The first time I tried this, I went with the Verdant steeping guidelines, but I found the cup a bit underwhelming. One and a half teaspoons at three minutes at 175 worked a lot better for me!

I really like floral teas, so I enjoyed this quite a bit. However, if you don’t like floral, you’ll probably want to back away slowly; the aroma and taste are extremely flower-powered. Jasmine and rose flavors play pretty nicely together, and the end of the sip is free from that astringency that you sometimes get with jasmine teas. I didn’t get any vanilla from this, but I did like it quite a bit!

Flavors: Floral, Flowers, Jasmine

I’m a 24-year old grad student who’s been drinking tea since I was itty bitty and having tea parties with my grandmother. Got serious about it my freshman year of college and have been exploring the wide world of loose-leaf ever since!

I like pretty much anything, really, except for blends that are super heavy on the sugar. The only thing I’ve ever truly hated was Teavana’s JavaVana Maté. As Scary Terry so famously said, these halves don’t belong together.

My ratings are pretty arbitrary. Anything above an 80 I like enough that I’d probably buy it again at some point after I run out; anything above 90 basically gets an A. Anything under 70 and I probably didn’t like it too much.
