I am wondering if the White Cucumber I am having today is the same as that noted by others a few years ago. Perhaps Adagio changed the formula? The reason I say this, I get none of the harsh smell from the leaves. A mild “green” aroma but nothing much else. There is definately no cinnamon others had mentioned. A hot cup was a plain very mild white tea taste -not a bad thing. As it cooled though I was able to detect hints-small hints-of cucumber. Great tea if you want something very mild. Next time I will increase the amount of tea and note any difference.
