I LOVE this tea. I ordered only an oz this year so far, and for some reason, I received it and didn’t tear into it like there’s no tomorrow. I think it is engrained in me to hoard this tea, as the sample I got last year, I hoarded for soo long, and finally finished it and missed it ALL WINTER. I was worried it wouldn’t come back! But it did thank goodness, and now I have an oz to indulge in, and probably more along the way this summer.
The smell is still HEAVENLY. Nectar of the gods. Lovely brown sugary Yabao with a myriad of flowers. Steeped for 2 minutes with 185 degree water. The smell is very light once steeped, and of flowers.
The flavor is sooo delicious. Brown sugar with flowers floating in a wave of lovelyness. Sweet hint of vanilla. This tea is such a nice treat, and perfect for summer. I might just have to up the rating, it’s very nearly a perfect score for me. I’ll hold off on 100 for now, but it is very close.
