I finally got brave enough to try this tea sample I had.I pulled out one of my best china cups added warm water and let it sit to get the salt off of it. Then brewed in hot water. Ulg. Plum vinegar and salt water is all I tasted. Yes, the blossoms are beautiful and I could smell them a bit. But for taste? I couldn’t pick up much flower taste. I couldn’t get past a few sips and had to throw out. It was that bad. This one is definitely an acquired taste and not for me. Glad I got to try it though.
