I used two teaspoons of leaf and blossom to 8 ounces of boiled water allowed to cool to 185 as per recommendation on the website. I allowed a 3 minute steep though, rather than the suggested two minute.
Immediately, I can tell that the flavor of this tea is not engaging me. The pu'erh is very weak in flavor, and I like a strong, earthy pu'erh. While I expect that a mixed blend like this will offer up flavors aside from the base tea, this is too weak for my tastes. The floral bouquet is similar, too similar, to a sachet of flower potpourri and tastes again too light. It's a bit perfumed but rose is the only flower flavor to come forth. There's also a somewhat orange-y flavor. Overall, the flower and tea both fail to really deliver much on the flavor front and this results in an off putting cup that seems stale.
