This creation from the ‘Laponic’ Christmas tea collection signed by THEODOR presents a delicate white tea to you, flavored with woody, fruity notes with a touch of aromatic plant, just like the three other blends.

When you raise it to your lips, this blend is sour like a candy and will surprise you with its white and vegetal notes coming from the white tea composing it and the basil accompanying it. This first feeling is counterbalanced by the sweetness of blackberries, of blackberry leaves and the smoothness of a cedar wood flavor, just like the promise of a suspended smile.

When brewed, this blend expresses a transparent delicate copper-orange beverage and offers a round and creamy texture in your mouth. A cup of this flavored white tea will carry your taste buds to the heart of a snowy landscape, for a moment imbued with magic modeled on Christmas season.

The tasting of this Christmas white tea is characterized in your mouth by flavors of blackberry and red fruits, accompanied by a vegetal note of basil.
If you close your eyes, you will feel like if you were transported, with great finesse and flavors, to the heart of THEODOR’s ‘Laponic’ universe, by Santa’s side.

Allow yourself a refined and amazing cup with this blackberry-cedar-basil flavored white tea and add some of Christmas’ magic to your days, while waiting for December to come…

I have had this tea for at least ten months. I don’t know quite what to say. It is….weird.

I LOVE most The O Dor teas, with some of the blends being right at the top of my list, but this one baffles me. I don’t hate it. I wish the tin was empty and I will be relieved when it is. It just tastes weird to me.

In spite of the ingredient list, it does not taste fruity to me. I don’t even know what it does taste like to me. Besides weird.

I tried it hot again a few days ago to see if maybe the first pot I made had been a fluke. Nope, still weird. So I decided to ice it and add sugar and while I WILL drink it just to be not wasteful, I groan when I open the fridge and see it. My husband says it is odd but he doesn’t mind it and is fine with drinking it iced until it is gone.

Yes, life is short and it would probably be better to just throw it away, but we really are not wasteful and try to use, mend, repair, redo, recycle….you get the idea. And as I said, it isn’t vile, it is just super weird tasting to me. I think I have enough leaf for about two gallons. That should use it all up within a week or two. We will see.

Interesting tea I must say. I have found some Czech store selling it too, but it is quite pricey. And I am not really sure if basil leaves and sweets can work together. I can imagine it is super weird for you :)

I also struggle to throw out tea that isn’t terrible but that I don’t like. I hope you get through this one soon!

Martin: I had no idea it was expensive because it was a gift. Even the person who gave it to me didn’t like it when we tried it the first time. I just made a whole gallon of it….iced and sweet. I decided I will probably just ditch the rest. When the smell of the tea makes your heart sink, why keep doing that to yourself? Ha ha! I wish I could taste the blackberry and raspberry that is supposed to be here.@“” I get is….weird.

Leafhopper: thanks! Command decision has been made to drink one more gallon and ditch the rest! When ice and sugar don’t help much, it needs to go.

Leafhopper

That’s probably a wise decision!

Don’t dump it — it’s on my wishlist :) May I have it? I can send something in return.
