This is a really old sipdown with a sample I got from JK7Ray over on reddit.
I rinsed this 15 seconds in cold water just because its been at the bottom of my bag for a while and I didn’t know what scents it might have absorbed.
Brewed ~2-3 minutes in 600 mL of hottish water (half boiling water, half cold tap water). Once again I end up with a deep orange/amber brew that smells medicinal and fruity.
This is one of those teas where you describe what you taste and wonder why anyone would drink that (puerh drinkers get it). It does have a medicinal chrysanthemum flavour (might be osmanthus) and the white tea is light and slightly vegetal. I get an overwhelming flavour of dill and dry grass. It certainly seemed medicinal, like what you expect dry osmanthus and dill to taste like. There is only one flower and no dill, but that sums up the major flavours.
This is quite a unique tea and I do recommend people try it, but it isn’t something I’d buy/trade for again.
Flavors: Dandelion, Dill, Dry Grass, Herbs, Medicinal, Osmanthus, Vegetal
