Rose and marshmallows! What a strange tea, but I like it so far. Since I can’t try this in a gaiwan right now, I put 3 tsps in my Perfect Mug steeper and steeped for 2 mins initially. This is REALLLY floral in scent, even for my tastes, but the florality (is that a word?) backs off a bit in taste. I am curious as to how the next couple steeps are going to be. However, I won’t rate this tea until I’ve tried it in a gaiwan and with a cold steep. Those seem to be the most popular and best methods for bringing out the nuances of this tea.
