Well, I keep going back to see if I am going to change my mind about this tea. After 4 tasteings using Spring Water to brew…a 2 cup pot…using 1 TB and letting the tea steep for about 5 min. also with sugar instead of honey or agave and cream instead of milk. I love this tea!!! The roasting of the leaves is just enough to give a subtle smoke like the experience of chicory coffee at Cafe du Monde in New Orleans. The mocha note with orange is just and not cloying. This is not too girly. Solid robust flavor.
This is such a beautiful girly tea. Small rose buds…perfect and sweet but not perfumy. The taste is more of fruit and rosehip with a nose that brings on Springtime. This is definately tea party tea. Steep 5 min. at 212 degrees 2 tsp per 8oz water. Good 2nd pour. Lovely aroma and flavor. Milk works well.
