Finally finished this sample, and it’s been a good yet brief run. I have the last 2 tsp cold steeping in my fancy new double-walled glass mug (when I found a tea shop in Bellis Fair mall I inexplicably gravitated towards it). I wish the blueberry were more sweet, but I need to tone down my obsession for sweet teas. Goodbye Blueberry white, hello White Tiger?

This is a generous sample! And it has such a nice aroma in the bag and in the cup. Very mild flavour, but that seems to be the case with the flavoured whites I have tried. The water temp at work is also probably too hot, so that could have an effect on what I’m tasting now. Brewed at home, 2 mins brings out just enough flavour, whereas anything less seems too weak. I haven’t tried re-steeping yet, but I am doubtful it will be as nice as the first infusion. Overall I quite like it!

My first oolong <3 This is so delicious and light! I wish I would have brought more with me to drink throughout the night. Oh well! Gonna have to rely on multiple steepings :)

I LOVE the fennel and licorice dance going on in my mouth when I drink this. I also love how the chamomile isn’t over-powering (I can barely taste it, but for me that’s a good thing). I may or may not re-buy, mainly because there are a few other chamomiley type teas at Davids that I need to try. This herbal doesn’t withstand re-steeping, so I use a little less than recommended and let it sit a couple mins longer. Tastes comforting :)

drank Honey Bee by DAVIDsTEA

I’m drinking this with no sweetner today, and it’s just fine. Honeybee is nice and all, and it’s not bad on the second steep either. I don’t think i’ll refill this when it’s gone though. Just doesn’t get me “excited”, so to speak.

Fish. No idea how I made it taste like fish but it does, and that’s not exactly what I was looking for. Maybe Sencha isn’t my thing. I haven’t had many green tea experiences other than flavoured greens, so I’ll try to muster up the courage to brew this one again and use a shorter steep time.

Update: Never tried this again because it made a nice gift to the boyfriend’s parents. And I always need an excuse to try something else ;)

drank Bamboo Shoots by TeaFrog

Cargo and James had a bamboo shoots green tea that hooked me entirely. But since I no longer live in Edmonton or anywhere near C&J, I found this version from Teafrog online and it’s quite acceptable, if not almost identical to C&J’s blend. It also looks exactly the same! Jackpot :D This tea has a sentimental place in my heart. The delicate perfume aroma brings me back in time to when I had my first cup, and I can likely credit this as “the tea” that got me into tea in general.

Yes…this is nice. It’s growing on me after every cup. Not great with the re-steep. Actually, this is the kind of tea you WANT to forget about and let steep for 15 + mins.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 8 min or more
