Delicate black tea with citrus and spices. There was a white flower petal, a whole clove, a largish piece of what looks to be orange (it had a thick rind) and a hard, not flakey piece of what tastes like cinnamon. I steeped the tea loose in the pot for 3 minutes with water just off boiling for the first pot, 5 minutes for second brewing. The spices were more pronounced in taste and aroma in the second steep.

This is a nice black tea with mellow chaiesque spices. Whole cloves, and pieces of orange, maybe nutmeg too. It’s pretty good even though spice based teas aren’t really my thing.
