One lotus flower was what the sunny day requested.

Those flowers look gorgeous! If they taste even half as good as they look it must have been a tasty brew.

I brewed it in a glass teapot with 500mL of water then refilled a few times. MST said boiling water produced some bitterness, so I opted for something like 185F. It was nutty and very sweet with complex lotus aromatics. Calming, and good for a day of fasting.

Sounds like a lovely way to start the year.

Eventual tea farmer. If you are a tea grower, want to grow your own plants or are simply curious, please follow me so we can chat.

I most enjoy loose-leaf, unflavored teas and tisanes. Always on the lookout for teas from countries and regions not commonly known for tea production or those that are not well represented in the western market. I seek these teas to gain an understanding, however vague, of how this plant performs in different climates.
