The visual effect of a blooming flower is overwhelming, but the tea itself really takes time to brew and enjoy, because at first it’s very watery and disappointing.
It took about fifteen minutes for the strong aroma to develop. Nice sweetish strawberry and grassy notes of the base white tea, plus subtle flowery aromas from jasmine and rose..
The taste is slightly sour, very fresh, with strong strawberry notes and good-quality white tea in the background.
Probably the second steep, after unraveling all the threads, is going to be even more rewarding.

I drink tea almost constantly.

However, my tea drinking can be divided into two main categories.

1. I work a lot at my computer and when I work, I need to always have tea at hand. That’s when I drink bag varieties, mostly black blends, often corporate ones. They need to be at least drinkable, of course, but I don’t focus on the taste much, though I don’t go below a certain level…

2. When I read (and read a lot) or when I’m just relaxing, I savor tea. That’s when the better varieties come into play, that’s when I use leafs instead of bags, that’s when I really focus on what I’m drinking.

I’m Polish, temporarily living in Copenhagen, Denmark.
