I received this sample from JK Tea Shop on Monday, but, my Mondays and Tuesdays are generally pretty hectic since they are typically hubby’s days off, and we’re always out running errands and such… so I saved trying this tea until this evening when I could really give it my full attention.

Based on AmazonV’s suggestion, I brewed these beautiful blossoms 3 minutes. The resulting liquor is a very pale, even paler than pale yellow. The aroma is vegetal and floral, but perhaps more vegetative than floral.

The flavor is very smooth and fresh tasting. It has a floral taste to it (not surprising, right?) and an interesting vegetative quality as well as a pollen-y characteristic – almost sweet, but not quite.

Because I found the flavor a bit in need of a little something after my initial taste, I added a very small amount of raw honey and the result was very pleasing. The addition of honey seems to pump up the natural sweetness of this tisane. It is just ok without the honey, but with the honey, it’s much more pleasant to drink.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
