I placed my 1st order w/ The Tea Farm just to get their free dragonwell so I wanted something available in a 2oz size and was less than $3. I also didn’t want to try something that (like dragonwell) I could easily find somewhere else so I went w/ this one. I’ve never even heard of the Champaca flower before. So my apologies, but I really have no idea what I’m doing w/ this review… or more specifically what I should be smelling and tasting to compare to.

What… an… interesting… tea! This is by far the strangest tea I’ve seen. The raw flowers are a gorgeous dark reddish purple color and are huge! They greatly out scale the coiled and twisted green tea leaves. The aroma is that of flowers, sweetness (almost in the form of fruityness), and a hint of pepper.

I have no clue what the base tea is so, until I do, I go w/ the suggested (although suspiciously general) temp and time. I make some adjustments elsewhere though. I do not rinse and I use 6oz of water instead of 8.

The liquor is a light, buttery yellow which is no surprise given the small amount of actual tea that was in my tablespoon. The aroma is that of the raw leaf, only w/ less pepper. The flavor is nearly identical to the aroma, only stronger… I’m still amazed by this tea. It definitely needs time to sink in. Definitely worth the $2.32/oz (~15 cents a cup) to try it. And if you don’t like it, give it to 14 friends (there are ~15 servings/2oz) for one of the most unique green tea experiences they’ve had!

2nd infusion, 4min: After the 1st infusion and decantion the tea leaves are much closer in size to the flowers and look like raffia. The liquor of this infusion is darker than the 1st, a beautiful golden color. The aroma is ever so lightly lighter. The flowery aspect to flavor is not weaker, but the tea flavor is stronger which makes for a more balanced cuppa. The flavor lingers in my mouth, leaving a strange, but good, feeling.

Cofftea

I’m noticing it’s slightly astringent (or is it bitter?) as it cools.

Sounds cool!

Cofftea

It’s one of those teas that leaves you speachless. I can’t decide if it’s like drinking perfume or not… you’d think it would be obvious lol!

Veri-Tea

Sounds really interesting.

Cofftea

3rd infusion, 5min: Ever so slightly lighter liquor and flavor, but still a very good cuppa!

Cofftea

4th infusion, 6min: Much lighter in both liquor and taste, but the taste is not weak. It’s still a well balanced cuppa. The leaves are done though. As good as this cup is, I doubt the quality of the next.

Champaca are the flowers that Nag Champa incense (most popular in the 60’s) is based on. I was eyeing this tea too—I love Nag Champa incense!
