Is there white tea in this tea?
David’s has this thing where the flavoured white teas contain like a teaspoon of white tea in a bucket of fruit mix. And yet the cost of the blend is elevated as if the tea is not just trail mix or a variation thereof but actually white tea. Right then. I just had to get that off my chest.
That said, this was one of my favourites of their spring or summer 2015 line.
I like the light rose vanilla thing going on here. A good balance of flavours which doesn’t taste much of perfume. There is also a bit of bitter undercurrent, which I suppose is meant to provide substance to these light layers. Is it chicory? Dandelion? Plus cinnamon? I need to review the ingredients list again. A familiar taste in David’s teas which I often find repugnant, but here it is fine.
Mind you, I steeped this very briefly a few minutes after boiling.
Because I enjoyed this so much initially, I’ve been saving the small bit that I have left because I think it is no longer available. I am enjoying this cup and will enjoy the next, but the tea is just not as glorious as it was in memory. I had initially been kicking myself that I hadn’t bought another bit of this tea, but I think I’ll get over it.
