Default Snow Geisha white tea

This particular blend of white tea hearkens back to my foray into loose leaf teas about 6-8 months ago. To say that I was inexperienced would be fair, however before that I had been using many twinnings blends due to the expense of loose leaf, however on this occasion (read: Christmas) I had requested several teas and received the Snow Geisha as my first.

This is a flavored tea line from teavanna that includes a very subtle white tea whit withered cherry and rose petals. The infusion brings about a sense of ludens cough syrup, a very syrupy cherry aroma that, while not unpleasant, is just a bit overpowering. However upon a mild sweetening (the only way I drink tea) and a taste I was rather impressed. My palate received a much more subtle cherry flavor and the rose flavor was very present. It was effervescent, and soothing. The weather was cold and a little snow so I really found myself feeling the Geisha spirit of beauty and tranquility flow through me (I know Im channeling some great Japanese philosopher at the moment). In all seriousness I would suggest this tea even to a fan of malty black teas, and especially to fans of green tea trying to get into the pureness of white tea. White tea aficionados may find this to be a lesser tea to say a silver needle but I find the flavors blend well. I give it a thumbs up, and suggest it to anyone feeling the spirit of the geisha within them self

White teas are the only teas that have never interested me. But, after that review you have really peaked my interest. I will have to try some very soon.
