I’m all about bold flavors, as I don’t think I have the greatest sense of smell, so I’m a big fan of this one. The dry leaf smells amazing, the taste is mostly apple/berry , the floral notes are there but are subtle to me (and I love hibiscus and rosehips) I do notice that unlike some of my other teas it can turn bitter if steeped too long as it it a white tea.
A few of my friends told me how much they enjoyed this tea so I decided to give it a try. I kept drinking it hoping that I’d actually enjoy it but I never did. First of all the smell is so overpowering it almost makes me feel nauseous. Also, even though in theory this tea should taste good, I find the flavor too artificial tasting.
I bought 50 grams of it and I don’t think I’ll ever get through it.
The sample in store was fantastic, light, floral and fruity. My boyfriend bought me a couple ounces (the sales person tried to push more on us, and a tin. It was really awkward) and I got it home and was super excited to try it again. I followed the directions for temp and steep time and quantity and was disappointed to find my cup was watery, weak and just a little bit sour.
I looked around online to see if I could find a better way to brew it, and found on this site that apparently Teavana brews and sweetens their samples differently than they instruct home users to do.
Second time around, I tried more tea and a longer steep time, and was disappointed with an incredibly bitter cup. Then I tried more tea and the original amount of steep time and was back to watery and sour again. So finally, I ended up just straight boiling a gratuitous amount tea for three minutes and adding a little more honey and it’s almost like the sample. I kind of wonder if the sample I tried in store was not in fact a white tea, and perhaps the sales person just gave us white tea because it cost more. Very disappointed. Next time I go in there, I’m going to be a lot more attentive so they don’t lie to me and cheat me.
This tea was not at all what I was expecting and requires too much work to make it palatable.
Okay, so this tea smelled amazing when I first opened the package…and still does. But, with such a great smell I would think it would taste just as good if not better. The tea is very good, but not what I expected. I followed the directions for steeping time and the water to tea ratio and it was very bland. I put honey in it and it was fine, but I believe it should have been naturally good.
What the heck is up with this tea? It has been decently reviewed and I thought it would be a safe bet. However, despite its fruity flavor, it has this weird taste to it. I wouldn’t call it sour…maybe a cousin of sour. It’s just weird. I gave it to someone else since I couldn’t force myself to drink it anymore, and blending it just couldn’t get rid of the awful combination of flavors. Booo.
