After 4 minutes of steeping this one, the bulb had not completely opened yet – I can just see the very tip of the bloom that will present itself with the next infusion.
This is REALLY good. One of the best blooming teas I’ve tasted in a long time (of course, I can’t really remember when the last time was that I’ve had a blooming tea… unless you count the red peony rosette from Teany that I had this morning… but I don’t consider it to be a “blooming tea” because it doesn’t really bloom). It really does taste like pumpkin and spice! Delicious!
