The aroma is sweet, like a rich blend of muscatel and honey, in fact it reminds me a bit of honey wine (specifically the Grecian Honeyed Wine I used to make when I could imbibe in my younger days) with a nice finish of hay.

The taste, oh man, it is so sweet! I feel like I am drinking tea that tastes like mown hay, freshly broken stems, and a touch of grapes, but with a massive splash of honey wine mixed it. It is mild and heady, like wine without the burning and tipsy quality, but it still has the warmth and sweetness.

I was able to get many steeps out of this tea.

I am really looking forward to trying this one...it's in the latest batch of Samples TeaVivre sent me, and I haven't yet brewed it...I often save the ones I expect to like most, for last.

The new batch of samples has been so much fun, usually I save the one I am most excited for last as well, but I was really having a hankering for white tea :)
