40 Tasting Notes
I ran out of this but need to log it before I remove it from my cupboard. This is a smooth, comforting tea for mid-morning. The blueberry flavor combines well with the black tea, and there’s a tiny hint of sweetness that I enjoy.
I would like to have more of this in my cupboard soon.
I got a sample of this, along with other Whispering Pines Teas, as a gift. Unfortunately, I didn’t review it when I drank it, but I remember loving every sip. IIRC, it was smooth and full-bodied, with hints of sweetness.
Reviewing it here to remind myself to buy it again.
I usually dislike jasmine teas, as the jasmine flavor always over-powers any other flavor. This tea, on the other hand, has just a hint of jasmine. It is incredibly smooth, which is a quality I really enjoy in white teas. The liquor of the first steep is quite pretty – almost a rose gold color. The first and second steeps taste very similar, then the third and fourth bring out more jasmine flavor and a lighter liquor.
I got this tea as part of Verdant’s 5 teas for $5 an embarrassingly long time ago, and I’m just now drinking it. Wishing it were still available, but if I know Verdant, there’s another one I’ll love just as much or more.
