Happy Birthday, Lady Marvin of the Lamp Post!
Tea Review: Simply Good Blooming Flower TeaIn honor of Lady Marvin's birthday I wanted to do a tea review. And since she was the one who helped us embrace loose leaf tea through watching dancing tea leaves in a clear tea pot...what better kind to review than blooming tea.
What is blooming tea? Well, they are special blends designed to open slowly and reveal a flower. Here I have one from Simply Good Tea and one from Numi tea. I'm going to use the Simply Good one today.
For these you want to use a clear pot or the artistic display is lost.
Since this is a Simply Good Tea, I think I'll use the infuser bottle.
Take the blooming tea bundle and pop it in your container.
Pour in hot water and watch...
Hmmm, there may not be enough room - Quick Xyra! Switch the containers.
Yes, that's better! See it opening.
Ooo! I love it! Check out the full blossom! Very pretty.
Now, let's taste it. The package says this is from the Fujian region and has some caffeine. I think it might be a blend of green and white teas. It has a very delicate flavor, perfect as is.
However, if you do need sweetener, I suggest an agave syrup or unflavored honey.
Oh, the package notes this type of tea "drinkable, but mostly for decoration." Well, we've poured off the hot for drinking and now the blossom is floating in cold water.
A great birthday bouquet for Lady Marvin.
