This tea is a bit lighter tasting than traditional US/British teas. When I lived in Canada I used to visit a Chinese tea shop for blooming tea and this is reminiscent of the experience I had while living there. I brewed the water first, dropped in the tea, and watched it blossom. Not only was it beautiful it was very nice after being steeped for a while. It holds a light, soft floral flavor & the smell is sweet & calming to the nerves. This is quite possibly one of my favorite blooming teas.
4 Tasting Notes
Probably one of the nicest teas I have ever had. I was mailed a sample directly from the Yogi company and at first I was a bit wary. I was thinking it was going to taste like licorice candy or licorice ropes. The very strong, bitter, black-tasting licorice that stains your teeth and ruins jellybeans at Easter. This is not the case.
It’s a very spicy, fruity-sweet tea that has an amazing after taste. I made this and steeped it in a pot for 4 minutes with no sugar & no honey (my preference is honey). After the first cup I was thinking it was a fluke. “The aftertaste can’t be so naturally sweet.” I was thinking. I poured a second cup. Same thing. This is an amazing stand-alone tea that does not need any other sweetener. It can hold it’s own and I would highly recommend it to anyone for those late night comfort-drinks.
I received this tea as a birthday present and I am enjoying it quite a bit. After it steeps it has a very pleasant aroma; floral and fruity, very soft but extraordinarily tantalizing. It tastes of cranberries oranges, and some sort of flower. I can’t exactly put my finger on it but it’s pleasant.
I’ve tried this tea both cold brewed & not, and I have to say I prefer it hot with just a bit of honey. When I’m sick this is usually my go-to tea for feeling better.
