From my order during BLT’s Anniversary Sale.
It took a little while for everything to arrive because of the on going Canada Post strike, which has definitely put a major wrench in all my Black Friday(ish) period tea shopping arriving in a timely fashion…
I’m assuming what happened with this order is that Bitterleaf shipped it out in multiple boxes since there was so much teaware in this order – I say that because I’ve now received one small box of BLT stuff with a bit of teaware and some tea in it, but definitely not my whole order. So, I’m sure the other box(es) are on their way. I still couldn’t resist breaking into the tea from the order though – and so I made myself some of this at work, just drinking it grandpa style over the course of a few hours while I did some lab testing.
This was an absolutely beautiful white tea; it was so full of flavor! It offered up a really lovely bouquet of fruity notes – like drinking a bowl of fresh cut berries sprinkled with sugar. Just really sweet on top of that lovely, juicy fruit profile. I actually thought it was best, too, after the tea had been sitting in the water for a LONG period of time without being topped up/watered down with fresh, boiling water. Like, I imagine you could cook this stove top in some sugar on produce a REALLY killer fruity, intense, and just a little bit floral “white tea syrup” to use for all kinds of things.
KILLER offering from BLT.
