First of all, this tea tastes absolutely disgusting if you brew it at the suggested temperature (near boiling). I’ve gone through quite a few nests just trying to find the right temperature and time. So I went for a low temperature, and it doesn’t taste bad at all.
It certainly has a bit of earthyness to it, but the main flavor is floral (chrysanthemum). This reminds me of green tea with flowers. The liquor color from this attempt is pale yellow. Which I think is the color range you want to aim for. If it gets much darker (amber almost), you won’t enjoy it at all. Strangely enough, I think the earthy notes add a rustic warmth of their own.
