Every now and then a tea comes along that really surprises me, and reminds me that I shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, nor a tea by its packaging. True, this is a bagged tea. Plain old fashioned paper bags, tea bag paper is related to paper found in milk and coffee filters. It is made with a blend of wood and vegetable fibers.
But don’t let the fact that it’s a bagged tea distract you from the best and most important part of this tea: its wonderful flavor!
Salada has started with the most delicate and floral white tea for the base of this blend, lending almost a jasmine-like whisper to the background of the tea. The white tea is prominent and flavorful. The plum flavoring and plum juice are incredibly yummy. Thirst quenching, juicy and mouth-watering! I was really amazed at just how much this tea tastes like a ripe, juicy plum.
Salada describes this tea as:
Delicate white tea leaves are infused with the slightest touch of plum juice from exotic Asian Plums to create a delicious taste sensation with a soft and sweet aroma. Salada 100% White Tea is meticulously hand-picked in the cloudy mountain mists of China. Known for the silvery whitish appearance, white tea comes from new buds plucked before they open. One of the least processed teas, white tea is recognized for its exceptional antioxidant properties. Each cup contains 165 mg of flavonoid antioxidants, so it is just right for today’s healthy lifestyle.
Other Ingredients: Blackberry Leaves, Natural Plum Flavor
This tea has a very light, fruity aroma which is very pleasant. The flavor is light but intense, with a strong plum finish. Great as an everyday tea, a rare feat for a white tea! And the price is more than reasonable also, and individually packaged for convenience on-the-go.
