I plucked this sample out of my basket o’ teas on a whim — I just wanted something warm after a cold wet night or running errands. 2 scant tsp in 8oz of just less than boiling water for 3 min. I am impressed that it did not taste overbrewed! (At first I thought this maybe was an herbal, so I didn’t pay close attention to time and temp.)
The jasmine, vanilla, and citrus notes were strongest when it was hot. As it cooled down towards lukewarm, I noticed the black pepper and rose (?). Noticing 5 out of 8 flavors without even trying is very good for my lazy undisciplined tastebuds!
I cold brew resteeped it, and will report on that later in the comments.
