This tea has a great peachy smell, but I just can’t get the same flavor out of it.

I steeped it about 4 minutes. The bloom was completely unfurled and the middle part is kind of unsettling to I look at…

The flavor itself is more of a jasmine/floral taste. I added some extra White Peach from Adagio I had into the pot, and that helped kick up the peach flavor. Second and third steepings have more or less the same light floral taste and still smell good.

This isn’t a bad tea, but I just expect more for something so expensive! I’ve had other blooming teas that were full of flavor and prettier. Definitely would never buy this at full price.

I’ve just recently discovered the world of loose tea and am really enjoying myself. I’m still in SAMPLE EVERYTHING mode, and likely always will be.

I love green teas, chai, and citrus flavors. I don’t mind hibiscus. I will drink a bitter green tea, but won’t drink bitter black tea. I’m working on figuring out which black teas work for me.

I tend to drink my tea without milk or sugar.

I’m using Steepster’s Cupboard function to actually reflect my current tea stock, otherwise I’d never be able to remember what I already have.
