drank Pink Passion Flower by Tealish
1908 tasting notes

I’m glad I finally got the chance to try out my Bodum double-walled glasses that I got for Christmas. The blossom was quite well-formed and lovely, though I think the glass was slightly too shallow for it to expand to its fullest height.

Flavour-wise the tea doesn’t taste any different from your basic – if good quality – green tea. The flavour is grassy and lightly astringent with some nutty notes that are more notceable on the re-steep. It holds its flavour nicely through several steeps and it almost seems a shame to throw the spent tea blossom out because it’s so pretty. Ah well, all good things must come to an end, I suppose. The Bodum glasses worked out great by the way – they were comfortable to hold and displayed the flowering tea very nicely.

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.
