Where To Buy: Alice’s Fine Tea
This bloom unfolds into beautiful birds perched in a golden nest surround by green. Not only is it visually surprising, but the taste is surprisingly spicy and reminds one of autumn, like pumpkin pie!. One of the favorites at Alice’s Fine Teas, a delicious, warm, soothing tea. Ingredients: Marigold (believed to help circulation and ease stomach ache), Lily (said to enhance energy and to have a cooling effect) and Silver Needle Tea
Surprisingly this DOES taste a lot like pumpkin or maybe more of a butternut squash with yummy spice notes underneath! As it cools at room temperature it does taste more like pumpkin…not really pumpkin pie, but pumpkin. It’s almost like a flavored silver needle! It’s very nice – very surprising! It’s also slightly peppery in the middle of the sip but finishing somewhat soothing and flatter.
The 2nd infusion…is completely different. It’s floral from start to finish and a little bitter…but floral bitter, not bad bitter. I would say more marigold, specifically.
I will say this is one of the more perfectly bloomed Flowering Teas I have had…it had no problem blooming whatsoever! It was very beautiful and it was very aromatic even before infusing. This is certainly a tea for special occasions and certainly a piece of art! I enjoyed this quite a bit.
