This tea was slow to unfurl but the flowers hidden inside were really beautiful. It was very light and floral with Jasmine being the dominant taste, typical of a flowering tea. The liquor was a really bright gold that caught the light in an amazing way when I poured it into my double walled glass tasting cups. I suggest using a taller glass for this tea. My glass teapot is a little squat and there wasn’t quite enough room for the floating strings of flowers. As far as flowering teas go, this selection was pretty high quality. I would definitely recommend it.
