This is the final tea I tried of the DT summer collection, no Mango fruit punch this year as I tried it last year, oh and I tried Watermelon Mint this afternoon but didn’t pay enough attention to write a tasting note yet lol ( I was reading a good book haha), and I made this one tonight. It smells SO TROPICAL in the bag. Like, sooo good and juicy and fresh!
I steeped this for 4 mins with 185 degree water. In the scoop I put in the mug, it looked like there was actually quite a lot of white tea, although it was all chopped into bits and not much whole leaf at all. The tea smells tropical and mango/starfruit like when brewed, quite a delicious scent actually! As for the flavor, there definitely is white tea in my cup, it has that characteristic mild bitterness of a DavidsTea white tea base in a blend, probably because it was brewed for 4 minutes, in my opinion a long time to brew a white tea. But other than that, it’s juicy and sweet and tastes like starfruit with mango! Quite tasty, although I need to tweak my parameters to get rid of that bitter flavor from the white tea, maybe I’ll steep 2-3 minutes next time. Another one that I bet is awesome cold!
