drank Garden Aria White Tea by Teavana
176 tasting notes

I have to start off by making a note of how the dry leaves looked. There were whole white tea leaves, but more impressive were the fruit bits. By looking at the dry leaves, I could tell exactly what this tea was going to taste like. You could see every bit of fruit mentioned in the description, but those strawberries! They were huge! It was like somebody cut a strawberry in half, let it dry out, then tossed it in with some white tea. I was really excited to drink this tea just because of how the dry leaves looked with all that fruit in there. And I could smell all the fruit as soon as I opened up the bag. It was very fruity but not artificially sweet.

I have high expectations for this one.

It steeped to a cloudy orange color, like someone diluted a cup of orange juice. It still smells fruity and still not artificial. Now I can smell a bit of peach, even though it’s not listed in the ingredients.

The taste is very light. I can’t really taste the white tea, but I taste fruit. Like the smell, the taste is not overpowering or artificial. I can taste cherries, oranges, peaches (where is that coming from??), and of course strawberries. I like it a lot! I was half expecting it to be bitter from all that fruit, but it isn’t bitter at all. It has just the perfect amount of sweetness.

This is the first Teavana tea that I’ve really enjoyed. Well done!
