Sandy and I are making our way through some more delightful teas today.
This is the first high quality flowering tea I have had. I bought some at Southern Season and some at a tea room over a year ago and it was faded both in taste and color. I threw the reminding ones away. They were that bad. I had hoped to serve them at special events, but the tea was so flavorless and the show so lackluster that I discarded the idea.
This is another story! I love the color and shape! The two white dragons holding up the marigold unfolded sweetly and continued to expand and bloom. As delighted as I was with the show, the taste of the tea is equally delightful. It is sweet, not bitter at all, and there is a warm, nuttiness to the base that i have found in some oolongs. I am very pleased with this and would definitely be inclined to serve it at special occasions.
Thank you, Angel and Teavivire!
