Don’t be mistaken; this is a fruity tea. I’m not the biggest fan of fruity teas, but this one is at least quite subtle. The dried tea leaves are not so much – their strong scent almost scared me off the tea entirely. The steeped liquor is the colour of squashed blueberries, a dark-purple grape colour. Its aroma is slightly more reminiscent of pomegranates than blueberries, with a hint of that unique peony scent. Today I’m feeling under the weather, and this tea’s promise of antioxidants suited my desperation to not get sick. White Tiger goes down smooth, and while a break from the orthodox that I prefer, its unique combination of peony, blueberry and pomegranates is somewhat lovely.
