Chose this flavor from the sampler to buy the large canister, but have been disappointed by the fine texture as it goes right through my finest strainer, leaving my tea gritty! Five-star flavor with one-star quality averages out to a three-star tea experience.
I'm not a sweet tooth but the name of this selection ("dessert selection") is really attractive, so I gave it a shot. I'm very glad I did! This tea is white tea based, so it is definitely not a very strong (bitter-ish) tea. It also has the refreshing aroma of pear and you can definitely taste a hint of lychee. Even people in my family who don't drink tea start to request it during cold winter days. Definitely worth a try!
