1 tablespoon for 375 ml of water.

Melon-y flavour in the background. The melon note has a slight quick bitterness to the taste that makes it seem more like watermelon or honeydew than another melon such as cantaloupe (which has a long, sustained sweetness in my opinion). White tea taste is present closer to the end of the sip. Slight metallic feeling from the white tea taste. Fruity sweetness from the end of the sip into the aftertaste- like the sugar-y taste after biting into a fresh watermelon slice. This note is toned down by the marshy note of the white tea.

More sweetness and fruity taste come out as the tea cools. Overall this tea has a very delicate flavour.

Second infusion at 6 minutes. Very little flavour.

Preparation
185 °F / 85 °C 4 min, 30 sec
Butiki Teas

Maybe try a 4 minute infusion for the second steeping? The longer the tea leaves steep, the more the tea and flowers will start to overtake the flavoring.

Interesting! Thanks for the advice. I had a feeling that I should have kept it shorter. I have enough of the sample you sent me left for one more try. Thanks again for sending all the samples along with my order!

Butiki Teas

Raritea-I don’t know if it will make that much of a difference since this is already a very delicate tea but it might help.

Sil-Hahaha, you’re awesome! :)
