SSTTB take 1!
I missed out last year due to my busted ankle, so I’m stoked this time ’round!
This is my first blooming tea, and I’m about 3 pots in and it’s finally all the way open and pretty! I need a bigger tea pot….or more people to drink the tea, haha!
I feel like I could have safely used hotter water (not quite boiling, but hotter than my usual 175 for green teas) because even with the 3 steeps being long ones, there’s not really any bitterness. But ho boy is the jasmine punchy! Yum!
Definitely not the highest quality, but it’d be a great one to have on-hand for entertaining purposes because it is so mild, not to mention pretty. I’d pull it out to serve at a wine or fondue night with friends for sure, because I think that even the non-tea people would appreciate it.
Now I REALLY have to pee, hahaha!
