Dilute wax-like flavour with caramel-sweet tones in the background and in aftertaste. Burnt flavour as the end of the sip- like liquid ash.

Mmmmmm, liquid ash LOL! I guess not every tea Lupicia makes is a winner.

I let the flowering tea ball infuse for as long as it took for it to bloom. I’m not too sure about the amount of water that was used but it may have been too much as the final tea tasted dilute. Jasmine flavour at the forefront. Sweetness present but overall dilute in taste.

The flowering tea bloom itself was not overly impressive. It looked like two small orange/red coloured buds/flowers held within a green tea leaf nest.

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C

Purchased this tea at the airport. I think that it was brewed at too high of a temperature and is astringent. Otherwise, it seems that it would be quite good.

Hate when that happens!

0.65 tbsp from 1 pre-prepared teabag for 188 ml of water

Good flavour combination. Thin mouth-feel. Peppermint flavour at the forefront with trailing mild cocoa flavour. Hint of lavender. I think the vanilla gives it a bit of a sweetness but the actual flavour is difficult to detect.

Boiling 6 min, 0 sec
