Steeped for 4 minutes in water starting at approximately 180 degrees but cooling quickly during the steep. Leaves were large when fully hydrated. Steeped twice.
The first steep was quite good. The flavors were very subtle. Slight undertones of fruit/floral. The flavor seems a bit better as this cup approaches room temperature. The appearance of the tea was a light tan after steep.
The second steep produced basically identical results to the first with some exception. The flavors were a bit more pronounced but so were the tannins giving it a slightly bitter note. The color was slightly darker in comparison to the first steep.
Overall enjoyed the tea but the price is a bit high.
Flavors: Floral, Fruity, Smooth
