I open up the wrapping and am unsurprisingly greeted with the scent of orange.
I brewed this gongfu style. 10 seconds + 10-30 more each steep.
1st Steep: Shockingly the scent of the tea is not that of oranges but of a very floral pureh. The sip brings a nice citrus fragrance to the mouth and lingers in the after taste. Other small tastes appear that remind me of jasmine and roses.
2nd-8th Steep: This steep came out a much, much darker red. Very floral still, however the citrus taste gets stronger somewhat over time. The other flavors like jasmine seemed to disappear quickly even though I extended my steep times properly.
I will give this another chance down the line. Maybe I brewed it wrong somehow? The first steep was fantastic, however the flavor disappeared quickly. Never had this issue before. Disappointing.
Flavors: Floral, Jasmine, Orange, Rose
