I just realized what the color reminds me of; apple cider. I stepped up the temp. and time on this steep. (190F/4 min)
The smell of the liquor is just as floral as the last one. I am amazed! If I’m thinking correctly this isn’t flavored at all/perfumed. Which is what is so awesome to me. This smells and tastes like no other tea I’ve had and all that is included is tea leaves!
This steep is much sweeter than the first one. The floral taste is much more subdued, but still present. It is still very smooth and has no bite. This cup has almost no vegetal flavor in it; which was surprising. I am getting a lot of creamy notes. I love that this one just, in it’s own way, melts in your mouth.
Really solid 2nd steep. More to come!
