Fair truth: tasting this kind of terrified me. If you’ve followed my notes regularly, you will know that I simply cannot abide anything floral in my tea. So, a fully flowering tea? This can’t be good, can it?

We don’t have, no shock I suspect, the proper pot for brewing this, but I took the center column out of a clear, round Bodum and we used that. Unfortunately, no matter how slowly I poured, the pod did get battered around a fair bit, and some of the outer leaves came loose. And, it floated for a good while, which complicated things a bit.

But it did fully expand in due time, and was very pretty.

And oddly enough, the tea itself is not particularly floral ! Just a lightly roasted white tea, very subtle. Maybe a whiff of sweetness near the finish. If this was just a loose white tea, I wouldn’t be all that impressed, I don’t think. But then, who’s going to use their finest leaves to make these things?

I love your review! It’s very honest, and I could picture you steeping this tea the entire time I read it. Awesome.
