I just had to get the tagalong because it’s just so cute. And I decided to give this one a whirl since lately it’s been pumpkin this, pumpkin that. Finally used up all my pumpkins and made a batch of pumpkin cookies. Had a Starbucks pumpkin latte for (I think?) the first time ever and underwhelmed, so I wanted a shift. Vanilla and lemon, eh? Sounds good to me.
I’ve been running around like a headless chicken preparing to lead a seminar tomorrow, so I unfortunately let the first cup steep for too long. It smelled fabulous though. The vanilla here is gorgeous, like vanilla bean whipped cream or something. Very delicate, but so beautiful. I can smell the rose in the distance, which adds a little extra sophistication.
The first cup tasted too bitter but the second was what I was expecting. The base is the most noticeable, followed by the lemon. Not a sour lemon at all, though. It’s smoothed out and pale.
It’s not a bold tea at all, but in a good way. Like, I can’t really see it offending anyone, so realistically, I can see how this would be a good choice for an event like a wedding. A subtle lemon vanilla white tea is a much better way to go, than say, a pu-erh. But maybe I’m crazy!
