I finally got a flowering teapot to enjoy these! This brew is astonishingly beautiful. The sweet smelling bulb took about six minutes to fully open. The pale topaz liquor had a deep floral and nectar tone as the tea bloomed. The bloom was of long shining spikes at the base with a brilliant golden sheet covering the needles. Two delicate silken white strands ascended from this flower and each were peaked with a beautiful pink flower. The flavor of this brew was so creamy and sweet. I left this in the pot for over eight minutes and there wasn’t a hint of bitterness. The initial sip was sweet, floral, and slightly herbaceous. The brew has a nectar encompassing mouthfeel. I do recommend only brewing this once though. The second steeping is slightly bitter and astringent. This was still incredibly enjoyable, and I can’t wait to show these off.

Young and experienced Tea consumer. I’m continuously learning and developing knowledge about tea. If I have learned anything at all from the world of tea it is that I do not know anything about the world of tea. I enjoy good tea, and I try to acquire the best of the best. I usually brew gongfu but I’ve been known from time to time to resort back to western brewing.

I have an Instagram (haveteawilltravel), and I am proud of my photographs. I use my pictures in my reviews,and I hope that they aid in portraying the beauty of tea and teaware.


Tea Rating System:
I rate my teas based on the category they fall into (Puer, Red, Oolong, Darjeeing, Flushes, Yancha… etc.)
This means that I will rate a Oolong based on how it stands up as a quality Oolong. I try not to compare teas, rather I work to evaluate them on their craftsmanship, harvest, processing, and qi.

I am most strict with Shou and Sheng Puerh, only because of the vast expanse of various experiences, such as; region, vintage, production, processing, etc.
