I brewed this for more like 9 minutes because I was enjoying watching it expand too much. It’s quite pretty. The taste is very sweet and delicately jasmine. It is a very mild tea that didn’t seem to be hurt by the fairly excessive brew time. I can’t say for sure that I would use any blooming tea as a normal, daily-type tea but if I ever wanted to serve tea at a special occasion, I think this one would be a great one to use – attractive and tasty.

That looks gorgeous! By any chance, do you have Samovar’s glass oolong teapot (the really tiny one)? I’m interested in trying a blooming tea, but the only glass teapot I have is the tiny one (or at least I will have it once it is shipped to me!).

It really was quite nifty! The colors weren’t quite as vibrant as in the picture but still pretty. Right now I have a Teaposy 22oz glass teapot. The teaball was a little over 7g so I filled the pot a little more than half way. I’m not sure if a 4oz pot would be big enough – but I’m totally guessing. It can never hurt to try!

Yeek. I don’t want to waste a potentially beautiful bloom. I can always use my Jumbo cup from Adagio – it holds 12 oz. Thanks for the input!

I’m trying to be a better tea logger and actually post semi-regularly again! I’ve let my tea tasting senses become too complacent – it’s time for some focused and attentive tea drinking!

Sometimes my notices for PMs and such have been questionable. Email me at your own risk at aug3zimm at gmail dot com.


1 – 10 – Bleck. Didn’t finish the cup.
11 – 25 – Drinkable. But don’t punish me by making me have it again.
26 – 40 – Meh. Most likely will see if the husband likes it iced.
41 – 60 – Okayish. Maybe one day I’ll kill off what I have in my pantry.
61 – 75 – Decent. I might pick some up if I needed tea.
76 – 85 – Nice. I’d probably buy but wouldn’t hunt it down.
86 – 100 – Yum! I will hunt down the vendor to get this tea!

Not that anyone but me particularly cares, but there it is.
