Once out of the package these look like Chestnuts. Once infused and open these are the biggest bloomed/flowers I have seen. They are glorious. There is little to no scent and very light in taste. It’s refreshing/thirst quenching but not much flavor. Still a nice cup – I had one hot and one cold. I did 2 infusions but didn’t attempt a 3rd because the first two were so light! Pros and Cons but still a neat experience.
