From ESGREEN

This blooming tea has an original shape of an tiny ball and when put in boiling water a bouquet of tea leaves and flower. The aromas of both flowers and tea leaves are very well preserved and these exceptional teas develop a wonderful flavor and create at the same time a beautiful “table decoration”.

I thought this one was a bit, I don’t know, just ok, to look at. It tasted good though. I wondered if mine was tied wrong or something.

Ours looked like a big green mutated hundred legged spider with a flower on top, we enjoyed it tho. I poured it out in the front yard finally and a few days later it scared the hell out of me I actually thought it was a huge Spider lol

Guess mine wasn’t tied wrong as a spider is exactly what I thought it looked like. I hate spiders. There was a monster of a spider on the jamb of the garage door this evening right at the back of my car. It is a tight squeeze between the frame and my car. I stood there looking at it for a long time before I finally held my breath and ran. I hate spiders.

I would have gone right back inside the house lol

The pod is nice sized eyeball with a white cornea and a pink iris. Well at least that is what it reminded me of this morning. I put it in my press and poured 12oz of boiling water over it and waited for the display. This one opened oddly. It resembles a pineapple. The flower is surrounded by tea leaf but beneath it is a big bulb. I examined it closer and the bulb is wrapped in string so this is intentional. It looks like a big freakin’ spider. There seemed to be a large amount of leaf coming loose from the pod.

The color of the liquor is light yellow with a green tint. It is very clear. The scent is green tea.

The sip has only a light touch of what I think is globe amaranth. This pleases me as I find it can turn a tea sour tasting. This is not sour. In combination with the tea leaf this takes on a very unusual taste that is a bit like oak or maybe nutty. It reminds me of young sheng with out the bite. That is as close a match as I can come up with. It is mildly sweet, lightly floral, and feels milky. Actually it feels more silky than like milk. This is the first blooming tea I have had that was not jasmine. I don’t miss the jasmine.

After a few cups, I cut the string on the bulb and set the leaf free. There is a lot of leaf in this pod. My press looked like a giant gaiwan. It was stuffed with leaf.

Normally I like the display of blooming teas and tolerate the taste. Here the display was just ok, but I actually enjoyed the taste. It is a pleasant uncomplicated tea with a very light floral taste.

you’re so brave! – I can’t bring myself to drink the ‘blooming’ tea, it just creeps me out so much ! LOL

The blooming tea was easy to try. Now my first puerh – that was brave ;) Of course I would never have learned I love them if I hadn’t tried. The worse that can happen is you turn up your nose and (gasp) pour it out.
