drank Cucumber White by Tazo
771 tasting notes

So there was a free box of this in the kitchen area at work so I took a couple of bags to try, although white tea is usually not my preference.

I can taste the lime in this but the rest of the flavour is pretty unpleasant. Bitter and sour. And I don’t think it’s just because white is not my normal cup of tea (pun intended). It’s possible I steeped it for too long, but I don’t know that that would have helped very much. I steeped it at as low a temperature as my water heater goes so it can’t be that. I don’t know. I don’t like this tea and I will not be having it again. I’m contemplating pouring out this mug.

ETA: Added another spoonful of sugar and that cut down the bitterness. Still, there’s now so much sugar in this blend that it’s basically unrecognizable now so I’ll not up the rating too much.
