Very nice blend of fruits and white tea. Even overbrewed, it’s pretty good but bitter. (I tried this at a restaurant and they overbrewed it… but what’s new?)

This tea smells like peaches and flowers upon opening the tin. I was worried it’d be too floral for me, but once brewed, the floral smell is less intense. The floral taste is also very subtle in this tea. It’s not half bad. The peach comes through, although not in a overtly annoying way. It blends in with the smooth, sweet taste of the white tea. As for melon, I suppose it’s more in the aftertaste than anything. I actually prefer this, as most melon teas have an odd, overpowering flavor that I just don’t like. But the melon in this is nicely balanced. I actually seem to be catching its taste right as I am catching the slight tanin taste (don’t worry, it’s not really bitter/astringent, more of a little spark. It’s a smooth, light, and refreshing cup. Perfect after a long night at work, cuddled in bed with a book. I’m actually surprised at how much I’m digging this tea. It’s only been sitting in my tea basket for a month! Might order this again someday. Maybe in the summer, so I can try it iced!
Here’s a hint to those who are nervous to try this tea or are getting bitter results:
Steep for about 2 minutes rather than the suggested time, and make sure the water temp is on the low side! You don’t want to be brewing this tea with water anywhere near 180-200. I’d aim for low 160’s or mid to high 150’s. Mess with it a little, and you can get some nice results.
Trying this iced (one tea bag, approx. 30 oz. water, steeped in fridge for ~22 hours). The fruitiness (peach/berry) is apparent on pouring, from the smell and taste. What is also apparent is the tannins—this is NOT a touch of tannin, this is bitterness. I’m surprised. Cold, it’s drinkable and even pleasant (I like the peach/berry thing!), but not something I would even try hot, now that I know about the bitterness. (I got this in a Mighty Leaf green/white sampler box, and this is the only white in the box. I don’t think I’ll be buying a whole box of it.)
