This is tasty!
Different than the other Bubbly whites I’ve had, in a few ways. I like it.
First off, I was worried that the dominant flavour would be bubblegum and while that is present, it takes a back seat to the other more complex notes. Something in here is most definitely reminiscent of champagne! I credit that partially to the aroma, but also to the mild grape like taste. Grape skins perhaps? Hmmm. Most surprising is the sparkling sensation on my tongue. How on earth did they achieve that?! Yup, I even get a wine/drying sensation in the aftertaste.
Second, the white tea is blended beautifully. So delicate, and yet not overpowered. There is however, something odd going on… as there is an odd bitter note right in the middle of the sip, and lasting into the aftertaste. Heck, even the aftertaste is complex!
Second infusion was terrible. Milky!! Hopefully it was a one time thing. Bad water? spilled milk from Mums coffee? (my cup was clear… so likely not)
Bah. Lowering the rating a few points. The first steep was great. I’d rate the second one at 65. So reducing it by 4 points is more of a principle thing than anything else. On the plus side, I won’t feel bad taking this one out and about with me! (ie, since I can’t resteep anyhow)
