Taster’s Review:

When I saw the ingredient list for this 1000 Cranes White Tea blend from Zenjala Tea Company, I was intrigued.  It seemed like a really unique blend:  strawberries and coconut, rose and Bai Mu Dan tea.

Visually, it’s a really beautiful blend.  The white tea leaves are some of the freshest looking Bai Mu Dan leaves I’ve yet to see!  They vary in color from light green to pale beige and each leaf is covered in tiny, soft white down.  The rose petals are plentiful in the blend, and it makes for a very pretty contrast with the white tea leaves.  I also see lots of coconut pieces and bits of dried berry.

The aroma of the dry leaf is very nice – I smell roses and berries and coconut!  The brewed liquid has a much softer scent, but I still smell the rose.  The pale, golden liquid also has a slight earthy note to it, reminding me of the fragrance I might experience if I were to walk through a garden of roses after a light rainfall.

The flavor is quite pleasant.  The rose and berry are the two strongest flavors, and I notice a soft, creamy coconut note coming through about mid-sip.  The flavor of the white tea is present throughout the sip as well, offering a slight earthy, hay-like flavor that mingles with the other flavors in an agreeable way.

I like that I taste the white tea and as I continue to sip, the flavors of the white tea emerge more.  This tea is not all about the flavoring, and one might think it would be, what with the strong notes of strawberry and rose, but, this tea is not just a celebration of fruit and flower, but also Bai Mu Dan!

So far, I’ve tried a couple of teas from this company, and I’ve been very satisfied with what I’ve tried.  I look forward to trying more from them in the future!

Co-Founder/Co-Creator of SororiTea Sisters, Mad Tea Artist at 52Teas
Anne (aka the Mad Tea Artist) has celebrated her 29th birthday for many years now. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her hubby and her youngest daughter. Her oldest daughter is married and has bestowed Anne with the proud title of "Gramma" and her grandson is about the cutest boy you ever did see.

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!
