On Valentine’s evening, I asked hubby to join me for Teavivre’s Two Dragons and A Pearl flowering tea since it was a special occasion and he had given me a glass pot. I was very surprised last night at about bedtime when he asked if we were going to drink tea again! He is a Tetley kind of guy and I knew this was a sacrifice of LoVe! :)
I chose this tea because it is one of the main reasons I wanted a glass pot. I love watching the pearls turn into ittle pinwheels as they open up.
This has such a wonderful, natural jasmine flavor. It sweetens the tea without dominating it completely. The steeped tea is yellow, and remained about the same color through five steeps. Each was also delicious. The green tea base is mild and smooth with no bitterness or bite.
I am hoping that the “tea together before bedtime” thing is going to become a ritual! :) Or at least a frequent occurrence.
