Oriental Beauty ~ Goldfish

On account of the first two being very successfully, I brewed a third Flowering bulb from Goldfish.

Unfortunately, this one’s just kind of bizarre. I’m not sure what it’s supposed to look like (Hong Kong Bay? ^^;; ), but whatever it is, i don’t get it. It just kind of fails. Neither the teapot nor the liquor has any aroma. It tastes a bit like chrysanthemum, but not quite.  If this tea was actually “Oriental Beauty” it would’ve been made in Taiwan and taste slightly fermented as Oriental Beauty requires the leaves to be bitten by jassids (remember this cute guy?). So no, probably not that tea. Not sure what the concept here is really, but it’s certainly unique. I guess I’ve got a lot of research ahead of me.
