VariaTEA sent me a few of these blooming teas from David’s to try out. Now, my experience to date with blooming teas is that they are largely for the visual senses, with the teas being weaker than i prefer. they’ve also all been green teas, and the ones she sent are black. I opted to treat this as a cold brew for fun and it turns out, that was the right approach for me. this is a nice lighlty flavoured strawberry tea that is pleasant to drink. I cut the water in half and it’s been steeping for longer than the 10 minutes…but it’s gone from being a floating poop of tea, to a nice bloom :) with a decent strawberry brew haha. thanks for sharing variatea!
