The first infusion had a strong scent but the taste was delicate. Usually I use mineral water for my tea, but because the taste is so subtle for this tea, that I decided to use tap water. Subtle tap water will not overrule the subtle taste.
The second infusion was much much better than the first one. The aroma was toned down slightly while the flavor was stronger, this made the whole taste experience more balanced. It had a hint of sweet fruits I can’t quite pinpoint. (Posted on 9/30/2013)
