Of course, watching the tea bloom is most of the fun, but this sweetly flavored tea was a great surprise. It was big enough for a whole pot in my Teavana Belle Amitié glass pot. Per the instructions, I let it steep for 10 minutes after filling the pot with water heated to the “green setting” on my electric kettle (I need to actually measure the temp at some point…). I had mine with a little bit of blue agave.

I won’t lie – I like my tea sweet. I’m the girl dumping two packets of sugar into my jasmine tea at the sushi place, stirring it with my chopstick. Earl Grey, predictably, makes me cringe. Black teas get the milk and sugar treatment; my greens are sweetened with agave. I’ll drink loose tea, but I prefer bagged teas for convenience. I know I have a, shall we say, “unrefined” palette when it comes to these things, but I know enough to not boil the hell out of my green tea.
