The beau bought 6 of these tonight. We’d never had a flowering tea before and he went a bit overboard…Luckily, it all worked out! I’m not so clear on what is in this tea, but I can say that it is absolutely delicious. I always think I don’t like floral teas, but it’s not true. I don’t like chamomile yet, but every other floral tea I have is delicious. For $2.50 apiece (we got a discount buying 6, and got a free tin to store them in) they are a treat in the teapot, but a delightful tea as well. The tea is very mild tasting, and sort of sweet. Natural sweet though, the way that vegetables can be. I really am enjoying it. We’re on our second steep already…Hopefully we get a few more.

((This one really opened up on the first steep and is really pretty!!))

ps – I get a hint of spiciness on the sip, but the beau doesn’t. Not sure why. We both agree that this (the second steep) is more flavourful than the first. Also, I’m loving my new koi teacup for this lovely tea!

I’ve been drinking loose tea since 2010 and my tastes have changed a lot over those years. For the last few, I’ve been a fan of unflavoured Chinese blacks and shu puerh. I still drink other things, but that’s where I am.

I live in a rural area with my husband, cat, and soon to be firstborn. I love tea, reading, doctor who, knitting, crosswords, board games, the marvel universe, and lots of other things.

I’m not often rating teas numerically any more but I want to leave this to explain my past ratings:
I try to only log teas once or twice because I drink a lot of the same ones repeatedly. My rating is based on my perception of the tea at first tasting and is adjusted if anything notable occurs in subsequent cups. I may also factor in the price and customer service but try to note that when I can.

81 – 100: These are great teas, I love them, regularly stock them or savour them as unique treats.
71 – 80: These are solid. I drink them, I like them, I may or may not keep them on hand regularly. This is still good stuff.
61 – 70: Just okay. I can drink it, but it doesn’t stand out to me. Might be lower quality, not to my taste, or outside my comfort zone.
41 – 60: Not likely to keep drinking…hoping hubby will enjoy!
0 – 40: No thank you, please. Take it away and don’t make me finish the cup.
