This afternoon’s new tea, and another Tealux sample. The description of this one really appealed to me – it’s an almost-mild, spring-like day, and I’m finding myself in the mood for white tea and relatively light, refreshing flavours. This fits the bill perfectly. As usual with a new white, I went for 1.5 tsp of leaf, and gave it 2.5 minutes in water cooled to around 180.
To taste, it’s what I hoped it would be. Light and juicy tasting, with a mild edge of sweetness. I did fear for a moment when I saw jasmine mentioned in the ingredients, but I can’t taste it so that’s okay. The main flavour is actually melon – cantaloupe for sure – and it’s wonderfully refreshing. This would be perfect on an even hotter day, and maybe more perfect still iced. It reminds me of Butiki’s Cantaloupe & Cream a little, so might be a good replacement now that that’s gone forever. Sweet, juicy and delicious! A sample I’ll have no trouble polishing off, and even a potential repurchase!
