It was a long day yesterday, so I was delighted to come home to find this package on my doorstep. It is my first sample from 52 Teas, and to be honest I didn’t know if it was going to be amazing or disappointing. Novelty teas can go either way.
First impression was that the tea smelled really interesting! I don’t know if it would have screamed grapefruit to me if I hadn’t known, but it definitely has a tangy zingy smell with a hint of sweet.
I have not had many white teas so I don’t have much to compare this to, but I had read that whites should be brewed at a lower temperature than my usual blacks, so I did that and enjoyed a cup before bed.
The tea is light and was comforting. I’m looking forward to trying it again today to get more of an impression of it, since I was quite tired last night.
Edit: day two. I tried it again. It just doesn’t taste like much. I even tried both a 7 and 10 minute steep time, sweetened and unsweetened, and hot and cold. If anyone figures out the key to this one please let me know.
