Very floral aromas and slightly nutty and fruity flavors. The 3rd steep at 30 seconds a steep was the most flavorful by far. Once the leaves open up, you can really taste the peachiness described by Adagio. Super smooth and easy to drink for about 8 steeps.

How much tea/water do you use?

When making this I’m usually at work. So I use a coffee mug and this strainer: http://www.forlifedesign.com/infusers-strainers/433.html#.
I rinse the tea and and then let it sit for about 30 seconds to open up a little more from the initial hot water rinse. Then I fill up the cup and take out the strainer after about 10 seconds for first steep, then 20 for 2nd then 20-30 for 3rd and so on, but after 3rd it becomes easier to regulate and harder to oversteep. I use about a tablespoon of tea, but I just eyeball it to just fill the bottom of the strainer. Hope that helps and makes this tea more enjoyable because it is terrible when over steeped.
