I love joining swap boxes because you never know what you will end up when the traveling box hits your doorstep. I recently had a very large box arrive with amazing teas for me to try and check out. This sample was the first one I grabbed and had to try out right away. I’ve heard good things about Octavia Teas but never had the chance to check them out.
White teas and I have been really good friends as of late. There is just something soul soothing about the sweet floral notes they can produce. With the wedding plans and the big day only a couple weeks away, I needed a bit of a cozy soothing tea. So I turned to this beauty.
Acai Berry White is described as being a sweet and fruity tea. That is exactly how it smells. Brewed this up as a white tea with my Breville One Touch and sat down to enjoy.
First sip in and I am greeted with this simple yet lovely berry floral taste that made me happy. This white tea really hit the spot and made me want to snuggle into a blanket and find a fun book to read. What a lovely tea!
The berry notes are very prominent with a backboard of floral hitting you as well, but a softer more gentler feel. This tea would be fantastic for a tea party with all of the fun flavors. Seriously lovely. But do be warned, I did allow this tea to steep to long and before I knew it the tea reminded me of a tutti frutti gum or a kids’ toothpaste. This one isn’t as forgiving when it comes to oversteeping. Just pay attention to it and you’ll have some delicious tea on your hands!
Tea is a passion that quickly turned into an obsession, very similar to my love for polka dots, the horror genre, and anything that is geeky and fun.I drink all kinds of tea and will try a tea twice to make sure I didn't bumble the first infusion.
Besides SororiTea Sisters, I'm also the blogger and genius (I use that word very loosely) behind CuppaGeek, where I review tea, books, and the horror genre.
