From Whittard of Chelsea

This unusually decadent tea combines delicate white tea with white chocolate pieces from Chilean cocoa butter.

White tea is made from the youngest buds and softest leaves of the Camellia Sinensis, which are left to dry naturally in the sun. This delicate tea comes from the Yunnan and Fujian provinces of China, it has a particular sweetness which blends surprisingly well with creamy white chocolate. Our white chocolate pieces are made from decadent Chilean cocoa butter. They give this tea a luxuriant smoothness, perfect for an afternoon treat.

Another one from the spectacular MissB. Muchas gracias! I was so excited to try this so I purposely left it for near the end. I appreciate a good white chocolate, and the thought of it paired with a delicate white sounded like this would be a sure winner. However, I find the base to be a little too vegetal for my liking. I’m really whiny about that, though. There’s also a a rich butteriness and not sure if it’s from the base, the white chocolate, or a combination of both.

With a different white base, I could see this being a total win. It makes me miss RLT’s White Chocolate matcha.

By the way, I just ate a little square of the white chocolate from the dry leaf and it tastes like a church to me. A church. You know when you walk in and there are tons of candles burning, it has a hint of subtle stale smokiness (possibly from its age) with a waxy note. When I told my mom that this tastes like a church, she totally got me right away and figured that it tastes like wax. Crazy!

Lol on the church taste.

The sweetness of white chocolate is perfectly blended with the delicate flavour of white tea. The smell is incredible, as soon as the shop assistant poured the tea on to the scales it smelt like we were in a chocolate shop!

Great tea when you’re craving something sweet!

Backlog.

Quite delicious – thanks MissB (and Sil for packaging everything up)! This was a sipdown, as I only had one cup of it, but man was it delicious, and I definitely resteeped it at least twice. It did remind me of a tea from Della Terra, I believe – their version of White Chocolate. It also looked quite similar, if my recollection is accurate, with little squarish thin chocolate pieces. Quite tasty though – lightly sweet/chocolatey, with a great, flavourful white base. I had quite enjoyed it from DTT as well, but at least now I know of a second, although very inconvenient, place to get it.

Does a sipdown refer to using up a bunch of different kinds of teas in a short period of time, or simply just drinking a bunch of different kinds and adding tasting notes in a short period of time, lol?

Kittenna

Sipdown is finishing off a specific tea! A bunch of us on here use it pretty frequently. It means our “cupboard number” goes down, haha.

Kristal

I see! I used the term once but incorrectly- I just thought it meant drinking a whole bunch of different kinds in one sitting :)

This was literally beyond belief in-store, at Covent Garden in London. Just brewed it now – thankfully I wrote down it’s a white tea and brewed it at a lower temperature – and it’s just okay. I think it was heavily, HEAVILY sweetened in-store, and I just haven’t done it up as much. Or, that because there are so many bits and pieces to this tea, it’s something I need to brew larger quantities of to get everyowthing in there.

Does it taste like white chocolate? Kind of. It’s creamy and whatnot, a bit of white chocolate -ish, but.. nowhere near enough.

I know it’s a different shop, but the Whittard’s in Newcastle never sweeten anything. They have sugar you can add to the samples if you want it! (:

Thanks MissB and Sil for sharing this with me! I saw Sil’s warning and steeped it at a lower temperature so no complaints there -but it’s really bark-y? I’m sure that’s just because of the base white tea because I’ve had ‘white chocolate teas’ before with white tea and they taste very similar. I liked this cup, but it’s probably not something I’d order more of – mostly bc I’m not big on white chocolate? :D But I’m happy I had a cup. A cup is the perfect amount!

Another tea from MissB that i sadly ruined…so i’ll have to try again. it smells DIVINE! but it IS a white tea…and silly old me went and treated it like a black tea so it was an incredible smelling bitter brew :( the hints of what it would taste like though, lead me to believe that it will be a good one. we shall see!

Red Fennekin

I have a feeling that a friend of mine used to make me this tea when I went around to visit. If so, you’re deffo right about it seeming like a good one – it’s pretty delicious if you brew it “right”! :-)

Sil

that gives me hope lol

MissB

This was unbelievable when I had it in store.
