37 Tasting Notes
The flavor is citrusy, slightly artificial. Maybe an OK flavor for an ice tea. However, there is some ingredient in here that consistently gives me a headache. Sometimes citrus flavors can do that to me, but not usually the natural ones. Mostly this is cheap nonsense with very little resemblance to real tea.
Great tea, very flavorful for a bag tea. I love cardamom, and wanted to try Pu-erh, so I tried this. I was so happy! It gave me lots of energy (no doubt due to the caffeine content) but didn’t make me feel jittery, just happy. Brought color to my cheeks, meaning it was probably doing my circulation good. A great fall or winter tea.
I really wanted to like this tea. It was the first white tea I ever tried. I’m not sure I like white tea at all. And I don’t think the blend of white tea and bergamot really works. It’s kind of bitter on bitter. The smell of the tea was good, but it didn’t smell like something edible, more like a quality perfume. It’s all natural, so that’s not the issue. Overall, a very perfumy, overly feminine flavor.
And the clue that maybe white tea isn’t for me is that I kept over-steeping it to try to get some flavor out, which only makes it bitter. If you love white tea you may love this, I don’t know.
Top-notch Chai. I recommend finding some molasses sugar or equally dark type of sugar and blending with it. Then I add a little pinch of vanilla-sugar. For a rich version, try half-and-half. It also works with soy. I’m looking into buying an aerolatte to make chai lattes.
Note: you can’t cheat and steep this like normal tea. The spices won’t come out and you’ll be extremely disappointed.
