I bought this tea on a whim, just an hour ago, but now that I’ve tasted it, I have to go back and buy at least 5 more boxes. I’m purposely waiting a couple hours before I go back to the same store so I don’t look like a tea-obsessee(which, I most definitely am).
As with most white teas, if you brew this apricot vanilla creme tea hot, it will have a strange sour-ish, bitter, almost metallic-like (aluminum, to be precise) taste. I always avoid brewing white (and often, green, too) teas hot for this very reason.
My favorite way to enjoy this white tea is to simply place the bag in room-temperature water. The apricot flavor will infuse into the water within a few minutes, so you don’t have to brew this overnight. It’s a lovely treat at anytime of day with any meal. I’m currently on my 2nd cup of this tea with the same bag, and I suspect I can pull at least another 2-3 more cups (most likely, even more) as a coldbrew.
