100 Tasting Notes
This is the first sample I’ve tried from Teavivre (who I have to thank for being so amazingly generous, especially Angel) and it’s hands down the best white tea I’ve ever tasted. It was light and refreshing, absolutely gorgeous! It’s definitely hooked me from the first sip. The second steeping was just as good as the first as well. A definite keeper.
I have a cup or two of this before bed in the evenings. A really nice and calming tea. After reading the description, I’m actually wondering whether mine has been mislabeled? I get quite a bit of fruit, specifically peach, and the chamomile is the only note I can detect from the ones listed. I’m almost out, so will investigate when I’m next in the store.
I bought a tag-along of this as I really wanted to give it a good test run. It smells AMAZING! It’s almost not fair, as I’m not sure anything could live up to that scent. The taste is pleasant and smooth, but I do find myself willing it to be more vanilla-ry to match the scent. I’m still on the hunt for my perfect vanilla, but this is a nice place filler for now.
I decided to re-review this tea, now that my tea palate has expanded.
Wow! Holy artificial lemon flavor batman! There’s also a fake honey scent that I don’t love. The green base isn’t bad by any means, but it’s not fantastic. Between Twinning’s wide stretching availability and the base, it could do as an intro green. Heck, I really liked it way back when. I tried making an several iced pitchers of this (both traditional hot brew and cold brew methods) last year and it was horrible not matter which way I did it (and how much sugar or honey added) – just as a heads up if someone was looking for a cheap green to make iced tea out of, this is NOT it!
Below is my boring review from 2 years ago. I scored this tea “80” at the time.
This has been my staple green for a while, and although I’m probably going to move on to greener tea pastures, I would imagine that I’ll always have a box in the house.
