Golden Moon Tea‘s White Ginger is a blend of hand-plucked white tea along with ginger root.
Adagio Teas has this astrological tea blend series that I really wanted to give a try. As a Pisces, I was drawn to the Pisces blend.
There’s a lot of flavors going on here — citrus, chamomile, black tea, rooibos, etc. — and sadly, the taste is more similar to what you’d find from a regular supermarket black tea. I really wanted to like this, but…nope. I’m not a fan.
While I do have a lot of teas that I’ve gotten either through the mail or from a specialty tea store, I’ve also got some teas that I just picked up from a supermarket (well, if you can call Cost Plus World Market that).
They have a decent selection of loose leaf and bag tea, and when I saw this bai mu dan, I had to give it a try. Bai Mu Dan is a great intro to white tea with a light, flowery taste!
Teavana’s Youthberry is another one of these multiflavored blends that has a lot going on in one cup. Flavor-wise, it’s pretty similar to Blueberry Kona Pop. The difference here is the white tea.
The delicateness of the white tea plays very well with these flavors, so it’s not super heavy. Just make sure to brew it properly (175 degrees for no longer than 2 minutes)!
Yum! If you’re a fan of cantaloupe or honeydew, then I think you’ll really enjoy Golden Moon Tea’s white persian melon.
It’s a shame they don’t sell this tea anymore, because it’s quite good. They’ve paired delicate bai mu dan with just a whisper of persian melon extract. The result is super fragrant, and it makes for a light and crisp cup of tea. Lizzy Kate’s white cantaloupe would probably be a good substitute!
