So the Teavana sales people are REALLY good at what they do. The selling part anyway. This tea smelled incredible, of course I had to buy it. And of course it was the most expensive tea the have. But anyway, it’s very good for a white tea. I followed the brewing directions and it’s exactly what I expected. VERY light, in face I might steep an extra minute next time. It does have the earthy tones that everyone here has described but I find them very enjoyable. It sits well in my stomach and it’s even helping with my sore throat a little, although I guess most hot teas can do that pretty well. The one issue I have with it is although it’s a good white tea, it is not worth $22/ 2oz. I probably won’t buy it again, unfortunately. I might stick to the much cheaper youthberry.
