Comfort in a cup. The white tea is light and refreshing. The mint is dominant, but pleasant. At first, I did not notice the ginger at all, but after several sips I felt it in the back of my throat. It was warm and stayed there well after I had finished my cup.
Last year this was one of my favorite teas. Now I’m looking in my cup wondering if there’s any actual tea in there. There is a strong mint flavor and then… nothing. I know that a good white tea could easily work with the mint, so I find this really disappointing. Maybe I just know what good high quality tea taste like now, or maybe last years White Christmas was superior to this year’s. Regardless, I will be moving on to other holiday teas.
I dropped the rating to reflect my current opinion of this tea.
So happy to sit down with a mug of this tea. Spent the better part of the morning cleaning my yard of branches that came down during the hurricane. Thankfully, that was the worst of the damage for us. Anyway, it’s great have a warm cuppa in my hands. The peppermint is perfect. It relaxes and invigorates me at the same time. As far as bagged teas go this is one of my favorites. I’m going to have to stock up on it this year. Last year I threw myself a little pity party when the stores stopped stocking it.
