This is generally a pleasant brew, a good alternative to hot water on a cold night. The sweetness doesn’t taste like rose to me, which I find a little disappointing because there’s no real flavour to the top note, and the white tea is much smokier than it at first appears.
Not being a fan of smoky teas, I wouldn’t drink this very often but I think because it is more delicate than smoky black teas it is far more palatable and makes a good change every now and again.
Washed at 85C, glass teapot
1st infusion (2 mins at 85C)
A light, smoky sweetness.
2nd infusion (3 mins at 95C)
Smokier with more complexity. Still a tiny bit sweet but rose flavour mysteriously absent.
Flavors: Smoke, Sweet
