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.
