Leaf Type: White
Where to Buy: Samovar
Organic white tea, organic osthmanthus flowers, organic jasmine flowers, natural peach flavor and natural essential oils of orange and tangerine blended in the U.S.
Flavor Profile: Consummately floral, with notes of fresh citrus, white peach, white pepper, toasted amaranth and a trace of fresh blueberries.
This is a beautifully floral tea – I love how well the jasmine and the osmanthus work together. It creates a light and lively flower-y essence that is not sharp like some floral notes can be, and because of the fruit-like flavors of the osmanthus, the flavors here do not come across as soapy.
The white tea is very delicate here. There is a whisper of vegetation to this tea that is barely there, mostly what I taste from the tea is the white tea sweetness with a hint of spice. It sits in the background, making its presence known without being too obsequious.
The peach flavor is the real star – I love how it shines through! It tastes like a fresh, ripe peach, bursting with flavor! The citrus tones of this tea bring a little tangy flavor to the cup, just enough tart to keep it from being too sweet.
This is a lovely white tea. It is one that was sold out at the time that I wrote this review, I do hope that the supply will be replenished. It is a fantastic springtime tea!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
