Thank you Golden Tea Leaf for this awesome gift!
This is a great fall and sick tea. I tried it straight, and it was a little drying. The orange peel was very prominent like what you would get in an EmergenC package or an Orange Glow wood cleaner-in fact, the autumn leaf quality of the white tea made it more like a liquid version of orange glow more. There was some minerals in the texture, and it definitely brightened my day. However, it paired best with honey because it could get drying. Not astringent, or perhaps every so slightly tart and florally bitter, but drying.
Still-this is one of those panacea teas that could work for this bitter weather, or for a future bitter cold. Golden Tea Leaf Company is one of my favorites, and they will treat you well if you order from them.
