this is an awesome tea!

when i smell the leaves dry, they smell floral.

when i smell the leaves wet, that smell is intensified.

when i smell the brewed tea, i smell some floral and frutyness.

when i taste the brewed tea, it tastes a little like iron and some frutiness and just the right amount of floral.

this is too good for others not to try: does anyone want to swap a tea for some of this?

a decent tea

when I smell the ball dry, it smells like white tea leaves.

when I smell the bloomed flower, it smells floral and like green tea leaves.

when I smell the brewed tea, it smells like green tea.

when I taste the brewed tea, it tastes like green tea.

I rate this a 75 because it does not taste like much.

also, I thought the ball would never sink. but it did, I feel sorry for the flower when I use all the tea in the little glass pitcher. it looks like it died..

many thanks to angel teavivre for hosting a contest I won in.

so i used the rest of this tea, and its not as good as i thought it was. i had to use the last 4 disks just to get a strong flavor and even then it was not good enough. i don’t recommend this tea.

scribbles i will add some of the following tea. it is awesome!

a lovely tea.

little glass pitcher method (grandpa style):

when I smell the leaves dry, they smell like flowers and ground pepper.

when I smell the leaves wet, its the same but with a spicy smell.

when I smell the brewed tea, it smells like flowers and ground pepper.

when I taste the brewed tea, it tastes like flowers, ground pepper and some chalkiness.

I rate this tea a 90 because I don’t like the chalk taste
