From Numi Organic Tea

Dragon Lily bursts open into an arrangement of superb white tea and stunning flowers. When steeped, sprinkles of osmanthus petals surface and an orange lily blossoms, a mesmerizing display. This translucent liquor imparts a velvety sweet apricot flavor.

Th tea was okay, but I always found the second batch to be more enjoyable than the first one, similar to the oolong blooming tea by Numi. The flower display was more interesting than the tea’s taste.

My first blooming tea. Definitely one that is better to look at rather than drink. It was extremely bitter and still hours later leaves a bad after taste lingering in my mouth. Couldn’t really taste much else, and re steeping it didn’t help. Display was beautiful though

The display of the tea turned out beautiful, as you can tell in the picture above. Everyone in the English department spend time “oohing” and “ahhing” over it as it opened form the tiny bud to during the time while it was steeping the second and third pot full of water. Because I was surrounded by wonderful English people helping and commenting the whole way all of them got to try it, too.

This one started out as a very weak tea (thought admittedly that’s probably my fault for being too enthusiastic and drinking it minute later). It’s a beautiful, but only slightly darker, shade of the one above. It’s a soft, subtle apricot flavor during the early stage. Given anywhere between twenty and forty minutes of steeping it gathers a more obvious but sharp flavor. It’s a good flavor regardless of being either warm or tepid.

All of this done without sugar or milk. Other advice and thoughts; this would be a good tea to sip slowly across an evening while reading a book.

I am glad I have Bodum cups to watch these teas flower in. I was so excited to finally try these, after every time I passed them by in the store. It takes a little while to finally see them open up, but once they do, it’s quite a sight to see. The flavor is not as strong as I would like, but tastes like a typical green tea. The flowering show was better than the actual brew, but nonetheless I was pleased to have tried them.

Not bad, but nothing too special. Granted, it’s a couple years old, so who knows if it’s lost something between now and then, but I wouldn’t buy it for myself. Just tastes like tea, with a bit of a different flavour which is presumably from the flowers. I also wasn’t a fan of the numerous pieces that floated to the top as I had to scoop them out – hazard of steeping it in a large glass mug with no filter? Going to re-steep in a while so I don’t feel guilty about throwing it out!
