6 Tasting Notes
It’s a nice, full but mild (not bitter) black tea, that’s easy and pleasant to drink straight. I got two 16 oz mugs from it, and probably could’ve steeped a much weaker third mug from it if I’d tried.
Flavors: Grass, Hay, Leather, Mineral, Roasted Barley, Wet Earth
Absolutely gorgeous (both the look and the taste). Like most of the flowering teas, I have a little two-cup glass pot that I steep and then continue to top off with hot water as I drink it – I get anywhere from 5-8 cups this way, I think and the flowering teas are robust enough to stand up to being re-steeped that much. It takes this one a few minutes to unfurl, but once it does I think it’s one of the prettiest that I’ve tried. A bit of sugar brings out the honey undertones of the the jasmine in it. It’s one of my favorites so far.
With the right amount of sugar added (my preference with white teas) this was drinkable, but something about the flavor was off-putting to me overall. I don’t think I’ll get this one again for myself, but I also wouldn’t throw it out if it was part of a mixed set or given to me as a gift.
