I am a fan of Numi tea, and this is another one to add to my favourites list. I got this in a university dining hall, so it was steeped in a small paper cup and thus turned out quite strong. While my first impression was that it didn’t taste at all like roses (which was a shame since I love floral teas), a second steeping yielded a lighter liquid and better flavour. The smell emanating from the cup smells just like fresh-cut roses, and it comes out in the tea as well. It’s like drinking a bouquet! Mmmm. This white tea doesn’t beat my Kusmi Rose, but if I do run out of that I will grab some of this!
