I received this in my Steepster Select in March. First, this tea is not like other teas. There are actual large, yellow-white, downy BUDS in this tea. Out of the package, it smelled very fresh and moderately floral. Can I say love at first whiff?

Brewing in my glass vessel, the liquid was a very, very pale yellow-white. Initially I thought that I hadn’t brewed it long enough; however, I decided to just follow the instructions and try a cup! Wow! It was flavorful despite the tea looking so much like water. The hints of peach and floral and green tones in this is delicious. I cannot wait to try the second packet. I have a feeling this will make its way into my wishlist.

I’m someone who happens have an addiction to tea! My tea collection keeps growing and growing, which just means that I’ve got to drink more tea! When life gets a bit too stressful, I love sitting down to a nice, warm cup of tea.

Swap: I am always up for swapping! Take a look at my cupboard and send me a msg! I always send extras since I have too much tea! :)

My cupboard contains all the teas that I own. The teas that are unrated but are in my cupboard are ones that I haven’t opened yet. :)
