Chrysanthemum! ::shakes fist in the air::
I actually didn’t read the sample packet on this one until I’d poured the leaves into the pot and noticed a single white flower. I was somewhat confused since I thought that something called “White Tea” would contain just white tea. Then I read the packet. I’m not a big chrysanthemum fan.
I won’t go into details because I’m having a horrible time figuring out how on earth to describe it. I just feel like a perfectly good white tea was spoiled by one singular flower. It just sort of added an unpleasant taste for me. I think that what it reminds me of is when I was a child I loved dandelions so much that I tried eating one. I’m not gonna try that again to compare, but I just remember that bitter plant taste and being so disappointed.
I must admit that I did do two steeps. I don’t hate it, but it’s something I’d never purchase. M
