The photo is slightly deceptive because it doesn’t show all the beet powder that is in this. When I received this tea in my 8th edition of Postal Teas, I was kind of surprised by all the hot pink dust that was inside.
As I mention in my full-length review of this tea: http://sororiteasisters.com/2014/11/26/beauty-the-beet-white-tea-from-lemon-lily/ – It kind of looks like freeze dried lipstick that had been pulverized into a powder.
When you steep the tea, it becomes a ruby red. It almost looks like it has hibiscus in it, but it doesn’t. (Thankfully)
A very interesting tea. I taste rose and lavender. The beetroot softens the flavors and gives the cup a sweetness and accents the earthiness of the white tea.
It’s a pleasant cup and certainly unusual.
