I really like the look of the dry leaf. White tea I usually find pretty anyway. This one adds yellow marigold petals and pink peppercorns. It is really lovely. The dry aroma is alcohol. I read other’s reviews and some made a ‘scotch’ connection. While hot the taste is much like the dry aroma. I was expecting pie or at least candy, so I am not sure exactly how I feel about it. I had to take my son to pick up his car at the mechanics mid cup. When I returned it was cold. I actually preferred it cold. I could better taste the scotch and the white tea. In addition it took on more of a creamy feel. The aftertaste resembles more of what I consider to be butterscotch.
It is an interesting tea with potential. I just need to tinker and find how to prepare it to suit my tastes.
