Episode 163: Tiffany Rose

I haven’t reviewed a blooming tea in a while, but I recently found out about Tea Laden and their huge (and cheap!) selection of blooming teas and loaded up on several of them. First up: Tiffany Rose.

Tiffany Rose is a nice rose-scented green tea with an amaranth blossom woven in the center. It’s a nice, mild cup of tea, although I found the amaranth a bit bitter. It’s not bad, and with Tea Laden’s huge selection, I’ve got plenty more blooming teas to choose from.

Episode 185: 1000 Day Flower

Tea Laden’s 1000 Day Flower just sounds like a really cool name for a tea. And look at the little bloom! It looks like a tiny flower bud! You’ve gotta hand it to them for variety.

As far as taste, though? Eh…it’s alright. I’m certainly not seeing fireworks over it, but it’s a good, mild, middle-of-the-road tea to sip on throughout the day. And it looks pretty in a teapot. That counts for something, doesn’t it?

Episode 232: Three Flower Bouquet

I know it’s been a while since I’ve reviewed a blooming tea, but I definitely plan on reviewing some more in the future. Let’s start with this lovely Three Flower bouquet from Tea Laden! This lavender and green tea blossom contains amaranth, jasmine, and lily.

This is a tasty tea! The three flowers come together to produce a light marzipan flavor with a bit of a starchy aftertaste. Blooming teas tend to be light on flavor, but not this one!

Episode 257: Amaranth Mushroom

Don’t let the name of this blooming tea scare you off — the “mushroom” in Tea Laden’s Amaranth Mushroom refers to the shape of the tea bloom. Jasmine-scented green tea is woven around a chrysanthemum and an amaranth flower to create this unique shape.

This little baby is packing a punch of flavor! The jasmine is sweet and floral, with accents of honey from the chrysanthemum. Try it out today!
