Found the very last teabag of this in my cupboard (I’m at home, meaning the majority of my tea collection is at uni: I’m scavenging a little through my old blends here!) so I’m giving it a shot as I’m craving white tea.
Last time I had this I’m not sure my white tea brewing methods were too great, so I took extra care not to use water that was too hot here. It’s smelling a lot more fragrant than I ever remember; the rose and bergamot are certainly distinguishable, the rose more so. But it’s beginning to smell like a bath soap.
Taking care with the water temperature and brewing time here has definitely helped- it’s now soft, rather than harsh, although it still tastes like a Lush product! The white tea is hardly present at all except maybe in a slightly toasty background but the rose tastes all-consuming here! Even the bergamot seems to have tossed in a vaguely citrusy edge and run from the perfume-y flavour of it all. Ah well – it wasn’t such a bad experience this time. It was good while it lasted but I don’t think I’ll be making an effort to buy more of this. Cheers, Will and Kate!
