The dry leaves are a lovely dull brown colour. I just really like the look of them.

I'm having slightly mixed feelings. It is flowery as advertised, but it's also a bit "dull" in a way that cheap teabags often are. Maybe I used too much tea or let it steep for too long. Or maybe too many leaves and not steeped long enough? It is generally pleasant, though. Sweetish and reminds me of liquorice (the root, not the sweets).
