when I sip it.
Notes of lavender and chrysanthemum. A hint of spice from the anise (I really like the way the licorice plays with the floral notes). The maple comes through nicely. And then I taste that light, airy, silky quality of the white tea.
A really enjoyable tea.
