I'm not normally a fan of white teas, but one of my 2013 New Year Resolutions was to be more tolerant of white teas (as well as earl greys, but that's a posting for another time).
Once I read the flavors in Rose Mojito (formerly called Amore), I thought I'd give the tea a try. And I'm so glad I did!
Rose Mojito by The Persimmon Tree is light and playful - a blend of refreshing peppermint and calming botanicals. While the ingredients list "rose" as a flavor, I don't necessarily pick out that flavor in each sip. This is a good thing; I'm not a fan of roses, in my tea or otherwise. Rose Mojito just tastes like a mint floral cuppa - a generic floral, which I like.
This used to be called Amore and only recently was changed to Rose Mojito, FYI.
I was able to infuse the leaves twice - and both infusions yielded the same light taste. I know from experience that white teas can be finicky, so I did stick to the 180 degree water temperature, and did brew for three minutes on the first infusion and four minutes on the second.

This was a terrific blend to kick off my adventure into white teas. Are there any others - from any shop - you'd recommend? Comment below or email me!
