Had a bag of this brewed up in my little two-cup teapot.
Upon removing the bag from the packaging, the firs thing I noticed was that it smelled like raisins…
The smell upon pouring the first cup, after about three minutes of steeping, was quite floral.
Perhaps it was something I had eaten earlier, but the flavours simply did not agree with my taste buds. I like floral teas, but this is one that makes it taste as though you’re drinking liquid flowers. Not very pleasant. Might have been better with some sugar or honey (though either of those may have overwhelmed the tea itself).

Edit: I later ended up dumping the rest of the small pot after only drinking about a third of it. Some people may like this tea, but I’m afraid I’m not among them.

Bio

“I love trading tea and trying new teas. My favourites are oolong (mainly Chinese) and pu’erh.
Will gladly talk all day about tea.”

The above was my bio when I joined five years ago, and I felt it needed to be updated. I still love pu’erh, though I have begun to take preference toward cooked, shou. Oolongs are certainly still a go-to tea for me, but I have expanded my horizons to begin including greens and blacks based upon the weather and how I am feeling.

Still more than glad to talk about tea – anytime, anywhere, anyplace.
Additionally, if fountain pens, books, music, or computers are on the discussion list…

My ratings, this “personal enjoyment scale” about which I talk, are just that – based on how much I enjoyed the tea. I might have enjoyed it immensely, yet do not keep it stocked for various reasons. On the flip side, I have a few teas that are “good” but not “great,” which I keep stocked for various reasons.
