Just got my sample packs from Tea From Taiwan. This is the first of the samples I brewed and was very pleased. The dried pellets smell so floral, like a combination of lilac, rose, and jasmine with a hint of vanilla bean and butter. Brewed it western style in a glass tea pot with a glass strainer. Just below boiling water brewed for 2 minutes after an initial rinse. Color is straw-yellow with a hint of green. Aroma is intoxicatingly floral and rich with a hint of butterscotch. Nice sweetness on the palate, thick and heavier than expected. Hints of baked goods, almost bready, buttery-smooth and back end caramel action. The floral aroma really dominates here from beginning to end. A beautiful product.
