Okay. My 2nd attempt. I should have known…the flower didn’t totally bloom yet so I steeped longer and hotter. The color really came out this time – a very dark coloring of brown/red/orange. Still next to no scent. It’s smells a little brothy – like a veggie broth almost. The taste is very earthy/floral. Not sure if I like it but it’s a sure step up from my first attempt so I will up the rating number.
