Why we like it
A few years ago, Roman met a family of Kunming tea traders. He made friends with them and would often spend hours at their shop trying out new teas and talking about tea and life. One day he asked what kind of tea they liked the most. The man sad he liked higher quality sheng pu’er (see Silver Trip). The woman smiled and pointed to a small ceramic jar from a shelf. She said that the mix of three flowers inside was her favorite. We gave it a try and thought that it would be a good idea to make Flower Trip part of our collection. The chrysanthemum in the mix tastes a bit like chamomile, the rose blossoms add a tinge of pink to the beverage and cover the slight bitterness of the honeysuckle.
