Oh my goodness, I have never enjoyed a floral tea more! Usually that scent means that I’ll end up tossing the cuppa but nope, this is deeeeelicious. Thank you SO much to Mark B for the very generous sample!
It’s more of a floral scent that then translates into taste, the kind you can’t really taste at all if you have a cold. Behind that there is a light vegetal note. Rapini! I’m getting rapini. Yummmm!
Then there is a very mild nutty aftertaste that I quite like, mixed in with the floral tone. I can still smell the floral long after I’ve swallowed.
Thanks again Mark B!!
Edit: On the third steep it finally started to taste more jasmine like so I stopped it there. I’ll bet it would go much longer in a gaiwan/gongfu!
