This is a nice, delicate tea but can’t go all the way to the top based on it’s over-sweetness. White teas are in general a lovely and sweet tea, somehow the blending on this one made it inch towards too sweet. The vanilla taste is lost in the overall “sweet”, a shame since I love vanilla. This is very much a dessert kind of tea, although I’d have it with a more savoury dessert (a custard with balsamic vinegar, for instance) rather than with a cake.
