This is a lovely looking tea. I have it in a clear jar (Kept in a nice dark cabinet) and it just plain looks lovely. Aroma is flowery and nice gunpowder tea. Touch of lemon, as well as, the floral scent. Taste is well balanced. I always worry about anything that has rose in it because some times they sneak those tart rose hips in there. Luckily, there is no tartness from the rose. It’s a very comforting tea. No bitterness, no odd notes of flavor you can’t identify. I am enjoying it on another cold (Snowy!) Spring day. I mean really… It’s the middle of April! The temp was 21 degrees this morning. It was 75 degrees two days ago!!!! (Hey, can anybody tell me how to make the degree signs I don’t have to write degree all the time?)
I like this tea but I like fruity teas rather than floral, so this is not one of my favorites. I resteeped and it was still very good. One problem I have with the Breville is that I have to make any tea with a two cup minimum. If resteeped, I suddenly have 4 cups of the same tea. I took a quick sip of the resteep and then put the rest in the refrigerator and I’ll see how it tastes. Not a cold brew, just a chilled tea. I’ll try a cold brew another time. They recommended 1-2 tsp. and I went with 2 tsp/cup.
