This made a pretty bloom, but unfortunately, this is not the connoisseur’s tea. The teas in the primula line have been subpar so far, but are beautiful when they bloom. This would make for a nice afternoon tea to sip, but it has a bit of a strange taste and does not bode well cup after cup. Others (and so does the package) have claimed that the tea does well in subsequent steeps, but unfortunately it doesn’t become any better, but it doesn’t get any worse in taste after the first steep, maybe more diluted is all.
