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.

1/2 cacao ball for 375 ml of water

I didn’t prepare it the recommended way because I wanted to see how it would taste on its own. Infused for 10 minutes. Resulting brew has a very thin mouth-feel. Dark chocolate taste slight bitter taste at the back of the throat.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

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!
