The dry tea smells great. It has a sweet, lemony smell, but it’s not lemon-cleaner-like, if you know what I mean.
My first thought when I tasted it was that it was a variation of Exotica. I love Exotica, so that’s not a bad thing. I did detect a bit of a bitter end note while drinking it, though. I followed DT’s instructions and steeped it for 4 min at 92C. I think next time I’ll try it at a slightly lower temp, and maybe for only 3 min, and see if that takes away the bitterness.
I liked it, but unless changing the steeping method improves it, I’ll stick to Exotica.
