I got a small packet of this from Liquid Prost during his experimental box sale. Thanks!
For some reason I was totally brain farting and didn’t think of it as a white tea with grape flavoring, so I was opening the package and was like ‘OH! This is white tea, it’s been awhile since I’ve had white tea’. Yeah.
The dry leaf is very grapey smelling, but I wouldn’t really describe it like fresh grapes. At first I was reminded of kool-aid, or watered down grape juice. It’s not super sweet smelling like raisins though. The smell becomes a little fresher when the tea is brewed, but only in the way that it’s less artificial.
The brewed liquor starts out a vibrant pale green. So lovely to see, and if you let it brew a bit longer it becomes yellow-green. The flavor/scent of the brewed liquor is like that of japanese muscat gummies, or Grape Hi – Chew candies. The base was a smooth white tea, which I can’t really say much about honestly. The swallow was not drying and creamy. I liked it better when the tea was cooler, the flavoring and the base really shines through when it’s warm to lukewarm, versus when it’s still fresh and hot.
I liked it, but not enough to purchase again.
