5 Tasting Notes
A mellow roobios, with more earth and woody notes than flowers. I didn’t feel that the fruity flavor of the average roobios was as strong as I would like it. It lacks the red punch and strong honey note I expected. This tea also didn’t stand up to a second steeping with much flavor.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Floral, Fruity, Wood
The fruit scents of the tea are wonderful and pungent, once it’s brewed the red flowers add their flavor. The apricot and peach flavor is natural tasting and this is a lovely tea. Cool or Warm this tea is summery and flavorful, sweeten it slightly to enrich the honey notes. I left my second steep longer and the tea darkened and was more astringent, but the recommended steeping allows for the subtler flavors.
Flavors: Apricot, Flowers, Fruity, Honey, Orange Blossom, Peach
The smell of these leaves are amazing, flowers and jasmine. A very subtle white tea with notes of straw, but it quickly weakened after the first steeping which I had left longer than the recommended time. With a little bit of added sweetness some floral notes come alive.
Flavors: Flowers, Straw, Vegetal
