3 Tasting Notes
A very light and energetic white tea. The blueberry aroma takes over as soon as you open the pack, and carries through the cup. A medium steep with mild water is the way to go with whites to avoid the bitterness. The blueberries in it (yes there are dried blueberries in the tea) will give this tea a natural sweetness, and is a good afternoon tea when one feels the urge to eat something.
I can get usually two good infusions out of a teaspoon.
I am generally not a huge herbal tea fan and while this isn’t a true herbal I just had to try it. Since then, I’ve re-ordered this tea three times. It’s excellent.
One word of warning, this tea will go bad if not used within say a few months (and stored properly).
Tea opens on the nose with cut grass and a hint of jasmine.
Grassy, herb notes on the palate with a strong yet not overpowering flavor. The first infusion for 45 sec (175F) results in no bitterness at all and a beautiful spring leaf green colour.
I am actually surprised this tea has such a low rating. It’s probably my favorite green from Teavana, and top 5 overall.
