I let the flowering tea ball infuse for as long as it took for it to bloom. I’m not too sure about the amount of water that was used but it may have been too much as the final tea tasted dilute. Jasmine flavour at the forefront. Sweetness present but overall dilute in taste.
The flowering tea bloom itself was not overly impressive. It looked like two small orange/red coloured buds/flowers held within a green tea leaf nest.
0.65 tbsp from 1 pre-prepared teabag for 188 ml of water
Good flavour combination. Thin mouth-feel. Peppermint flavour at the forefront with trailing mild cocoa flavour. Hint of lavender. I think the vanilla gives it a bit of a sweetness but the actual flavour is difficult to detect.
0.5 tbsp for 200ml
Extremely mineral tasting- I felt like I was drinking a carbonated beverage. The strawberry is mild in flavour, more apparent in the aroma. The ginger is very faint. There is a baked-goods note; like a pastry on the roof of my mouth in the aftertaste. As the tea cools the strawberry flavour becomes a bit more punchy.
Thanks to Sil for letting me try some!
1 tbsp for 375 ml
Smokey hints. Light lemon flavour. Green tea flavour is oceanic-mineral. The cardamom flavour is not overly apparent. There may have been some flavour lost due to age.
I will not give this an official rating because I don’t really like lemon-green tea and because I’ve had this one around for so long. I received this in my 52teas 12 days of tea box last year.
