This tea is a champ! I am currently sipping on infusion 5 and the flavor is still strong and delicious! The dry leaves smell very creamy. After the first steep, the leaves still had the creamy quality, but there was also a yummy floral, and buttery smell too.
The flavor was buttery, creamy and floral. the floral quality reminds me a bit of orchids. There is also a slightly sweet finish to the tea. The following 4 infusions all had variations of flavors, sometimes the buttery quality was more prominent, sometimes the floral and sweet quality. Regardless of the steep, this tea was very inviting and delicious. Throughout all the steeps, the tea continued to have a very creamy and smooth texture, which was very interesting!
