I know it says there are supposed to be flowers in here… but I’m getting cherries?? Dry, it smells floral, but when steeping, I smelled something akin to amaretto.
It’s naturally sweet on it’s own to, which I love. I had half a cup bare, and half with milk and sugar. Both are fantastic!
Bare, it is ever so slightly bitter, but more floral/cherry than bitter. It’s not very astringent, just a hint maybe.
It has a depth to it that reminds me of my childhood somehow. I can’t quite put my finger on why… something about the way it smells when really hot- not so much as it cools.
With milk and a dash of sugar, the sweetness really comes out. There is a mild toasted flavour as well. Similar to the budla, only floral and milder but with more depth.
This is intensely satisfying. Thanks again to QuiltGuppy, or as some might say… TeaGoddess :)
