Tea of the Week for March 28, 2016!
Yeah, try fitting that onto a label, will ya? I couldn’t, so I had to trim the “white tea” off of the label because I figured people could read the ingredients and know what kind of tea serves as the base. (It’s our white peony base!)
This tea was created as a special HAPPY BIRTHDAY for the husband of one of our customers – and this is seriously a big cup of YUM! Well, unless you only pour yourself a small cup. In that case, it’d be a small cup of YUM. But once you’ve tasted it – you’d wish you’d poured yourself a larger cup!
The pineapple is a forward note – as is the kumquat. When I first started sipping, I tasted mostly pineapple but as I continued to sip, the kumquat started to emerge. The ginger is a warm and welcome presence, adding a nice contrast of peppery spice. The coconut – while it seems to be a rather strong scent to this tea (especially in it’s dry form) is not as strong as it smells. It indeed tastes like a ‘topping’ rather than the main event. And the white tea – although delicate – also provides its unmistakable flavor of sweet crispness. This is really lovely!
Taster size is approximately 1/2 ounce.
organic ingredients: white tea, freeze-dried pineapple bits, ginger root, coconut and natural flavors.
