In my quest for drinking up older white and green teas, I decided to treat myself to this lovely tea.

The candied apricot and violets are sweet, lightly fruity. The vanilla is super creamy and smooth. The base white tea is lovely-still strong and flavourful but not bitter at all. Oddly enough, I think the vegetal qualities of the base are actually excellent here. Overall, a velvet smooth blend of citrus and vanilla.

As a great bonus, the liquid is a beautiful violet colour.

Flavors: Apricot, Creamy, Fruity, Smooth, Sweet, Vanilla

I am a biochem major hoping for a career in research genetics and evolutionary biology. I love science fiction and spend too much of my time reading comic books. I’m a passionate keeper of spiders, cacti, and exotic plants. I eat a vegan, plant-based diet for moral and environmental reasons (I mention this only because it is relevant to which flavoured teas I drink).

I drink mostly flavoured and low caffeine teas/tisanes, but I will try anything twice. As far as pure teas go, I gravitate towards whites, yellows, and jade oolongs. I’m always open for trades and sample sales/exchanges. Message me any time :)

My cupboard is mostly up to date. For a more comprehensive list, see my stash spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-HjWKR3um-xEnj6HC9vMvKXOAyj_bpW5u_2ixEC20-k/edit?usp=sharing
