Sample Sipdown! (52)
Continuing with more AQ2T samples! This one is a bai mudan with cherry and apple. I certainly wouldn’t think of those flavors in reference to Wisconsin, but I admit to being woefully ignorant on the subject.
I agree with Kittenna that this has some nice melon notes. I assume they’re coming from the base tea, since melon isn’t mentioned in the description. The white tea is light with characteristic oat-y flavor and a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. There’s also a bit of cucumber alongside the cantaloupe notes.
I am not a fan of the added flavoring though. I have the same issue with it that I do with Paris from Harney & Sons – it tastes a bit chalky and reminds me of mixed berry Tums chewables. I’m not sure why I always have this odd reaction to berry flavoring… It’s unfortunate because I really do like the concept of this tea.
I think I’ll withhold a rating, because I seem to have a strange reaction and association when it comes to certain berry flavorings…
