The newest taste in my Sunday Tea and Books series!
I made it iced in my new pitcher just for iced tea. I added 4 large teaspoons of leaf (the leaf here is very fluffy), 4 cups of boiling water, and some agave nectar, and let it steep for 6 minutes. After which I added about 4 cups of ice cubes to cool it all down. The resulting liquor is a nice, light, clear amber.
I have to say up front that I’m not a huge fan of white teas – unless they’re really strongly flavoured, they all taste the same to me. And unfortunately, this one is a bit too subtle for me. I taste the peach a bit, but I mostly just taste white tea, even with the sweetener added, which normally brings out the fruit flavours more. I can see why others would like it, but it’s leaving me lukewarm.
But what character did it remind me of? Unfortunately, since I wasn’t won over by this tea, the comparison is not very positive: http://christinavasilevski.com/2014/05/sunday-tea-books-sweet-peach-white-from-simple-loose-leaf/
