This became my favorite white tea for some time due to the amazing floral notes. But since the strong floral notes were so unique, it was only a “sometimes” tea for when I was in the mood for those flavors. I was sad when Teavana discontinued it, and have never found a suitable replacement since.

This was likely the tea blend that got me into loose leaf tea over a decade ago. Teavana often had this as a sample tea, and while I’m not a huge fan of either of the individual teas alone, they blend perfectly. As someone without a sweet tooth, it’s just sweet enough, and can be enhanced with some rock sugar if you like. Very refreshing for a hot tea, and was my staple blend for many years.

Prepared as family pot tea. A tea I have received from derk. Thank you for second chance to try Teavana tea.
It is in high volume pot and 5 teaspoons in my DIY tea bag.

It’s not bad tea per se, but something is lacking. Maybe I have expected more fruity notes. It’s generic, somehow tropical, lemony, but somehow weak.

I have quite a lot left. I will see how it changes, when prepared for myself. Maybe it needs longer or shorter steeping. I let it steep for about 10 minutes, but I needed to steep whole pot, don’t forget.

Overall, quite average.

Flavors: Lemon, Tropical

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 8 min or more 5 tsp 85 OZ / 2500 ML

The last few tea pots I made were not as flavourful as my normal mug, but I do think I underleafed. It’s a shame this one didn’t work out all that well for you!

Finishing off this sample from Arby with a second try. The first time, I felt it needed a cooler water temperature so here we are.

Still reminds me of a combination of Yunnan black and Chinese green teas. It definitely very light, like a golden needle or similar tea. I get some light bready, malty notes, and also a strong apricot flavor and slight fuzziness, which brings me more to the green side of things. As it cools, it’s almost completely like a green tea. There’s a light floral note at the end of the sip and in the aftertaste as well.

It’s very interesting, but not something I would feel the need to have around given how similar it is to some other teas. Thanks Arby!

Another one from Arby (I think). I’ve never had a yellow tea that I can remember, so this should be quite interesting. The leaves are long and spindly, with a mix of dull grey-brown and light gold. They look fairly similar to a Yunnan black tea, and smell a bit similar too.

This is certainly an interesting one. To me, it’s like a mix between a light Yunnan black tea and a dragonwell tea. The beginning of the sip is more Yunnan, with bread and some malty notes, and a light stonefruit flavor. In the middle of the sip, a strong buttery quality appears, and some nutty dragonwell-esque notes. The end is a little bit bitter, and I probably should’ve steeped this at a lower temperature… A light floral hit in the aftertaste as well?

It’s definitely interesting. Holding off on rating until I can try the rest of the sample with a lower water temperature.

Flavors: Apricot, Astringent, Baked Bread, Bitter, Butter, Floral, Malt, Nuts

I had the ancient tin of Yellow Fairy in my hands yesterday…poor teas so old. I should steep some up.

Well at least with straight teas, they generally continue to taste great for many years. :)

Wow, that’s the most inoffensive, generic tropical fruit flavor that’s ever graced my tongue. I’m sure this is older’n since this was from Teavana but I guess it’s held up ok… Mild, mineral, lightly fruity, barely sweet.
