Black Gold from California Tea House is a Blooming Tea or a Flowering Tea that is made of a Black Tea Base, Jasmine, and Marigold. Once hot water was added and the ball of tea bloomed it floated around in the tea pot gracefully. It was beautiful.
Like other blooming teas or flowering teas Black Gold from California Tea House took a while to completely come to life.
The first infusion – even after 5 minutes or more – was a very mellow color and flavor. It was floral and tasty but not as dark or powerful as I thought it would be coming from a black tea base.
The second infusion was still lighter in color and but more aromatic and flavorful. It wasn’t overly powerful but the flavor was lovely. I would still consider Black Gold from California Tea House to be delicate and mellow most likely because I enjoy the ‘stronger the better’ in a black tea.
I was able to get 3 or 4 infusions out of this blooming tea/flowering tea. I enjoyed it and it had a nice flavor. I’m still on the search for an over-the-top malty, bakey type black tea based blooming tea/flowering tea.
Here’s the scoop!
Leaf Type: Black
Where to Buy: California Tea House
