4 Tasting Notes

85

I bought this tea a while ago when I went to visit my old stomping grounds in New York. I was originally looking for a now discontinued blend but settled with this one to give it a try (at the time I hadn’t had much experience with white teas).

The citrus and berry flavors complement the otherwise subtle taste of white tea really well. It was a very pleasant drinking experience.

The smell is actually my favorite part. It’s just a wonderful, sweet aroma that fills the room with warmth.

I plan to re-stock as soon as I get back to NY.

Their tins are really bad for tea, however, with an open “viewing” window that lets light in. They are also generally a pain to open and close, so I’d transfer to a better storage asap.

This definitely knocks me out. Although it doesn’t help me fall asleep faster, it helps me stay asleep as I am I light sleeper and wake up multiple times through the night.

The taste is OK. I’m not a huge fan of the fennel flavor that is fairly bold compared to the other ingredients, but other than that, it’s alright. Definitely not a tea I’d drink for pleasure, just to help me sleep.
