Aroma: smelled pretty and flowery. Very gently flowery, not knock-you-in-the-face flowery. Ladylike. Dusting powder rather than perfume.

Because of my experience with Lord John Grey yesterday, I took care not to over-steep. But alas, the bitterness was there again. It has to be something in the base tea they were using at the time. Or the cornflower petals, which are present in both. (It wasn’t as bitter as the Lord John Grey.)

After awhile of trying it straight, I reheated and added some half-and-half. That helped with the slight bitterness, but It’s still a little puckery for my taste.

Maybe I could just leave it out for potpourri or steam it for a room freshener. I really liked the way it smelled.

That isn’t Angus; nor is it Merle, Finn, or Dulcie. It’s a very focused Scottish wildcat.
