The sub-tropical valleys of the Assam region of Northeast India is the inspiration for this exotic and alluring blend of rare white Assam and Indian green tea, punctuated with the taste of ripe, luscious plums and delectable strawberry leaves. Hand-picked rose petals round out the sweet fullness of this bright, delicious cup.

I like plums,but I don’t like this one.The dry leaf smell like real dried plum(/prune),not too bad ,but somehow it makes me think that it is salty.The tea is astringent and a bit of smoky,which makes my throat not so comfortable,plus the plum aspect taste salty and bitter and astringent and a little bit too much,not my beloved fresh fruitness or sweetness. I suppose I won’t buy it any more.
I see (or rather I smell) why it is called that. It smells heavenly. Like walking through an area of plum trees. Light, airy, fruity. The taste is only a hint of that, it is more bitter than anything else. Not like when you steep a green tea too long bitter, more like bite into watermelon rind bitter. So it’s bittersweet. Literally. I only steeped for 2.5 minutes (2-3 is the recommended time on the tin). Sugar makes it so much better and you can really tastes the plum.
Okay, I actually do like this one. Phew!
It tastes sweet and fruity. I’m getting notes of toasted coconut, plum blossom, and licorice. Interesting.
Again, I’m glad I don’t have a whole canister of it, but I wouldn’t mind drinking this one again. It leaves a pleasant taste in the mouth. Good plain, excellent with a little honey.
Flavors: Coconut, Licorice, Plums
This tea was surprisingly delicious! I added to one of my favorites and out of the five samples, it was my favorite. Read the full review here: http://www.abbisiler.com/tea/ambrosia-plum-zhenas-gypsy-tea
I’m generally not fond of white teas, this was no exception. The plum and rose give this one a very sweet aroma in the tin and cup, but the flavor isn’t well balanced. I’ve tried adjusting the temperature of the water, but to no avail. It’s fruity with tartness that isn’t awful, but lacks all the clean refreshing flavor of a green or white tea. It just becomes kind of a vaguely sweet tart mess of flavors for me. Which is alright iced, but otherwise, not so much
This is a wonderful blend of white Assam and Indian green tea. It’s very sweet, very refreshing and for me it was one of my first white teas that was memorable.
I found this tea really aromatic and evocative, and the strawberry leaves lift up its flavour and makes it noticeably fruity. I liked this tea because it was so light and not heavy like some teas can be. I also love the rose and liquorice notes in this blend, and I appreciate that this brand is certified and organic.
Ambrosia Plum feels to me like a spring-time, afternoon tea – a perfect addition to a picnic or tea party.
The fruit-floral scent that this tea produces is remarkably strong at the outset, and the lingering, oddly perfume-y aftertaste will probably not be to everyone’s liking. However, this tea brews a peppy cup that still lets the white Assam and green tea taste peep through from beneath the rose-and-plum melange on top, so it comes across as more fresh and assertive than its self-consciously dreamy name might imply.
(Note: This is not the version of Ambrosia Plum that contains stevia, so if you are like me and run away from low-carb sweeteners then I would suggest this one over Zhena’s Ambrosia White Plum.)
