I found if the water is warm the tea tastes okay. Boiling hot water made it taste bitter. With cold water, had a bitter taste as well. Has a light taste. Has an after taste of cherries, but like cherry filling.
This beautiful white tea has a delicate flavour. It has cherries and pink rosebud blossoms (hence the name). If you have never tried a white tea before I would definitely recommend just follow the instructions for steeping. Water cannot be boiling hot or it will burn the tea and leave a bitter taste. Though the white teas are more expensive than most I will repurchase this tea again and again.
