Got a whole box of this tea from an old roommate. Yay connections!
I knew once I opened the bag that what lay before me was a winding road of depression, anger, and a loooong healing process. The bag itself smelled like bitter gingerbread, which isn’t up my alley, but I can dig it. Both times I brewed this tea it came out extremely dusty. Sadly, I believe this dust is what led to the downfall of this “white” tea. This was not “delicate” nor “orange”…just “spice”. In fact, you could suck on cinnamon bark and get the same flavor profile that this tea expelled.
Much like any bad tea, though, you can make it better by setting it on fire!
