This is only the second flower tea that I’ve tried. The other one also was a great Teavivre sample.

This Two Dragons and a Pearl Flower tea has a mildly sweet and grass-like flavor. The color is light yellow. This tea tastes very similar to one of Teavivre’s green blends.

I don’t go out of my way to sample flower teas. I find the flower brewing method a little bit of an intrusion. Maybe I’ve been spoiled by my one touch tea maker which does just about everything for me except drink the tea.

This tea does have a nice mild flavor without bitterness. And, I did enjoy watching the little rolled up tea bundle open and “bloom” into a flower nestled in leaves during the brewing process. In fact, I think I like WATCHING flower teas more than DRINKING them!

I loved this one so much that now I want a little dedicated pot for it! There is a Taiwan glass pot on purepuer.com and a small glass pot from Harney and Sons that are both in the running to come live with me. This was my favorite of the flowering teas. I didn’t realize before that you are supposed to put so little water, but it makes sense.

I’m glad you enjoyed it! I thought it had a nice taste but I found the flavor similar to green tea.

I liked this one better because, to me, it had more complex flavors and it leaned toward the sweet side.

I hope you do adopt a glass pot. I used a large clear Tervis mug which was ok, but I’m sure the glass pot will be much nicer.

Thanks for your comment!

I have! These are a far cry from the first flower teas I ever bought, but then I probably didn’t know how to brew those properly back then. These were very good!

Both of the Teavivre flower teas were tasty. I haven’t tried any others yet. Maybe they will start to grow on me (no pun intended) as I sample more.

Bio

I ventured into the world of serious tea drinking in the Summer of 2011. I started out slowly and gently with bagged tea but climbed to the incredible flavorful heights of loose leaf teas in October of that year. Once you go leaf, you never go bag (except when you get free samples)!
