reposting this where it belongs, I had two samples on the counter, and this is the one I finished off, not da.ud.e’s xaeoxn.
Such a pretty tea to watch steep. The rosebuds are quite large, and there are quite long green and white leaves in this tea blend. The tea brewed up a nice amber syrup color. There is a slight molasses/maple taste/scent in this. It is so light in taste I can’t tell if it is flavor or just in the smell alone, but I swear it is there. This almost tastes like a caramel black tea, with a strong floral tone to it. My taste buds are acting very strange today as I know there is no black tea in this. Maybe it’s the combination of the mango and jasmine? I know it was in a bag all to itself awaiting sampling. I think I will have to do a second steep to see what other flavors come out of this.
