Most of the floral appears to be in the aftertaste and isn’t overwhelming. Initial flavor is almost fruity but not quite. Overall enjoyable tea!

I don’t personally enjoy darjeelings. This reminded me of a very high quality bud-only green tea I once had in china, with a slight vegetal astringency but generally not overwhelmingly so. This isn’t the kind of body I’m used to, but it’s not something that takes away from the tea either. As a person who normally turns my nose up at darjeeling, this is an excellent tea. I got this as a sample from some other tea I ordered from TeaSource.

Flavors: Flowers, Grass

It tastes a lot more like green tea with hints of lemongrass and only a trace of spearmint. As the tea cools down it started tasting bitter and very green to me. Eh.

After I sip this tea, the sweet stevia kind of coats the back of my mouth and throat. It smells herby but the flavor is a pretty herby-medicinal, only slightly softened by the sweet stevia flavor. I’m not sure if this is just me but my tummy was a little unhappy after sipping it.

The stevia can really be tasted here, with chamomile and licorice tasting after. After that, it tastes slightly sweetly medicinal, reminding me of my mother’s traditional chinese medicine.

It is rare that one finds a rose tea in which the rose isn’t overpowering, but distinctively there. Props to having an excellent rose flavor without even touching perfumeyness. The tea leaf (dry) smells like chocolate and roses! Lovely.
