I love the way blooming teas look and taste, however I do find them difficult to drink because I hate the way the leaves and flowers tickle my lips. Or maybe I’m supposed to remove the bloom first? Am I doing it wrong?
6 Tasting Notes
I blend this with lavender for a late evening tea. Best with honey and milk.
This is my go-to cold weather tea. Actually, just about any Earl Grey is regardless of brand (just don’t insult me with a tea bag, please). I drink mine by the pot with honey and almond milk.
Certainly not a favorite. I love raspberry, but this is just a little too strong for me. I might try blending it with another black tea to tone it down. Also, it might be good iced, but I didn’t like it enough to try. Perhaps I’ll give it a go, otherwise it will languish in the cupboard.
Delicious with honey in the colder months and wonderful iced in the summer. One of the only black teas I can drink without milk or cream. Don’t steep it too long or it will become bitter.
Delicious. I love the subtle floral notes and the pleasant aftertaste. The second resteep is still good, and even the third is better than your garden variety oolong (though noticeably more tannic than the first and second steepings). Not quite worth the price tag, in reality, but it had been so long since I’d indulged in a high quality tea that I caved (and the salesman gave me 10% off). No regrets. I’ve greatly enjoyed this tea every morning since.
