I must say... I like flavored teas a bit more than many of the members here, so I'm probably more charitable in my reviews than most would be. When in Teavana, I often sniff different teas for fun. I thought the Snow Geisha smelled divine as I am a cherry freak, so I did buy a couple of oz. a year or two ago. It was not subtle at all to me... brewed up with a massively prominent artificial cherry flavor. I was very disappointed. I ended up blending it with some unflavored white tea at a ratio of about 5:1 and it became much more soft and palatable. I never got the scent out of the tin despite numerous soakings, bleachings, dish washer, sun exposure, baking soda, etc.
So, at the risk of disagreeing with Disillusioned... I don't suggest this one for someone looking for subtle flavor or the ability to actually taste the delicate flavor of a white tea... I suggest picking something else. Adagio's flavored whites are much more natural-tasting, much gentler on flavor.
