Normally, the tea that comes in gift baskets by foofy girlfiend-gift stores tastes like dishwater. However, this one is pleasant. Brewed strong, it’s berry without being tart. Ices down nicely, too.
1236 Tasting Notes
Still a good morning tea, but NOT in a travel mug. As a matter of fact, I have yet to find a tea I like from a travel mug. All I can taste is plastic lid.
I’m not much of a chamomile fan—never discovered a variety that I thought tasted different or better—but drinking it strong in hopes it will contribute to a decent night’s sleep.

Tried a sample. Could’ve been user error on my part, but tasted a lot like lawn clippings.
I’m amazed at the longevity of this tea—-I’ve had my box for longer than I can recall, and it brews up just fine. Usually gets dragged out for antioxidant purposes when I suspect somebody’s exposed me to a cold or flu bug. In the summer, I brew with home-grown spearmint and ice it down.
Was just introduced to this at a conference last week (the person in charge is also a dear friend and kept her tea basket at our disposal!) and was pleasantly surprised. Nice and fruity without a sharp twang to either the fruit or the green tea flavors. Probably should have steeped a little longer.
Just returned from a trip plagued by airline delays and lack of good water to brew with. This was the only tea in my little travel stash that could overpower the nasty hotel water taste. Under normal circumstances, it’s a nice alternative to chai—-has a nice spice-rack cinnamon flavor instead of tasting like red hots.
I actually gave it the full steeping time; 7 minutes seems like eternity, but I can now concede to the “brothy” descriptions. Not sure about buttery….I think white tea just isn’t my cuppa.
Nice. Takes a long time to steep it strong enough for my taste.
Not a bad coffee sub. Less of an abrupt jolt into wakefulness; more of a gentle come-on-you-can-do-this tug.
I believe Culinary Teas sells this brand in bulk, which is what I have. I’m on the tail end of a pound, so it’s starting to get a little old, but still a fruity favorite. In the summer, I ice it down and add a little extra grenadine syrup.
Close to perfect.
This came from a little Tennessee tea shop, so it actually may be another brand, specially shop packaged. But all the same, it’s the right balance of nutty and sweet without being too sweet. Drinking with half and half. Mmmmm.
Smooth and nice; a little less “green-beany” tasting (to borrow a well-chosen phrase from another user) than many straight green teas.
I realize white tea is mild by default, but I don’t think there’s much difference between this and hot tap water.
Another nice fruity tea that isn’t tart or sharp. Nice and mellow.
Loved it but frustrated that it seems to be available only seasonally and/or sporadically.
Brewed up bitter for me.

A gift; probably wouldn’t have picked it out myself since I tend to dislike pre-sweetened teas. But it’s OK for a dessert tea.
Very nice; gentle and good for afternoons. When I have the patience to wait to brew it properly, has a nice little nutty thing going on in the background.
I can taste a lot of “white,” but not much “berry.” A little weak.
Better than most grocery-store brands. Smooth and basic.
