I got this tea through a swap with Mel

I think there was some scent cross-contamination?

Resteep: 2-3 min, pretty much same as the first, this has staying power!

Got this from Mel, and this is really nice. Light, with a juicy aftertaste while not being sweet or losing the mild astringency. I can see that this will be a lovely hot weather tea.

On the bag, it said to use a scale to measure for the tea. But I looked on the website, and it said to use 2 heaping teaspoons per 8oz of water, so I did that. The tea itself is just beautiful with its layers of colors.

It’s an extremely light tea! The instructions of just 2 teaspoons doesn’t seem at all enough. I love elderflower in St. Germain liquor, not sure if I like it in tea. It’s so light though, it’s just background. Next time I brew it, I will add probably double the amount I used this time.

This is one of my favorites. Sweet, light, floral. Makes a killer iced tea, too!

I love it – especially in summer. Great as iced tea – but use filtered water as it will become cloudy otherwise. It still tastes great,though.
