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.
