|"Light on the pineapple as far as flavor goes nonetheless this is a pleasant white tea great for any time."|
I set up my tea-maker using 4 rounded tablespoons of the blend (the leaves didn't fit easily into my measuring spoon) to 1200 ml of water. I set the water temp to 190 degrees and let it steep for 5 minutes. The resulting liquor is the rich gold that you get with some of the Chinese white teas.
The aroma is a delight. It is primarily pineapple with the lemongrass poking its head up. The pineapple doesn't however make an appearance in the flavor. Instead you get the nuttiness from the tea leaves and the lemon from the lemongrass. There is just a hint of the licorice in a faint aftertaste.
For my tastes I would have really preferred more pineapple but I will admit that this is a pleasant tea. Unlike a lot of white teas, this one doesn't demand your whole attention which makes it great for every day sipping.
