I took this to work today and made iced tea with it, I like it this way. Very refreshing for my afternoon beverage. See previous notes for more info.

Many thanks to Amanda for this sample. Sorry it took me so long to review it. I lost it….lol….oops!
Anyway, I love white tea, so I was looking forward to the cold brewing of this tea. Mango is a stellar fruit, so this must be good.
It is pretty lightly flavoured but it is tasty and natural tasting. I don’t think I even knew that 52teas existed when this tea was available! If I knew about it, I probably would have ordered it!
It makes an awesome tropical smoothie FYI!
I’m not feeling very poetic today, so this will be a short, straightforward review.
Hmm, I’m not sure I like papaya. No way to know until I tried it though! The Bai Mu Dan is quiet and lingers in the background. The mango is fairly quiet as well, overshadowed by the papaya. I’ve never wanted to add sweetener to a white tea before, but that changed with this cup. Then again, I don’t want to ruin a good thing. Thanks to Kittenna for the sample!
On a happy note, I’m in the 6th week of P90X and I can actually do real push-ups now!!! I couldn’t even begin to bend my arms before I started the program. But now I can go really low and still push myself back up!! And I can do more than one!!! EEEEEEHH!!!
I like this one. The flavors are sweet and a little tart, and the Bai Mu Dan gives it a nutty, fresh and even a creamy flavor. I am drinking it hot, but, I’m betting this is awesome iced, so I will probably save some of this for when the weather gets warmer (we had snow earlier this week, so right now, iced tea just doesn’t sound too appealing).
Ooh, I think I like this better hot.
I started writing this 90 minutes ago and ended up on the phone for an hour with my mom so I have no idea what else I was going to say.
I like this better because I think the white tea gets to shine through more, I get a bit of a nutty taste in with the fruits.
So I think next time, I will take the best of both worlds and make some hot and let it cool down for iced tea and see how that goes.
Another sample from LiberTEAS!
Quick note because I should really get to sleep…
The brewed tea smells just slightly fruity, although I’ve let it cool so perhaps it was stronger before.
Definitely not missing out on tasting the white tea here! I’m not tasting as much fruit as I would have liked though. There’s some astringency, but I can handle it with a white tea.
Probably not going to be my favourite fruit/white blend, but nice to try just the same. I’ll hold off rating until I try it again warm.
The dry leaves smell so fruity and delicious! Mango and papaya made this an easy one to pick out of my sample pack (thanks again Anne from Liberteas – still working through the samples!).
This tea seems very light to me, but in a good way. I really love the fruity aspect. It’s not too overpowering. This is a good one to curl up on the couch with a nice book after a long day. This confims my need to subscribe to 52 teas – subscribing now actually.
