On today’s episode of “Tea Problems…”

“White Tea…You are Drunk”

This is my first experience with white tea…first steep…ring the alarm. Houston we have a problem. First of all, it’s not WHITE y’all. AT. ALL. It straight-up looks like COFFEE. I SWEAR ON THE LEAF I ONLY STEEPED IT FOR 3 MINUTES!!!

Help.

In other news…tastes good. Nice hint of coconut. I added rock sugar so it’s pretty sweet…I dig it. Actually, that could be where the color is coming from…maaaaaaybe?

I’ll do a proper review after I figure out what/if I did something wrong…maybe I’ll try it with no sugar on the re-steep. Are you supposed to re-steep white? (Heads to Google)

Cavocorax

That’s strange! And if it’s a good quality white you should be able to resteep it!

I got this tea in the white sampler box my best friend sent me for my birthday. I love white teas. Their delicacy is unmatched and they are the perfect partner for any fruit. Sadly, this blend did not live up to my expectations. I had a cup of it once and wasn’t too keen on it on it’s own. What I ended up doing was brewing it at quadruple strength and using part of it in my hookah base with some strawberry and guava tobacco. I’d say if I ever get it again, I’ll use if for that alone. It really enhanced the tobacco flavour, but on it’s own fell pretty flat.

This is probably my least favorite tea from Adagio. I was really excited at the prospect of a fruity and tropical tea, but the aroma in the bag smelled over sweet. The tropical taste seemed off to me.

I really enjoyed this at first. I ordered it thinking it would be fruity and perfect for icing. While I am sure it would be fine iced, the coconut that is the main flavor (for me at least) tastes better warm. But as I worked through the couple ounces I had, it started to smell less like tropics and more like hot feet. Do not like.

My first time trying this tea. I got it in a white tea sampler and I don’t think I would’ve picked it out on its own. The leaves smell weird, but in a way I’m having a hard time identifying. Like, I can make myself believe that it’s coconut and pineapple but they’re not my first guesses. Then again, I don’t really like coconut or pineapple any way but straight up, so I am already biased against this.

The tea itself doesn’t smell as strongly as the leaves. The taste is also not particularly strong. I think I could’ve stood to use a bit more tea (I made less than normal since the smell was making me think I wasn’t going to particularly enjoy it) because as it is it’s pretty weak. It’s not bad, but it’s not good either. It’s fine, but it’s going to be a while before I bother to make this again.

Edit: okay, it’s cooling down and tasting more coconut-y. I change my assessment from “fine” to “tolerable”.

its a really light fruity/flowery taste and its something to enjoy on a hot summer day. I have also used it as part of recipe to make tropical rice and it worked really well.

I picked this up in my first ever Adagio store outing after a friend I was with picked up the jar, smelled it, made a face and told me to not do it. I, being the contrary person I am, of course picked up the canister and took a whiff. I didn’t think it was that bad and I ended up picking up a bag. Unfortunately this is the tea whose memory will forever remind me to buy samples first.
The coconut was a bit stronger in the bag when I first opened it, but I could smell the pineapple as well, so I brewed up a batch.
Not what I was expecting, but certainly not as bad as I was thinking it would be after reading some of the reviews here. But within 5-10 min of first drinking this, I got the most godawful headache and proceeded to be ill for the rest of the night. And I’m positive it was the tea since I hadn’t eaten/drank anything I hadn’t had before.
I’m not sure if it was a bad batch, or just whatever they used for the flavoring reacted badly with me, but it was one of the worst experiences I’ve had with a tea since I started drinking it.

This has been one of my favorites since I got a sample last Christmas (09) and its been my daily tea off and on between some other greens and whites that I have. I got hooked drinking it lightly sweetened with turbinado sugar and now prefer it unsweetened. I’ve been brewing 2 batches every morning from my Zarafina and chilling it in the morning before drinking it since its too hot out here in Arizona to take it hot. With this being my first white tea that I have taken a big liking to, its hard to compare it to other whites. I love the light and fruity flavor that go along with earthy flavor of the tea.

I’ve gotten 7 or 8 cups out of the sample I purchased but I’m still undecided about this tea. The dry leaves smell like pineapples and sunscreen. There’s definitely coconut here too.

It’s decent brewed. Unsweetened, it has a nice flowery quality but lacking in overall flavor. On the other hand, too much sugar ruins it. Just a touch of sugar will do.

I’ve also been mixing it with some Vanilla Rooibos tea, which has been my favorite way to drink it.
