After steeping for 5 minutes (water at 180°F), the bulb did not completely open and the flavor is very light. I can taste the sweetness of jasmine as well as the sweetness of the green tea. Overall a pleasant tea experience, not my favorite flowering tea but it’s certainly not horrible either.

I love flowering teas. :)) A few years ago, afriend bought me some-I’m not sure where. They were peach flavored. I thought the peach would overpower the light tea, but it was perfect, and not overdone at all! That is agood thing.

I’ve had a peach flavored flowering tea from Teavana. It was really good, in fact, if I ever do shop with Teavana again, I’d probably get more of their flowering teas (they also have a strawberry flavored one, I believe).

I know these are green tea but they really do seem to need lightly boiling water. It doesn’t get bitter – at least not by my taste buds.

I also had the peach one from Teavana. It was one of the samples they had out several times when I was there, and I thought it was very good, the salesgirl apologized before I drank it, saying it had very light flavor and she recommended the tea up front, but I sipped it and thought it had lots of flavor.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

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 here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so 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.
