Received in a Steepster swap with Mel.

Well, it was sweet, and not bad at all. It reminded me of a light white tea, and was so nice and sweet it didn't need sweetener. It really didn't capture my attention or was a memorable enough flavor to leave me craving more but I am very glad I got to try some of this unique tea.

Rating: 2/4 leaves

Leaf system:
1=Bleh! not again if it were free
