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!
