I’ve never tried a blooming tea before but having received a new glass teapot as a gift, I thought this would be a good way to show it off.
The description says it’s “awe-inspiring.” This brings to mind the scene in National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation where Clark is making a big deal about the house lights, plugs them in…then nothing. The tight tea pod opens to unveil a small, pink clover blossom at the top of some scrawny black tea leaves.
There wasn’t much fragrance of note. The flavor wasn’t too bad. There was a slight cereal quality and it was very light. Overall, I wasn’t really impressed.
