This blend just might give you the edge you need to stay healthy this fall. It’s a white Bai Mu Dan, so it’s naturally high in immunity-enhancing antioxidants. Plus it contains licorice and goji berries, a Chinese wonderfood reputed to have 500 times more vitamin C than oranges. The best part? The almonds and cocoa nibs. They don’t fight colds, but they make this an amazingly tasty weapon of choice.

A wee sample sent by a tea-lover. Like the smell right out of the foil bag – sweet, nutty. Brewed to a pale gold. Smells really nice from my tea mug. I steeped it for quite a while to see if it would get stronger, but it’s pretty weak. Perhaps I would need to make a stronger infusion (more dry tea). Not all that great in taste. Added a teaspoon of sugar. I don’t taste the white tea at all. Nutty, so that’s good. I will try this again, but make it much stronger.
This is an interesting tea. Opening the package released a really unexpected nutty smell. On tasting it, I was mostly overwhelmed by the almond flavor. There was a little hint of the white tea, and I did get some licorice at the end. It was very nice. I added some sugar and I think that made it taste a bit weird. Next time, I’ll drink it without sugar and see how that goes. It was nice, but I probably wouldn’t buy it.
This is one of the first teas from DAVIDsTEA that I fell in love with. Not THE first — that honour goes to a spring collection tea that they’ve never brought back — but it’s up there. I rarely treat myself to it, because it’s on the more expensive side, but I was getting a little of a lot of teas, and I felt like treating myself.
Having it now reminds me of how much I love and miss it. Oh goodness. It’s got a lovely white chocolate/nutty quality to it, and it’s got a smooth, creamy feel to it. Not too bold, yet strong enough, and patient — I don’t think it’s going to start tasting oversteeped any time soon.
I think I’m falling in love all over again….
I love this tea. The first time I tried it I was not fond of it at all. I figured I’d drink it to not waste but I definitely wasn’t going to buy it again. The further into the cup I got, the more the taste started to grow on me! Now I find myself reaching for this one in the morning. If there aren’t any goji berries in the mix it’s not as good but next time I’m at David’s I’m purchasing more of this one.
