This is tea 2 of 4 from my most recent 52teas order. Normally, an apricot tea wouldn’t interest me much, BUT the combination of this tea being a once in a lifetime offering and that it is from the master of blending at 52teas…I had to pick some up. There have been just a few white teas that I’ve really enjoyed with the most recent being Silver Needles, but I do love oolongs and greens. The ingredient list is very unusual and I was a bit worried about how long to steep this tea. Luckily some of the other reviewers included this brewing times to help me decide on a starting point.
The scent of this tea reminds me of peach more than apricot but that may be because I haven’t had anything with apricot in quite awhile. Initially I just taste the fruity aspect but that is followed by a softness that I associate with the Silver Needles I had once. There is something interesting to this blend that I can’t quite describe but I think I like it. The rating is subject to change after I’ve had a few more experiences with this one.
