June Sipdown Prompt – a white tea

This tea arrived in a box of many teas that I am excited about from Youngest today! Many thanks!

Opening the pouch, the first thing that hits me is the same aroma I found in Fig Formosa Oolong from this company. When you read the description of Fig Formosa they do mention it having grape flavor. I think it must be the very same flavoring as was used in this tea.

I made a pot of tea and poured one cup hot and then flash chilled the rest. The hot cup was a very nice balance of white tea flavor and grape flavor. The grape flavor does not cover up the white tea.

The flash chilled tea initially seemed to have more white tea flavor with a bit of a musky, grape must edge to it. As the tea sat out in the pitcher coming closer to room temperature, the grape flavor and sweetness seemed to grow, although the white tea base was still present.

This is really delicious, makes a great cold tea even unsweetened, and would probably be good sweetened as well.

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about fourteen years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.
