Thank you Doulton for this tea, first of all. It is truly an experience! :)
I have saved this tea for a special occasion, but nothing special came up except a day of doing nothing. I used 10oz of water per ball. I used Morgana’s perimeters for each steep, but I added a minute to each steep. I’m drinking my 2nd steep as I type this.
The first steep was a light amber brew. I used a butter knife to pry it more open, by the second brew, it was a beautiful loose mess of leaves. It smells sweet and floral. I get a small pastry like taste like a cookie. The 2nd brew got darker, and not as sweet.
This is a fun tea! It just wants to be shared while it’s brewed. The taste is good, but the experience heightens the tea.
