I’ve enjoyed this twice now. The first time, I steeped it for a full five minutes with a low temperature (about 170°F) and it had a pleasant flavor, but it was lacking, somehow … and the bulb did not fully open. I steeped it again and the bulb did not open, and the flavor was still needing something.

The second time, I increased the temperature to 185°F and steeped it for 2 1/2 minutes the first time. The bulb did not fully open but the flavor was much nicer. The second infusion was even better (although the bulb still wasn’t fully open), and with the third infusion, it was still tasty although the second infusion tasted better… but the bulb was fully open and GORGEOUS.

The flavor is light and floral, with a sweet grass and hay background. a VERY nice blooming tea.

I am obsessed with tea!

I’m currently trying to take over 52Teas – please help make my dream a reality: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/497705217/the-great-52teas-take-over

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.


I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes. I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. If you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.


Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
