A soft yellow brew. A smooth cup with a mix of delicate floral and fruity aromas wrapped in zingy undertones.

Hi everyone! Been a little quiet lately despite having bought some new teas, mainly because I’m trying to get through my opened teas before opening the new ones. My Strawberry Rooibos,Strawberry Sencha, Afternoon at the Palace, China Oolong and Rose Petal are all looking for loving homes. Also, I changed my username from melanchocolate, hope that doesn’t confuse anyone!

This tea has been in my cupboard for so long I can’t believe I’ve only just added it to my Steepster cupboard! They serve it in the cafés on campus here actually, and it’s so good I had to order some of my own at the start of the year. It’s brilliantly mellow and smooth, as a white tea, and the elderflower and apricot give it a natural sweetness. The elderflower’s not hugely noticeable but it is definitely present and goes perfectly with the white tea. Even when scalded slightly, this is delicious.

Over the past few days I’ve really gotten into cold-steeping my tea: leaving a bottle of water with tea leaves in the fridge overnight and straining it in the morning so I can take it to work or class with me later. I tried it with this tea but in a hurry, with chilled water in the bottle and the teabag still floating in it- but it’s managed to steep deliciously in barely two hours! With no risk of scalding the tea the elderflower has a chance to really come out over the apricot and tea flavours, and the resulting iced tea is a little dry but very very sweet. This is one of my favourites :D

awwwwwwwwwwwwww I loved Melanchocolate ! No worries I’ll be happy with meliorate as well :)
This iced tea seems really delicate as only good apricot can be.

Hahaha, sorry, maybe I’ll go back to it when I feel in more of a gourmet mood! :D It was wonderful iced, maybe I’ll try again in the summer…

My wonderful boyfriend sent me a bag of this from the UK. Very light and subtle, would be a fabulous afternoon tea. Quite floral which I always enjoy.

A delicious tea – subtle, but full of depth and flavour. The elderflower is my favourite element here, with the after note of sweet apricot adding something fruity! It’s a mellow tea – I drink it when I’m sleepy, or not feeling 100%, or just want to kick back and relax.

It’s not an offensive or assaulting tea, just something nice to sip on a cosy Sunday afternoon while curled up in bed. I bet it would be beautiful cold brewed too!

I don’t have any idea what flavor the elderflower is adding here, but I love the apricot taste! Very light and never bitter. Needs no sweetener. I order 100 bags at a time from the UK. Even with shipping to the US, it’s worth it!
