I oversteeped this a bit. D’oh! Otherwise, I tried to follow the steeping instructions on the package: 2 tsp per cup, 2-4 minutes, 70°C.
This tea caught my eye because I, too, live in Toronto. I don’t think this tea quite represents the city (then again, it’s hard to find an ingredient that signifies “City Hall makes me facepalm so hard I have neither a face nor a palm left”, isn’t it?), but it’s still pleasant.
Now, onto the cup itself. The label said it’s a mix of white tea, green tea, cinnamon, orange, lemongrass, rose, and other flavourings. However, in both the scent and taste, the flavour of citrus is the strongest. I can smell some sweetness of almond or vanilla in the background, and can kind of smell the cinnamon underneath the citrus, but the orange and lemongrass together are so strong that they really force the other flavours to second-tier status.
It’s interesting, but once I finish off my sample, I’m not sure if I’ll restock it.
