From The Metropolitan Tea Company

Origin: China – Yunnan Province
Ingredients: Luxury Green Tea, Amaranth + Marigold Blossoms, Mint Leaves

Place 1 pod in a 3-4 cup glass teapot. Gently add boiling water. Watch delicious tea art unfold.

In Mythology, the god Pluto became enamoured with a nymph named Mintha. So passionate was his scandalous love, he completely ignored his wife. So passionate was his wife’s anger, she turned young Mintha into a plant. As the minty highlights pass your tongue, ponder scandalous forbidden love.

Second steep lacked the nice floral sweetness and green tea flavour I felt I experienced in the first, but it did reveal that mint! Not strong…mild enough for even the beau to enjoy, but I liked it. Doesn’t seem nearly as good (quality-wise) as the Sawadeee blooming teas I have enjoyed, but these were a steal and definitely an enjoyable time. I don’t know if I will do a third steep as the bloom opened entirely on number one and isn’t really flavouring up as I might have hoped. We’ll see!

Sipdown!! (Alas I am still only at 149 because I never logged this)

So I had a whole note for this and then accidentally changed the page and thus lost it. I am too lazy to retype it so basically the gist is this bloomed to reveal pink flowers which then promptly floated to the top leaving behind brownish-green leaves. Compared to other blooms I have had, it just wasn’t as pretty. Tastewise, it had a nice mint flavor but nothing special enough that I would seek it out again, especially because it was accompanied by a bitter, drying quality that I was just not enjoying. Nonetheless, I want to thank Roswell Strange for the chance to try something I might not have otherwise.

Sipdown (172/176)!

I wonder if I can get under 170 today…

Anyway, I decided to take advantage of my empty mason jar from this morning’s cold brew to steep the last of my flowering teas and just have a really nice, more aesthetically focused tea drinking experience this afternoon.

This is not the nicest flowering tea I’ve had – by far, but I appreciate getting to sit down and really taking the time to enjoy it for what it is: and that’s a nice, light mint green tea with a simple bloom with a small splash of colour to it.

I don’t think I’d get this again despite it being fairly solid flavoured – I want to try new bloom teas or stick to blooms with either a more potent flavour for home use (like today) or a more showy appearance for when I’m sharing them with others.

I know I’ve sent this to VariaTEA so I look forward to hearing her thoughts! :)
