Awe-inspiring bai mu dan white tea, overflowing with strawberries, rose petals and creamy coconut. The perfect compliment to the perfect day.
Today was a very busy day, and there are few things that I find more relaxing on days like this than settling down at the end of the day with a cup of tea. This tea is just the right tea for today.
The Bai Mu Dan offers a fresh, delicate taste that is so soft and calming. The combination of the white tea and the hint of coconut gives this tea a sweet, creamy note that rests in the background.
While the strawberry is the strongest flavor of this cup, it is a rather soft flavor – keeping in step with the lightness of the white tea flavor. The strawberry tastes like a sweet, ripe berry, and while this is a little less tart than I expected it to be, I don’t mind it one bit. There is a slight berry “tang” right at the tail of the sip which lingers in the aftertaste. Tangy – but not what I would consider sour or even a strong tartness.
The rose offers quite a bit of its essence to the aroma of the tea but starts off almost non-existent in the flavor. As I make my way to the end of the cup, though, I find that the flavor of the rose builds gradually, and now I experience a lovely, floral note just before the finish. It’s quite nice.
This tea is remarkably refreshing. When I first started sipping this tea, I was kind of on the fence about it, not really sure if I liked it or not, but now as I am almost finished with the cup, I am realizing how much I am going to miss it when it’s gone! I really do like this one a lot! WhiteAugust Tea has a BIG winner on their hands with this one.
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!
