Another in my selection of flowering teas from TeaVivre!

I was a little more careful and prepared when brewing this tea – namely, I had a second pitcher prepared to pour the infused tea into so it wouldn’t over-steep. Additionally, the Family Happiness tea bloomed fully open more quickly than the previous tea (Rising Steady, I believe), so I was able to regulate the brewing time more carefully.

This tea is much more up my alley! It has a lovely, light flavor and delicate notes of the jasmine and lily. Inhaling the aroma, it gives a light hay scent like I’m standing in the middle of a freshly cut field as the hay dries before being bundled. It all feels and tastes very natural and even relaxing in its simplicity.

Yet the flavors are varied and rich, filling the mouth pleasantly like something creamy.

I particularly love the look of the lily blossoming at the base of the pitcher, ringed in a halo of jasmine. This truly is a lovely way to start my Friday!

I’m your standard nerdy girl in a lot of regards, from my taste in music, books, and movies to my penchant for getting completely wound up in various activities and hobbies. One of my hobbies that never seems to fade away is my joy in writing.

I’ve written a personal blog, a tea blog, and an adventure blog, all of which recently have been brought together to a single location – A Chomp at Life. The Fun and FlirTea section is dedicated to introducing tea to and enticing today’s younger, coffee-drinking generation. It’s a fun place to learn about tea and hopefully start meeting more tea-lovers as well!

More than almost anything else, I enjoy sharing the things I love and helping spread that joy. Now I’m doing this with tea, living life everyday, and adventures – and I couldn’t be more excited!
