dragonwaterwhitegreenwinter.jpg"Elegant blend of white and green teas with a toasty cinnamon, apple flavor that reminds one of winter. Contains Pai Mu Tan (White Peony), Sencha, and Lung Ching (Dragonwell)." The ingredients are rounded out with the following: green tea, white tea, cinnamon, apple pieces, and natural flavoring (may contain dairy). Toasty cinnamon and apple flavors are ones that I like and I wanted to try it, so I got some of this on a recent order to Dragonwater when I stocked up on some of their Pumpkin Rooibos (OMG good)!

First of all, this smells incredible both in the package and steaming from my cup. I enjoyed this so much that I drank the better part of sample at this sitting. This is light and and does have notes of apples and cinnamon. The apples are not tart and the cinnamon does not dominate, but just kind of rounds out the delicate but phenomenal flavor. This is kinda apple pie-ish and I think I pick up on some hints of caramel or something too. This tea blend really works--and I don't detect any grassy or overpowering vegetable taste. This is pretty delicate and I would push the steep time out to a full 3 minutes and maybe use a little more tea than recommended to get full flavor.

This is one of those teas that I feel could be named better but I can't hold that against it. This is already a favorite and I will definitely get more on my next order to Dragonwater. It is a tad pricey at $14 for 1/4 lb, but it is well worth the splurge---or at least check out the 1/2 oz sample for $2 (I'm pretty sure you will wish you had just splurged on the 1/4 lb). Btw...they also state that this is good for multiple infusions if that helps you justify the splurge.
