A friend brought this over to me from Romania. Apparently it is a very popular tea in Europe.
He says at some point they pick the flowers from the trees, lay them on newspaper to dry. After they’re dry they are stored in bags and used year-round to make ‘tea’ out of it.

Dry contents are mostly flower of a orange-red color, occasional leaves. The flowery smell is pleasant.

Infusion: 2 tsp ~ 1.5cup water boiling. >5min.

Taste: 4.3/7 Flavor: honey-ish, flowery, sweet?, very pleasant, smells good.
No astringency or anything related.
No astringency or bitterness after >10minute infusion.

Works very good with sugar, even better it is with honey. yum.

very good. have again? yes. hope i get some more of this.
