Decided to drink this sample because I saw some other people reviewing this tea recently. The leaves for this tea looked very nice. The dry leaves had a sweet aroma, and after a rinse they smelled like sweet spices to me, perhaps cloves/nutmeg. This tea seemed to take off pretty quickly, as the first steep was very thick and sweet, with a mostly floral character. After that, some intense vegetal notes mixed with the floral flavor for quite a few steeps. Slight bitterness which didn’t last particularly long. The body of this tea was pretty intense throughout. The tea also yielded many lighter floral steeps at the end. This was a pretty interesting one, and glad that I got to sample it.
Flavors: Cloves, Floral, Thick, Vegetal
