You can be underwhelmed and overwhelmed by things, but why not just whelmed? Well, of all the new white teas from AQTT I’ve had as of later I feel like I’ve generally just been very ‘whelmed’. However, I really enjoyed this one! Definitely the best white tea from AQTT I’ve had in a long time!
I mean, I definitely didn’t think that it tasted like cupcakes at all – but I 100% got both strawberries and champagne from the flavour and I really, really like the two together. The champagne note is really similar to the champagne flavour in another favourite white tea of mine, Tea Desire’s Champagne Cassis. Strawberry notes are sweet and bright. It’s a nice, pleasant flavour as a whole that is really medium bodied and smooth, not a trace of bitterness or astringency. I do wish, a little bit, that I got more cake like elements but I simultaneously feel like that could potentially ruin the flavour that does exist here. I certainly wouldn’t want that.
