From M&K's Tea Company

Sweet Chinese violets, creamy and sweet with just a hint of floral flavor! If you enjoy the lighter side of life (chamomile, rose buds, green tea) you will love this tea. Just throw a couple of flowers in some boiling water, and–viola! You have some sweet violet tea. Although this isn’t a rare flower, it is a difficult tea to locate, which makes us extra happy to offer it to our customers.

Sadly, I did not care for this guy at all. I was so excited to try it, but it just wasn’t what I was expecting. Instead of any floral notes that I expected, I was met with pure artichoke water. Very similar to chrysanthemum.

I have been dying to try this tea! I got it in my sampler from M&K and it is lovely. Very light and mellow with sweet floral undertones and a very smooth and consistent taste. I am thinking of trying this iced next time I brew it, although I don’t have as much experience with iced teas. I added a drizzle of clover honey, which accents the delicate flavors of this tea very well. The suggested brew is two whole flowers, although the company recommends 8 oz of water while I used 12. This made the flavors a bit weaker but I am pleased overall with this tea. The whole flowers are gorgeous to watch as the tea brews, and this excited me for other floral teas I have waiting in my cupboard. I think this tea goes to show that even a simple, single-ingredient brew can be wonderful

Second Brew
I re-steeped this in 8 oz of water with 1/2 tsp of rock sugar and it was even better than the first brew. The floral notes were stronger and there was a soft vegetal undertone that rounded out the flavor. I also think the rock sugar better accented the natural sweetness of the violets. I definitely recommend brewing this tea stronger for a better experience, but even brewed weak I really enjoyed this tea.

Backlog:

I’m always confused at how to categorize flower teas/tisanes like this. So I categorized it as a flowering herb. Neither of these categories is a satisfactory term for what this tea is though – at least, not in my opinion.

This is lovely. I wasn’t prepared for just how much I’d like this. This is one of the nicer flower teas that I’ve ever tasted. It’s better than chamomile. It’s similar to a rose bud type of tea but I find rosebud tea to be slightly sharper than this. This is softer, fluffy tasting. Creamy.

This doesn’t taste perfume-y or soapy. The floral notes are actually ‘barely there’ – I’m tasting only a very gentle floral taste. This is more of a creamy experience.
