I used 1.5 tablespoons of dry leaf for 375 ml of water.
The dry leaf smells like strong cherry medicine. I did pick up on Black Currant notes similar to what I was getting in the Black Currant Bai Mu Dan by 52teas.
I’m not detecting any bergamot aroma from either the dry leaf or the brewed tea. The brewed tea has a sugary berry aroma.
There is a sourness present. The white tea swampy flavour is very prevalent and there is a roasted-vegetal bite to the immediate and lingering aftertaste. The berry taste is quite faint. The sugary berry taste is present in the aftertaste. I’m not picking up any definite notes of bergamot.
The black currant flavour becomes more prominent as the tea cools.
