This white tea is crushed up. I’m not sure if its from handling or not. It smells like a strong white tea, and it is a pretty flavorful, strong tea. Meh…

I was a bit disappointed in this one, but I think its because I had such high expectations. The picture makes it look so beautiful. When mine bloomed, it looked like a sad lump of red-brown with brown-white flowers. The taste was okay. I felt like I needed to leave it longer, and when I did that, it turned out a bit astringent. The nutty flavor isn’t as pronounced in this tea. Neither is the jasmine. Overall its just okay. meh.

My husband and I shared this on Christmas Eve before heading off to a family party. This was very beautiful. The flowers were beautiful! I love the lily-like flower and the chrysanthemum-like flower in the center. The tea was tied very nicely as well on the bottom, almost like a bouquet. The liquor was a light brown color. It was lightly scented. Just like the other blooming flowers, which all have a similar taste, this one was also nutty. It was almost like an oolong or green tea. This tea was lighter in taste. There was Jasmine in there, which didn’t give me a reaction! I was happy about that. It was smooth in taste and there was no bitterness in there. A nice, well rounded and pleasant tea.

It is Christmas Eve, and I am getting excited for the evening! This morning called for something warm and cozy. I chose French Vanilla by Tea Cozy. I received this in a holiday swap a while ago, but I finally transferred this tea into a tin. Delicious tea! The vanilla flavor is subtle and theres a nice sweetness to this tea. There was no bitterness or astringency. I added some sugar and milk, but I think the milk took away a lot of the flavor.

drank Love Goddess by Dragon Tea House

I’m going to have a flowering tea per day to enjoy the holiday weekend! Yesterday was Variety of Colors. Today is Love Goddess! This bloomed up so beautiful! I love how the jasmine flowers make a basket handle and theres a pretty flower at the top. The taste is good too. It is mild with a little nutty taste to it. There is slight jasmine and floral tones to it, but not strong. There was no bitterness to it, surprisingly, as I had steeped this for longer than I thought I should have. After a few sips, I ate some spicy Korean fried chicken, and this tea went well with it.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 8 min or more
