I didn’t approach this initial review with great expectations – I am away from home, and had to deviate from my filtered water and thermometer approach – so it was Chicago tap and eyeballing the water in a saucepan….so theoretically 180F steeped for 4 mins.
That being said, I loved this tea. It did just what it said it would on the packet – soft taste, hint of blueberry and very refreshing aftertaste – so much so that I had to rummage through the trash to check they hadn’t stuck some mint in there (they hadn’t).
None of the metallic/bitter taste I experienced with the other white tea I have tried (Snow Geisha), and no need for any sugar, for me at least it was plenty sweet. As I am sipping it now,, it reminds me of cream soda for some reason. Go figure. No blueberries in that, surely?
All that and 7.5 Oz cost me about 20 bucks, which is a steal compared to where I have been shopping recently,
Best white flavoured tea ever in my limited experience.
