As I have mentioned before NecessiTeas ship in a nice round tin with the information label on the bottom. I like this tin and it is definitely reusable once the tea is finished.
The brewing instructions call for 5 ...œ 7 minute steeping time, which is a little too long for my personal taste. I think the white tea base starts getting a little bitter with those long brewing times. My preference for this tea is 3 ...œ 4 minutes, long enough to bring out the flavor while preventing the white tea from getting bitter.
This is a nice white tea. The strawberry is not dominant but helps add a mild and pleasant tone to the tea. Mild and light characterize the flavor and aroma. The flavors are there but do not jump out. I really think of this first as a white tea and then the flavorings. There are flavored teas I would not say that about. Since in those teas the flavoring is more dominant and noticeable than the white tea. Strawberry comes through more in the smell than taste.
As I mention regularly the tea has a better and more interesting flavor after it has cooled off some. The taste of the tea is more distinct and noticeable once it has cooled some. Maybe this is a personal preference as I find this true for most teas. Also, I have found that white teas as they cool off have sweetness to them. I like this.
A nice tasting white tea with subtle strawberry flavor. The flavoring compliments the white tea nicely helping give it a mild quality. I recommend this tea.
