First impressions a little damped by the tea bits that escaped my infuser. This is a broken-leaf tea, so probably best in a sachet or fine mesh infuser. Lesson learned.

It was fine without cream or sugar, though a bit more bitter than finer whites I have tried. The added flavors are nice, though — delicate but not hidden — and suit the white tea flavor nicely.

I happened to like it better with sugar, and surprisingly, even better with cream. Yet there’s still a somewhat astringent aftertaste. I would say it’s nice but not perfect. Probably worth trying a weaker brew next time. (I brew everything stronger than recommended, but for some reason I brewed this especially strong today.)
