I went into Teavana because I wanted to get into white teas. (I’ve been drinking green tea for nearly 10 years and it was about time for a change). The lady in the front of the store had a sample of this blend. My first impression of it was, “sweet” but not too bad. When I put in my order, they also pushed for their German Rock sugar… which I declined.
I tried this tea hot and cold. To be honest, I enjoy this tea cold without adding the extra sugar. Taking it ‘as is’ is already sweet enough for me. The smell is bright, overwhelmingly fruity – more citrusy, with little hints of floral notes. The color is pinkish and looks really pretty when I’m steeping the tea in my “Claire Teapot”.
