First steep (yesterday) was very floral; lots of soft rose in here like only the French do in their teas. Do I enjoy floral teas? Not particularly. So, this surprised me with its gentle softness and delicate flavors.
I gave a bit to the lady I’m staying with to try, who didn’t like it. “Too floral”.
Second steep (today), just as dark of a tea, less tea-tasting, more rose and softness today. I wish I had another word for it, but that’s all I’ve got.
IF you enjoy lightly scented, delicately floral teas, I’d definitely try this. High rating is for the tea quality – it’s truly up there – not for my liking of it. It’s not the tea’s fault that I don’t like florals… I can still recognize and respect it’s beauty and feel.
First steep 3 min, 2nd steep 5, rounded it to 4.
