My first First Flush & my first tasting note here on Steepster! I grabbed a sample of this in the Canton Tea Co sale as I was intrigued by the notes… Nothing like diving in at the deep end when you’re a tea newbie!

I steeped this for 3 minutes with boiling water. The tea is a rich golden colour with a distinct chocolatey aroma. I was pleasantly surprised that I could pick out so many of the listed notes, even as a novice tea taster- definitely floral yet smooth & not overpowering. Contemplating a bigger bag once my sample is used up!
