Ohhhh… this is so lovely!
I know that I’ve tried at least one other tea that was blended with sepalika flowers, but, I don’t recall the tea at this time. It’s been a while … and I think I may have forgotten just how lovely this “night flowering jasmine” truly is. The flavor of this Floral Green Tea Blend from De Vos Tea is delicate and sweetly floral … not at all overwhelming. It’s so delightful, it’s almost dreamy just how good it is.
I love that the flowery touch of this tea is not a strong or fake kind of flavor … it tastes light and sweet and natural. It doesn’t taste like perfume or soap. It just tastes beautiful and it is enchanting!
The green tea has a soft taste and texture to it. The texture is “almost creamy” … that is to say it doesn’t really taste or feel “buttery” or any of the other “creamy” kind of sensations … it is almost a “fluffy” kind of creaminess … the way it would taste and feel if you were to bite into a baked meringue. That is not to say it tastes like a baked egg white … but it has that light, airy, creamy kind of taste and and mouthfeel.
The green tea doesn’t taste overwhelmingly “vegetative.” There is some vegetal notes here, reminiscent of a mild vegetable with hints of sweet grass notes. It is overall a very mellow, smooth green tea taste that melds amazingly well with the soft, sultry flavor of the sepalika flowers.
A delightful floral experience … if you appreciate floral teas, you really have GOT to try this one!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
