From The Persimmon Tree Tea Company

An exotic blend of white peony loose leaf tea, guava, strawberries, marigolds and a touch of ginger completes our White Guava tea. This tea brews a light color and has a beautiful, rich scent with a tropical flavor. As with all of our white teas, White Guava tea prepares nicely hot and iced.

I think I’ve finally reached the point where I have too many tea samples. Or maybe I’m just saying that because I was gone for a week and I came back to 4 boxes of swaps and it all seems so overwhelming. Tea samples are always awesome, but now I’m wondering how I’m going to go through it all. In the meantime, I’m going to try to resist all the upcoming Christmas promotions. 

Anyway, I picked this out from the sample box I got from momo a while back. I don’t have much experience with guava, so I’m really sure what to expect. I’m not getting a LOT of guava flavor in this, I mostly just taste the white tea. It’s not bad, but I’m not picking up on all the notes that everyone else seems to be. Or maybe I’m just not familiar with guava to taste it. It’s not a bad tea at all, though. Didn’t really get a chance to cold brew this since my samples was so small, so maybe I might pick up the fruitiness a little better if it was colder.

As it turns out when I was a little kid I used to loooove guava. I would beg my mother to buy it at the store any time I saw it. This tea is like getting smacked in the face with a fist full of juicy guava bits. It smells like guava, brew like guava and anyone who loves guava should have this tea in their cupboard. I however, in my “old” age have fallen out of favor with guava. I try to love it, but it never loves me back. On the plus side, I don’t fault the tea for that as its a really nice tea, just not to my liking. I’ve enough of the sample that the persimmon tree tea provided to try it cold as well, so I’ll be doing that in case it lends itself to being more of a cold tea that I can drink. I really do love the generous sampls they provide. It really let’s you play with the tea a bit more instead of trying to get everything you can out of a whee little sample. :)

My first tea from the Persimmon Tree!

This was delicious! Exactly like guava, and like others have said, it even has that thick mouthfeel like guava juice does. I thought the amount of flavoring was well balanced…not too much and not too little. I enjoyed it without sugar, which is pretty awesome, since I would rather not have to doctor up any teas other than black teas.

This is a winner! Can’t wait to try the other samples I got!

Btw, I steeped it at 180 degrees for 3 minutes.

Baby Video Game Rant: Playing Dragon Age 2 on Nightmare mode as a first playthrough without playing Dragon Age: Origins is becoming an exercise in frustration. Sigh I’ll probably dump it back down to Hard before my controller ends up in my TV.

Back to tea: I love the smell of this dry. The strawberry is really prominenet with a touch of floral. It’s like a tropical fruity coctail of yum.

I must have cold steeped this too long though because I feel like I’m being punched in the face with ginger. It’s not super zippy aggressive ginger, more like a soft fuzzy teddy bear paw punching me in the face with ginger.

And it’s a weird contrast with the sweetness of the guava flavor (which they nailed). I’m missing the strawberry entirely, but the base adds a nice floral note that would pair well with the guava if I wasn’t getting punched by gingered teddy bears.

Nom nom nom. I wanted something tropical for dessert and this really hit the spot. The pretty dry leaves smell of mango, as does the brewed tea. The taste is very natural. For whatever reason I’m getting mango rather than guava, but that’s just fine by me! There’s also the faintest hint of ginger here to keep it from being too sweet. The tea even holds up nicely to a second steep. Thanks to Stephanie for the sample!

Stephanie

I agree @ mango not guava, but tasty!

Wow, this tea has a lot of positive reviews. I (yeah, I know, I’m a tough critic :p ) wasn’t impressed.

This is a very strong hay/barley flavored white tea with no detectable strawberry flavor. I’m not quite sure there was any guava either, though I don’t remember exactly what a guava tastes like. The description is spot on when it says, “just a touch of ginger”. This is it’s only redeeming quality. I don’t generally like ginger, but it did add just a tiny bite to the white tea, which was nice.

Thanks for the sample CK!
I’m going to give the rest of it to my father, as I think that he may like it.

1.5 tablespoons for 365 ml of water

The white tea flavour slightly overpowers the blend. Sweet guava taste is faintly present on the sip but blooms near the middle of the sip. I’m detecting hints of ginger near the end of the sip.
The flavours do not seem to be properly balanced with the white tea taking over.

Thank you to Sil for sharing with me!

This is another from my Persimmon sample pack I bought. This is pretty good, I haven’t done so well with most of them, so I am pleasantly surprised.
Not much to say. I’m not exactly sure what guava is suppose to taste like, but this is a nice light fruity white tea. I don’t really have any complaints about it. I needed to add some sweetener to bring out more of the fruity, but all in all it’s pretty good.

I got a free tin of this just for sharing something on Facebook. Free shipping too! Tea in the mail with no credit card required! How fortunate that it’s also quite good. I mean, I will probably pay money to buy more when I’m out. It’s a good looking bai mu dan, flavors go starwberry first, guava second, and ginger on the finish. This is a great tea to serve guests who aren’t tea experts.
