I was excited when I received the opportunity to review the Primula Flowering Tea Gift Set, thanks to Stephen at Bender Media. However, due to a mix-up, when I received the shipment, it contained only the Primula Tea Flowers (i.e. I did not receive the tea pot or infuser). Since I don’t own a 40 ounce glass teapot, I placed my tea flower in an eight cup glass measuring cup with hot water.
The tea flowers are individually wrapped and look like a shriveled Brussels sprout when you first remove them from the package. Fortunately, they smell better than a Brussels sprout. The flower is actually quite pretty once fully opened. I’ve read that green tea should steep for 2-3 minutes, so I taste tested the tea after allowing it to steep for about three minutes. It was weak to my taste, so I waited another four minutes. It was actually pretty good, although a true tea enthusiast would probably say I ruined it by steeping it too long and by adding sugar.
I would recommend the Primula Flowering Tea to anyone who enjoys tea.
