A review of Lotus Tea (Slim Line) by In Nature

Date: 09/17/2012
Company: In Nature
Tea Name: Lotus Tea
Tea Type/Varietal: Green
Region:
Steeping Vessel/Amt. Leaf: Cup/leaf
Plucking Season:
Liquor Color: Golden brown
Leaf Characteristics: The leaves are squarely cut and medium in size, they are very dry and soft not crunchy; not fried/fired it seems. When steeped/immersed in the water they seem to remain the same, as they absorb no water. They are not damp or weighted down with first steeping for five minutes. The leaves do not smell vegetal or smells of leeks, instead the aroma is somewhat rosy/floral sweet bouquet.

  1. Steepings on a scale of 1-5 tea is 5+

1st Steeping: 5 minutes
Water temperature: 190 Fahrenheit
Time: 4-5 minutes in the morning

Note: I had to clean my cup since I have been drinking many black teas as the coloring of my cup seem to have been altered; It is my favorite cup and large enough for tea leaves. After scrubbing my cup to its original color and warming it with hot water; I open my newly bag of Lotus Tea and take one (full) spoonful of the leaves and add this in my cup and waited for the cold water to boil and when it is boiling I pour the water over the leaves in the cup and let to stand for about five minutes.

Tea’s aroma is lovely floral bouquet; the lotus blossoms are on top of the leaves, I like how the leaves become fuller and their coloring a bit darker with the added water. I strained the tea into a smaller cup and take note of the brownish color of the tea and its aroma. Tea is smooth and warm, very mild tea and not at all astringent.

Overall, this tea is a sweet calming cup of tea to be enjoyed throughout the day.

2nd Steeping: 5 minutes
Water temperature: 200 Fahrenheit
Time: brewed another cup for about 5 minutes about an hour later into the morning.

Note: My second steeping of teas tend to convey how I will continue to drink the tea throughout the day. I plan on having this tea for the rest of morning and mid-day, as I will be having it mildly warm, not quite ice tea but cool enough.

I like the sweetness that this tea continue to offer and that I need not add a thing to it other than boiled water and to simply let it cool down.

I cannot express enough how happy I am with this tea. It is luxury in a cup.

I recently had a LOTUS tea from Persimmon Tree Tea and LOVED it! Had never had a lotus tea before so maybe this is something to do more looking into! I may have to try this as well. Although I am perfectly happy with Persimmon’s lotus.

I enjoy a lovely cup of tea most days,and I like sharing my tea experiences with the world. I have been doing this for most of two years now.

I am at that thresh hold, unsure of how to proceed and why. My blog page is there for viewing and I am thankful for the experience as I have been allowed. Thank you everyone, sorry to have failed by not writing a tea book. I simply could not do it. I simply could not.
