May benefit from a longer infusion time. I can taste the anise. Overall, flavour is dilute and slightly thin-tasting. Mouthfeel on the aftertaste is slightly reminiscent of grainy texture. Nice cinnamon flavour, balanced well with other flavours. Slight peppery spice but not spicy. Something in this brew reminds me of strong pu-erh flavour.
Flavors: Anise, Cinnamon
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.
