The first time I had this, in-store, I loved it. It was blended with a bit of silver needles and rock sugar. But I can’t seem to get that flavor back. It’s always a little too astringent, or a little too weak, or a little too sweet. It’s not bad. It’s delicate, and the orchids and apples are great together, but it tastes a little bit too floral for my taste. I’ll up the rating if I can figure out how to brew it properly.
