From The Tea Spot

Our best seller! This blend of pure Chinese white tea, rosebuds and jasmine pearls creates an experience of aromatherapy that sharpens the mind and arouses the senses. The floral, exotic scent of night–blooming Jasmine is uplifting and soothing, and is used as an anti-depressant in herbal medicine. Rosebuds are used to ease nervous tension and stress, and have a calming effect on the mind. This combination works together to enhance the light, subtle flavor of the white tea leaves. This tea brews into a golden liquor with a very soothing fragrance, and is perfect before, during, or after a stressful day.

Here’s how you know you have too much tea: I bought 2 oz of this tea about a year and a half ago in a sale at the Tea Spot, and when I pulled it out this morning I realized that the bag has never been opened. Yup, still heat-sealed closed.

Fortunately being sealed preserved it. I brewed this a bit hotter than I have in the past, more like I’ve been brewing white teas lately with Teavivre’s instructions. There is this western sense that white teas need to be babied, have to be brewed really cool, but that’s really not true. It’s kind of like the false notion that white teas are low caffeine and relaxing, when to many people white tea makes them wired! I certainly feel energized by a cup of white tea. I like how when they are brewed hotter they get more robust, more bready, and sometimes even a kind of cocoa-y note comes out.

This one reacted similarly. The rose and jasmine play well together here and are lovely, if you love florals. The white tea definitely had notes of hay and grains and yeasty bread. I must make an effort to drink this one more often (obviously).

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 2 min, 0 sec
Veronica

Huh, maybe I need to try brewing them at a higher temp. I’ve never really liked whites because they always seem to be underwhelming.

Dinosara

Yeah, I would give them a shot ati 195°F… I like them much more that way.

My order from the Tea Spot came today, & now I’m at Tony’s in my PJs having a cup. I have loved this tea from the first time I saw the tin it comes in. It’s just so beautiful, with the rosebuds, so aromatic with the rosebuds & jasmine, so flavorful with the rosebuds, jasmine pearls, & white tea. If I was depressed, which I’m not (& haven’t been since I started practicing mindfulness), this tea would be perfect therapy. It’s especially nice to drink in the bubble bath (with EO’s ‘Renew’, rose & chamomile essential oils…ahhhh….)

It is aromatherapy in a cup!

MsWhatsit

Oooh, sounds lovely!

oh Terri….i tried. For you, i tried. I pulled this one out of the box of samples that Terri sent me after seeing Dinosara’s post about rose tea. I warned Terri and promised myself whatever she sent i would try. So try i did! For the record? I’m sure this is a lovely tea if you enjoy licking flower beds ;) Ok so it’s not that bad, but floral teas are truly not up my alley. If i rated this purely on the basis of how pretty it is, it’d be up there in terms of rating. As it stands, i’m not going to rate it because i don’t like floral teas. In an attempt to try and provide some unbiased feedback – this is a smooth tea that captures that rose essence. Additionally, if you like jasmine pearls, the rose in this blends really nicely with it.

Thanks Terri!

Dinosara

Haha, one of my favorites. :D

Sil

of course it is….of course it is LOL

Terri HarpLady

I originally bought this one (years ago) because it’s just so beautiful to look at! Amazingly beautiful! It’s one of those teas you just have to brew in glass, so you can watch the rosebuds & pearls swimming around, LOL. During those days (seems so long ago) I was a vegan, I had green tea & fruit for breakfast most day, & this was one of my go-tos.
I still enjoy it! It’s one of the few flavored greens I like, & although I don’t drink it often, I’ve now purchased it more than once. I figured it would be a “no” for you, but it’s good to take a walk on the wild side once in awhile! I applaud your bravery! And your honesty, LOL!

Sil

someday i will have tried all the teas…ALL THE TEAS!

Terri HarpLady

Me too! Everything!

TastyBrew

I’m with you. If the word floral is in the description it’s tough for me to try it. Good for you for overcoming ;-)

Sil

yeah there are a few things i have come to learn that i don’t enjoy. floral teas, bergamot and jasmine. I still keep putting them in my mouth though i won’t purchase them lol

TastyBrew

Those are all on my list too. Funny. FYI.. It’s taking all my willpower to remember this is a public forum and not make bad (albeit hilarious) joke about your previous statement.

Sil

Lol yup, I do that all the time. “Keep it inside…keep it inside” :)

Terri HarpLady

Yeah, there’s lots of room for inappropriate commentary here, at which admittedly I excel. Sometimes Ms Theresa looks at me & says, “walk about from the keyboard Terri, you are NOT going to say THAT!”

It’s been a busy day so I thought I’d pull this one out. It’s nice and calming. Floral and sweet. I need to make some more time to just sit and enjoy my tea.. not throw it in a tumbler and scuttle everywhere.

Terri HarpLady

Me too! I feel like lately I’m just running back & forth, drinking most of my teas on the go, or while teaching, or while cooking. I need to just sit still & sip! Preferably in my sunroom with all my plants, on a sunny day so that the crystals in my windows are throwing rainbow butterflies everywhere…sigh…yes…I need to do that! I love Meditative Mind, although it’s currently not in my cupboard. I’ll have to get more when I place my next tea spot order.

