Brought this in to work with me on one of my first days in the office; I thought that my coworker Celia might have an interest in it since she’s obsessed with flowers/floral teas and has a horticulture background. Like, the way she gets about plants (especially flowers) is basically the way the bulk of us here on Steepster get about tea.
I just figured that this is a tea made out of the flowers of the tea plant, which is cool in and of itself – but it seemed ESPECIALLY up here alley if she hadn’t tried something like this before. Turns out she hadn’t, so we both drank large Grandpa style mugs of this over the course of the work day and geeked out super hard core about tea/flowers together.
This is just a super beautiful tea to look at aesthetically, but it also works REALLY WELL as a Grandpa-style tea since it is really mild and sweet (honeysuckle notes, yo) and just seemed to keep offering up that beautiful floral liquor over and over without dying out on us at all. We both probably topped up out mugs pretty continuously over the course of five or six hours?
