This was a Christmas gift from my neighbor this year and I was impressed that she remembered that I love floral teas. I hadn’t heard of Teavana before, but then again, I generally avoid the mall like the plague.
I really wanted to like this, in theory I should have loved it, it’s a floral white tea which is my favorite. I’m really glad I didn’t open this immediately to smell it, because my husband says the look on my face was priceless. This smells like potpourri and you completely lose the taste of anything but the orchid.
I really tried with this one. I played with temperature, time, and sweeteners, but I just couldn’t make this one work for me. My next step is blending it with something else, so if any one has any suggestions I’d love to hear them. Otherwise, I have a feeling that I’ll be making sachets filled with this to put in my hope chest, at least it will make the blankets smell good.
