Another white tea sample to try today. I’m not often in the mood for a white tea but today I find it appealing, perfect excuse to clear some of my sample stash.

The raw blend had a sweet fruity scent, very exotic and fresh.

Once steeped the tea is pale yellow in colour and has a sweet but delicate berry scent, much nicer and softer than it’s raw form. It’s like a fine nectar in scent, perfect balance.

Wow. It’s very creamy with the right amount of sweetness (for me) and the fruit carries on lingering throughout the after taste. The berry is definitely the strongest fruit flavour but I can also taste the papaya, also peach like. It reminds me of something but I can’t remember what, could be the mango kulfi I used to buy but I can’t be certain. It does has the right creaminess to be compared to ice cream. Plus for being not a huge fan of white tea I can’t taste any in this at all, yet I appreciate that it still contains it.

Such a delicious tea, no harshness or chemical flavours, nothing out of place. I can’t fault it, and it is something I would buy in the future. Every sip leaves my mouth wanting more, been a long time since I’ve had a blend have this effect on me. Bravo River Tea.

Yes! This blend deserves all the love!

It really does :)

Plus I think I worked out what it reminds me of, I used to buy some chewy sweets that were a mixture of berries. I can’t remember the brand but it’s those, they were also very creamy …just as I remember. So delicious!

Yes… I love this one!

Taken me hours but I remember. It tastes like the berry Maoam sweets. Took me a long time to process it but my brain got there eventually.

Tried this iced too, saved enough for one cup, it’s still delicious. Even creamier and sweeter I think than it was before. The white tea is more noticeable too.

Bio

I’m 30 years old from Leicester, England named Kayleigh. I have a wonderful husband called Richard whom I am very lucky to have in my life.

I started off many years ago drinking herbal and fruit teas which over time peaked my interest in trying new types. Eventually I began to import and sample many different teas and cultures which I still do today. My life goal is to try as many teas and ways of having tea as possible.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have six of my own called Cassie, Mr Sooty Pants,Ivory Ruby, Lady, Misty and Ollie.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.

A short list to help swapping with me easier though honestly I am not fussy and am willing to try anything. Plus the notes below are usually, sometimes I love a tea that has an ingredient I tend to dislike and other times I hate a tea that I thought I would love.

Likes: Any fruit but especially melon and orange, vanilla, all tea types (black, green, white etc), nuts (any), flowers, ginger, chai.

Dislikes: Licorice, aniseed, clove, eucalyptus, lavender.

My rating system
I have my own way of rating teas that makes each one personal. I have different categories, I rate each tea depending on what it is made of. For example: I rate green teas in a different way to black teas or herbal teas. So black, white, green, Pu Erh, Rooibos, Oolong, blends and tisanes all have their own rating system. That way I can compare them with other teas of the same or similar type before for an adequate rating. And when I do give top marks which is very rare I am actually saying that I would love to drink that tea all day, every day if possible. It’s a tea that I would never turn down or not be in the mood for. So while I agree that no tea is 100% perfect (as nothing is) I am saying that it’s as close as it comes to it. After all, in my book the perfect teas (or close to perfect anyway) are ones that I could drink all the time. That is why you will find a high quality black or Oolong will not have as high a score as a cheap flavoured blend, they are simply not being compared in the same category.
