I like floral teas, but this was a little too floral for me. Great creamy mouthfeel, though.

The dry leaves look brown and have a lightly roasted scent with notes of sweetness and flowers. This is a bit deceptive because after rinsing, the leaves are a very deep green and don't appear so roasted anymore.

The tea has roasted notes, sweet and floral notes which are reminiscent of gardenia but are sweeter and lighter, with passing notes of honey and milk. The presence in the mouth starts out more subtle, but then gets very strong. A note of something like lilacs came out in the second cup, with a little astringency.

I brewed it at 95C, I used about 1 Tbsp of leaves in a 4 oz gaiwan and brewed for the following times: rinse (a few seconds), 20 seconds, 25 seconds, 30 seconds, 45 seconds, 1 minute, 1 minute and 10 seconds, 1 minute and 30 seconds. The astringency didn't really come out until the fourth and fifth brewings.

This felt a bit expensive at first (as of July 2017, priced at 2x that of their Tung Ting oolong), but when I realized how strong it was and that I could use about half as much tea when brewing, it felt a bit more fair.

The flavor of this has such a full mouth feel that it was like there was a whole meadow of flowers in my mouth at several points while drinking this tea. It has a lot of notes, but they all go together really well, so it's not distracting.

Overall, I think it's a little too rich for daily drinking, but this seems like a great tea to serve to guests or to have as a treat every now and then.
