Enlightening Lotus from Flower Pot Tea Company. . . .

Not being a huge fan of strongly floral teas, finding the right floral tisane can be tricky.  I have issues with lavender so when ever I see a floral tea without lavender especially a tisane, I get quite excited. Enlightening Lotus is by far one of the most stunning flowering teas I’ve brewed up.  Basically this tea is one gorgeous flower.  When put in just the right tea pot, you have one stunning presentation. Simply gorgeous.  My husband even commented by how lovely the presentation of this tea was.  Pops of brilliant yellow filled my tea pot.  How can you Read More

Black Gold from California Tea House

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 Read More

Taster’s Review: I have to admit, the only reason I bought this tea was because it has ‘mushroom’ in the title and it intrigued me since I’m very allergic to mushrooms. Though the tea itself has little to nothing to do with mushrooms, it still felt kind of cool to get to say Read More

French Toast Dianhong Black Flowering Tea from Liquid Proust Teas

Tea Information: Leaf Type:  Black/Flowering Where to Buy:  Liquid Proust Teas Tea Description: As my first batch of French Toast Dian Hong, I decided to go lightly on the flavoring because the natural cocoa taste from the tea is pleasant enough to keep the flavoring at a low amount. This tea proves to pull out different taste from different steeps from my experience and I am hoping you find the same to be true. Learn more about this tea here. Taster’s Review: Some of my favourite tea companies are the ones where you really get a feel for the owners as Read More
