Fascinating from the first steep. Though I admit I didn’t love those first couple of woody steeps, they were certainly interesting, and the love came later. Somewhere around steep 5, I started getting…was that a danish? The recommended steeping parameters were dead on in that I really started to want to pour off the tea pretty much as quickly as I could. This is a lot like that guy I immediately disliked when he walked into the bar but I later fell for his charms and married him. Hyacinth, butter, citrus, other things I can’t begin to name…they’re all here for the party. UPDATE: I just made a big ol’ western-style pot of this, and I’m am hugely surprised to like it even better this way! All the flavors are there at once to overwhelm and charm me. It was this brewing that put this tea back on my wish list for a restock.
