Commercial Description

Our delicate Shou Mei white tea is balanced perfectly with a touch of citrus. Dried orange peel results in a sweet and refreshing addition to the citrus flavor dancing amongst the backdrop of the gently floral Shou Mei. Delicious served iced as well as hot, this tea makes an ideal light, summery drink with a twist of citrus.

The aroma is very citrus heavy, it is a little on the artificial side and sadly reminds me of the orange bathroom cleanser I used to use. Underneath the heavy swath of orange there are notes of lettuce and delicate floral.

Tasting the tea sadly confirmed my fear, this tea tastes like air freshener. Now don't get me wrong, I am not such a tea snob that a candy flavored tea puts me off...just certain flavors do not necessarily work. I find that any citrus that is a flavor and not all natural tends to taste too much like cleaning chemicals, but it could be that I have a preference for citrus scented cleaners. Other than the air freshener taste there are notes of lettuce and a tiny bit of orange sweetness. I really like the idea of an orange white tea, just maybe I will hunt one down that just has orange bits in it.

This one is interesting.

Method: 1 heaped tsp. @ 200 degrees, grandpa style. Added more water near the end of the first cup and the 2nd cup didn’t taste weak.

Dry Leaf Aroma: Smells like citrus, but not orange. This smells like bergamot, tangerine, and neroli had a baby. It also has a smell like a familiar candy, but I can’t quite place it to say which one.

Brewing Aroma: Pretty much the same as above.

Flavor: Oddly, I liked this, overall. I’m not always a huge fan of citrus in teas. This one is mellow and pleasant. I could detect some bitterness in the 2nd cup, but that’s probably due to the brewing style, so I can’t fault the tea. I plan to try it as a cold brew tonight.
