Once again, thank you Angel and TEAVIVRE for their generosity for this sample!!
I only used 1 tsp.
Dry smell: fresh cut hay
Taste: grainy (but not in a bad way), slightly sweet like caramel but not as sweet as I thought it would be from all the reviews on here. I might try a 3 minute steep next time and see how that goes
2nd steep: 90degrees, 3minutes, less grainy, a tad sweeter
3rd steep: 95degrees, 4minutes, I found this to be the sweetest steep, and not as grainy, so this is now very smooth, this was my favourite steep.
I would have went for more steeps, but I was out and about for too long and had to throw out my leaves.
I am so excited I finally got to try it!

I am a nurse. I have numerous hobbies: reading, crocheting, crafting, card making, scrapbooking, photography, shopping, and of course drinking TEA!

I started drinking loose leaf tea in Dec. 2010 when I went into a DavidsTea for the first time and have been hooked ever since! My favourite is probably white tea, but I also love black and oolong. I also like a nice relaxing rooibos or herbal in the evening. On Sundays, I like to treat myself and make a tea latte.

My favourite flavours are nutty, vanilla, chocolate, jasmine, tropical, fruity, earl grey.
My dislikes are lavender, rose, hibiscus, banana, and straight green or overly vegetal teas.

I am admittedly fairly generous in my rating scale. Most of my teas I rate at 90 and above, and would re-stock these teas.
Anything under 90 I probably wouldn’t re-stock unless I found a great price.
