Sandy and I are making our way through some more delightful teas today.

This is the first high quality flowering tea I have had. I bought some at Southern Season and some at a tea room over a year ago and it was faded both in taste and color. I threw the reminding ones away. They were that bad. I had hoped to serve them at special events, but the tea was so flavorless and the show so lackluster that I discarded the idea.

This is another story! I love the color and shape! The two white dragons holding up the marigold unfolded sweetly and continued to expand and bloom. As delighted as I was with the show, the taste of the tea is equally delightful. It is sweet, not bitter at all, and there is a warm, nuttiness to the base that i have found in some oolongs. I am very pleased with this and would definitely be inclined to serve it at special occasions.

Thank you, Angel and Teavivire!

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about eight years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

I am also reviewing for Sororitea Sisters now!

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
