Tasters Review:

Halo from The Persimmon Tree Tea Company is just outstanding and AMAZING!!!
It perfectly opened/bloomed the first time around without any imperfections whatso-ever and smelled of blueberry and peaches and that’s on top of the floral aroma…how awesome is that for a blooming tea!!??

I could taste the blueberry, peach, and flowers and it’s very yummy!

I tried a 2nd infusion on this and it was still very tasty!  The only notable difference was the 2nd infusion was more floral.  It was still an overall wonderful flavor tho!

This is probably one of my favorite blooming teas or flowering teas I have tried  to date!  This is VERY special!

Strawberry Cascade Tea from White August Tea Company

Tea Type: White Tea

Where To Buy: White August Tea Company

Product Description:

Awe-inspiring bai mu dan white tea, overflowing with strawberries, rose petals and creamy coconut. The perfect compliment to the perfect day.

Tasters Review:

The smell of this is unique…it’s sort of hard to explain but I would try by saying the rose comes thru more than the other ingredients but you can tell there are other ingredients within this mix…something slightly fruity but not very identifiable based on aroma alone…I think that is because the coconut fragrance interrupts the fruit and the rose overpower both the coconut and the strawberry.   But the aroma is lovely, regardless!

The taste is really wonderful!

The white tea flavor hits you and the strawberry is the prominent flavor on the tongue but it’s still somewhat mellow and isn’t tart at all! The rose comes thru a little too and the coconut takes the back seat but seems to step up to the plate a little more as it cools.

What a beautiful, gently flavored, tasty White Tea!  I really like this!
It’s a great cup – both HOT and COLD!!!

I’m a fan of  Strawberry Cascade from White August Tea Company and I must say I haven’t met a White August Tea I haven’t liked so far!  They have a wonderful selection and LOTS of tasty teas!  They are quickly becoming a tea company suggest to many of my friends!

 

Gunpowder Mint Tea from Jennifer’s Tea Garden

Tea Type:
Green Tea/White Tea Blend

Where To Buy:
Jennifer’s Tea Garden

Product Description:

Gunpowder Mint
Type: Green Tea
Caffeine: Low
Flavor / Aroma: Smoke and Mint
38-50 servings
4.0 oz

Ingredients: Green Tea, White Tea, Mint, Jasmine, Natural Flavorings

Tasters Review:

The dry aroma of Jennifer’s Tea Garden’s Gunpowder Mint Tea is  Smoky, Minty, Green Tea, White Tea, Floral…yes…I can smell all of those things with a single sniff!
The wet aroma is more of a stereotypical gunpowder tea smell…with a little extra something…maybe it’s the combo of the Jasmine and Mint I am smelling.
The color: is a light Yellow-Green.
As for the taste…this has a unique gunpowder type taste.  It’s not a gunpowdery-grass-smoky as some are but the mint is very nicely done and not too over the top and the Jasmine gives it a little extra something too!  I think the addition of the white tea is also a nice touch!   It’s smoother than I expected…it was a pleasant surprise, indeed!
The aftertaste is NOT grassy…it’s slightly floral-sweet with a very small hint of smoke trying to hide underneath.  There is a lovely smoothness to the aftertaste too.

I really like this tea!  Great job and a THUMBS UP to Jennifer’s Tea Garden!

Spring Harvest from Sanctuary T

Tea Type:
Green/White Tea Blend

Where To Buy:
Sanctuary T

Product Description:

An amazing blend of green tea, white tea and passionfruit flavor.

Tasters Review:

Well, I know I am ready for Spring!  Are you!?  It’s been an overly trying winter across the United States.  I have always lived in a snow belt area but this year has been the worst I have see in a long time.  The worst part is…I HATE WINTER…I’ve always hated winter…I HATE snow…I will ALWAYS hate snow!

So – needless to say – I can’t wait for Spring!  I can’t wait for nice weather!  I can’t wait to see the blooming of flowers, the sun beating down, green grass, and wildlife again!

In the meantime this tea helps.

Spring Harvest from Sanctuary T is a Fruity Green and White Tea Blend.  Mostly Green tho and I am ok with that.  The green tea is almost buttery and quite smooth going down.  It’s slightly tropical minus the stereotypical coconut tropical flavor.  I suppose that would be one way of describing it anyways.

Yes!  This sure helps me THINK SPRING!!!!

Tea has saved the day again!  Here’s to SPRING!  CHEERS!!!!

White Lemon from Shanti Tea

Tea Type: White Tea

Where To Buy: Shanti Tea

Product Description:

WHITE LEMON

Fair Trade Certified & Organic White Tea

Tin / Bio-bag: 45g / 57 cups • Sample: 5 to 7 cups

A full leaf white tea, this is a super smooth brew with a full mouth feel. The lemon essence is distinct but not to the point of overwhelming the mild flavor of the base white tea. A perfect balance of flavours with plenty of anti-oxidants.

Story

The exact origin of the lemon has remained a mystery, though it is widely presumed that lemons first grew in India, northern Burma, and China. In South and South East Asia, it was known for its antiseptic properties and it was used as an antidote for various poisons. Today, India is the largest producer of lemons and generates 16% of all lemon and lime output worldwide.

Tasters Review:

White Lemon from Shanti Tea…another lovely Shanti offering!  Ahhh!

Dry this smells a little like Lemon Pledge and White Tea. It’s Very Clean. (no pun intended)

Post infusion…it’s more of a gentle lemon and white tea aroma!

This tastes wonderful!  Of course, I like lemon, so that helps!  The White Tea is PERFECT and the Lemon just makes it even more tempting!

I had 1 cup hot and another cold and LOVED both!

If you are a fan of white tea you will not want to miss this unique tea. Grown on the edge of our tea farm, this wild white tea is creamy and flavorful with a sweet finish, delivering pleasant energy.

Tasters Review:

Plain and Simple…this is a great white tea!  It’s Fresh, Pure, Pretty, Tasty, Smooth, and has somewhat of a floral aftertaste.

The aroma before, during, and after infusion does have a different nose to it…and by different I mean “it’s own” and it really is beautiful!

In a way it reminds me of a friend of mine…unique, sensitive, and fun to be around but she has a wild side, too!

If you are a White Fan Tea…try this one!  If you have tried White Teas before and have found them lacking…perhaps THIS is the White Tea for you…as it offers MORE than the average White Tea.
