My first experience of flowering teas, and a happy one, I’m pleased to report! My brother and his wife bought me a gift set from Teabloom for my birthday, which contained a tube of twelve different fruit flavoured green teas. Now, while fruit teas are something I’ll happily drink, they don’t rate at the top end of my favourite blends. Green teas – I’m still exploring! Still, the concept of flowering teas has always intrigued me and I’ve been excited about trying out these (not to mention the teapot and teapot warmer that came with them)!
I chose the Pomegrante one first and I’m more than pleasantly surprised. This tastes unbelievably fruity. It’s juicy and flavoursome, rather than the watered down artificial-ness I get from a lot of the fruit teas in my cupboard. I was halfway down my cup before I even remembered this is a green tea! There is a grassy edge to this, but the fruitiness dominates by far. I hope I enjoy the other teas in the tube as much as this one.
For Christmas my family gave me some clear mugs and a set of blooming teas in all sorts of flavors. I decided to give the melon tea a try first. Oh. My. Gosh.
The tea opens up with green on bottom with a maroon flower(almost reminded me of a raspberry) in the middle and an arch of delicate white flowers above it. It was gorgeous. The ball stayed together and didn’t lose any petals or leaves.
The flavor of the tea was fantastic. With my experience, blooming teas always end up on the bitter side. There was no bitterness with this one. The melon flavor was very light and didn’t have any artificial taste to it at all. The green tea was very light in this but had soft notes of sugar snap peas and honey.
I got two good steeps out of this little ball. For the first steep I used water at 205 F and the second steep at 185 F. The second steep showed off the green tea a bit more.
