60 tasting notes

I found tea shop when I was recently on vacation in beautiful Valencia. It is a great store, if you want to see pictures you can check out their site http://www.pekoe.com.es/soinsdethe/index2.php

I asked the shopkeeper which one was his favorite and this tea was one of them. The apricot is very fragrant in this tea with some floral notes from the cornflowers and sunflowers both dried and once brewed. My kitchen smells great just walking in and there is only a cup left in the pot and the leaves sitting in the basket.

I brewed it with boiling water and steeped for 2 min and 45 sec. It is a dark caramel color once brewed and tastes mostly of apricot but does have a nice tea base. It is very smooth and I liked it hot and at room temp. I haven’t actually tried it iced, yet.

Preparation
Boiling 2 min, 45 sec