After a six-hour car ride, I’m finally in Boston to visit some family. They had a few teas in the house, most of which weren’t loose leaf, but this is one of the ones that was and I thought it sounded like a nice calming tea after a stressful day and it certainly was. I’m turning to white teas for moments of calm more and more recently, and this blend was very good for that purpose. The subtle flavor of the white peony blends perfectly with the light floral notes of the jasmine pearls and rosebuds (of which there is just the right amount to make it a light floral accent rather than an overpowering aroma). Very nice. I’ll have to see what kinds of tea shops I can find around Boston.

Michelle

If you’re in the Harvard Square area, definitely check out Tealuxe. It’s a little tea cafe, and they sell the leaf as well. I really like their Harvard Square Earl Grey, the Golden Monkey and their Dragonwell. (Also if you’re in Harvard Square, check out Sweet – a fantastic cupcake bakery).

There’s also Virtuous Teas in Newton, which is a really cute store. They’ve got lots of vintage teacups. It’s really nice how they sell blending ingredients as well as teas – their Tropical Oolong and White Peony are great.

Enjoy Boston!

Scatterbrain

Thank you so much for the information. I’ll try to check them both out. :) I believe the place I’m in now is called Needham.

Michelle

Depending where you are in Needham, I think Newton’s about 20 minutes. Not sure about HS :)

The Tea Spot

Thanks for the lovely review, Kyle! Calm is what this tea is all about. :)

Thank you Bo at the Tea Spot for this Sample Tea

One of the first tea’s I loved was a Rose tea. It surprised me that I didn’t gag like I was drinking perfume…. even though it smelled like cologne.
I never liked the Bottled Rose Syrup my Nephew David slathered on pancakes or favored in Baklava (a taste he came to love on Cyprus where he was born).
Tea was different somehow. The flavor was always sweet but more like soft floral honey.

When I opened this tea packet from The Tea Spot the whole top half was pretty packed with pretty Rose Buds.
I dug around looking for the Jasmine tea strands to gather bits for a good cup to brew. It was hard to control the amount considering the size of the flowers and white leaves so I used a large mug and finum basket with a little more leaf and water.
The temperature is suggested 176F for 2-4 minutes. (I would go for the full 4 minutes!)

The flavor was a good balance of Jasmine and Rose. Very floral and not very astringent at all, (I think that’s what other reviews referred to as harshness).
To get the most out of the beautiful floral flavor I would add sweetening. There’s no way I would drink this without sweetness to make the flowers nectar. Even honey would be an acceptable addition, especially a very mild wildflower honey.

A calming tea that is exactly as the name implies…good for quiet time and relaxation.

I found this on sale at my supermarket on clearance for 3.99. The date was good so I bought it. This is a very interesting tea, you can smell the jasmine and rose petals. It is kind of an aromatherapy. The jasmine and rose flavors are light and mixed with the white tea. Its not heavy Jasmine like Andrews and Dunham Jasmine. Its a very nice tea for relaxing and sipping during the evening. This is not a tea I would drink everyday but it is good for a change of pace.

Hmm they offer Tea Spot at supermarkets!?!?

~lauren.

Such a visually attractive tea (going by the photo)!

SoccerMom

I was surprised at central market (HEB Supermarket) yesterday when I noticed they sale adagio tea (in teabags) and Republic of Tea in the serve your self part of the health foods dept.

Dan

I found this at Shaws in Bath, Maine. You never know what you are going to find. I shop at T.J.Maxx also. The tea looks just like the picture.

Thank you Sil for this sample.

I have the start of what I call ‘tea belly’ so something light would be best to continue my tea marathon with. As a blend it’s attractive and fragrant, nice to see the tea pearls blending in nicely. Scent is very floral and sweet, like a secret rose garden with one bench and your sat there in the sun with your eyes closed just absorbing it’s beautiful aura.

Once steeped the tea looks mushy inside the teapot and weird..not as attractive as it’s raw form. The tea soup is golden in colour with a sweet rose scent.

Flavour is stronger than I thought it would be and I wish I opted for a weaker steep time (maybe around 2-3 minutes). As it’s so strong it has a little bitterness and a sort of waxy tone but only on a minor scale.

The rose is sweet and natural tasting and there is something sweeter in the background that I believe to be jasmine. I think as a blend it’s too floral, the rose and jasmine are competing against each other for dominance and I just don’t think it blends as smoothly as it should. It’s alright but just not for me so I wont be rating this one. Would suit someone that loves strong flower teas.

I smell the leaves: they have a strong aroma of roses…

I taste the plain liquid.

It is dry yet just a hint of sweet prevails! It is also very floral, very rosy.

When I look at the tea in my mug, the liquor is a clear green…

I add sweet.

The sweet brings out the floral flavor of the roses nicely.

I go outside, in burning heat, to watch my little brother skateboard.

Sipping the tea, I think of clouds on this cloudless day…

The tea is still dry.

I have my little brother try some.

“Tastes like sugary water roses.” he says with a matter-of-fact tone as a wide grin spreads across his face.

I smile back.

I suppose he’s right.

This is a nice tea for deep thinking, as the name suggests it is. It makes me think of slow-moving clouds shifting distantly in the sky.

The smell is very floral, and the taste follows. It’s lighter than I expected, but I don’t mind — the flowers don’t overwhelm. There isn’t much of a tea taste here, just enough to establish itself as white tea and then let the flowers take over. (A bolder tea base might have been more interesting, but I personally enjoy the way it is quite a bit.)
