From Whittard of Chelsea

Not sure whether to give flowers or tea? We’ve rolled both into one with this flowering tea: just place one “bulb” in your teapot, add hot water, and watch as the beautiful tea leaves unfurl in a stunning floral infusion.

Each flowering tea is hand-tied with delicate green tea leaves, giving a nutty, roasted aroma and a springlike taste. It’s an infusion that tastes as good as it looks – the flowers can be reinfused up to 3 times, and there’s five in a pack. We’d recommend using a glass teapot to appreciate the full spectacle, and using freshly boiled water to open the leaves fully.

Decided to give this tea another go, I do have 3 more bulbs to get through and I can’t bear the thought of throwing tea away.

First steep was the same as before; disappointing. No rose flavour or aroma at all. The marigold has a nice warming flavour but it overpowers everything. I can get 3 small cups from my teapot, so by the third cup it was very bitter too from the green tea.

Instead of throwing it away, I decided to refill the teapot for a second infusion. It’s milder this time and quite calming. The marigold is still the dominant flavour but it’s somehow starting to become creamy. Distinctive nutty notes are coming through too. More palatable but no flavour from the green tea leaves.

It’s going back in the cupboard. Maybe I’ll try again in the summer. Might even try it iced, although I’m not sure how that will work with a blooming tea or if it will suit the warmth of the marigold.
