Even though it was white, it reminded me of a black tea. It is a strong white tea and there is a wild flower honey scent, less floral, more honey. The more I drank it, the more I liked it. I don’t usually add honey to my white tea, but I thought for this one, “let’s just try it”. It actually worked quite well. And I steeped it all day – 4 delicious cups. Which is the first and only time I have steeped the leaves again and actually liked the second cup.
