How to spoil yourself with a special cup of Tea - Tea Flower from Flora Tea

Hi There..... Do you need your coffee in the morning or would you rather sip a cup of tea? One more question. Have you ever heard of a tea flower?

If no, you haven't read my previous post about Flora Tea. Maybe it's not the worst idea to read this one first?

I would go for a cup of tea anytime. I never drink coffee because I just don't like the taste of it. Here is another question for you. Did you know January is Hot Tea Month? 😊

I just don't get that. To me, every month is tea month. πŸ˜•

My morning routine starts with having breakfast. Then it's time to hit the bathroom (don't take this literally. I am not aggressive), but before I do, I turn on my tea machine for a nice cup of fruit tea. Then a little later in the day, I prepare myself a cup of green tea with half a teaspoon of honey and 2 large squeezes of my lemon concentrate bottle. πŸ˜‹

I know, I know, real lemons are so much better, but the concentrate is so convenient. No hassle with squeezing or slicing lemons. I found this great quote from Marcus Sakey, "I like really sharp flavors, and I like contrasts. Something sweet and sour at the same time is a big win.". πŸ˜€

What I don't get either is the result from the quiz I took which I found here - The result said I would be a black tea lover and nothing is further from the truth. I hardly ever drink it and when I do it has to be in and out. Hey you, with your twisted mind, this has nothing to do with happy endings. πŸ˜‚

If you leave the satchel in too long, the tea turns bitter, and I really hate that. I am not a fan of anything bitter, as a matter of fact. When I was a kid, my family always grinned when they saw my cup of tea because it more resembled a cup of pee. Pee, Tea, almost sounds the same. Who can tell the difference, right? πŸ˜„

I don't recall drinking any green tea in my childhood days except in the Chinese restaurant. I can still see the sweet little lady from our favorite Chinese restaurant in my mind, even though it has been a long time ago. Her sweet smile is etched on my mind. She even taught us the fun English slogan, "I scream, you scream, we all scream for Ice cream.". Haha, yes, I was young, so easily impressed. πŸ˜‰

The taste of the tea flavors I received from Flora Tea this time also impressed me. They left the choice over to me. My first preference was Lily Fairy because it's the star of their tea flower collection. It was awarded 3 stars at the Great Taste Awards. I can't help being curious by nature. Blame my dad and mum, they made me. You weren't expecting me to blame myself; I hope. 😳

The key ingredients from this tea are green tea, Jasmin, and Lily. As I opened the package, I already picked up a glorious scent, which only got better as the flower developed. πŸ˜‹

It's also an impressive tea flower to watch unfold, and boy did it taste good, like an angel crying on your tongue. It lingered on my pallet for quite a long time. Such a delicate, soft, but still very pronounced flavor. Definitely my favorite by far. 😍

My second choice was Oriental Beauty, which was also awarded at the Great Taste Awards, but then again all their tea flowers are. I made a small video of this one so you can enjoy the process with me. I created a new YouTube channel, especially to show you. πŸ˜ƒ

You can follow me if you like, who knows what I will publish next. Even I don't know. 😁

But you might be curious about what the key ingredients of this tea are. They are Green tea, Calendula, and Jasmine. 

I wasn't as wild about this tea as the Lily Fairy, because for me it was a bit weird, almost as if it had a hint of sweetness to it. This was easily solved though by adding some lemon juice to it. For all I know, you may adore this tea just because of its sweetness. 

My dad taught me that "de gustibus et coloribus non disputandum est." or otherwise said, "there is no disputing about tastes and colors." he only taught me 3 Latin phrases, but I love to use this one. It shows that I am not brainless or that I am a showoff or maybe both. 😲

Flora Tea also let me choose 2 flavors of their pyramids tea-bags. Even though I am not that much a fan, I wanted to give their mint tea a try. Nope, I am not crazy, ok maybe just a little, but my hubby drinks mint tea all the time so I hoped we could enjoy this one together. 😯

There was such a wonderful scent when I opened the package that made me even more curious about the tasting. Regretfully for him, the mint wasn't strong enough but strange enough I loved it just because of that. As I just told you, I am not the biggest fan of mint tea, but this was such a delicate flavor. Weird, right? 😏

Did you know peppermint tea can soothe the stomach or strengthen digestion? It also has a soothing effect and helps against headaches, skin irritation, worries, and menstrual pains. Peppermint relaxes the muscles in the intestines. Enough good reasons to give this tea a try. 😊

The last one I chose was the Japanese Sencha tea.

The first time I left the tea to infuse just a bit too long, which made it just a tiny bit bitter. As they say, a donkey never hits the same stone twice, so my second cup of tea was just perfect.  πŸ˜„

Did you know that Sencha is a Japanese green tea? The tea leaf is not rolled but crushed and steamed. The word "sencha" means "great tea". 

Just remember this, if you need a moment of rest in the day, some time to relax, a moment to unwind. Get yourself a wonderful tea flower from, and enjoy the wondrous spectacle of the emerging flower in your glass of tea. Within minutes, you have a beautiful flower in your glass. 😎

The people from Flora Tea were so nice to include a special offer for you. With the code SEADBEADY, you pay no shipping costs if you place an order before February 28.

  1. Its so pretty -- way to make morning tea a beautiful experience!

  2. Every day is tea month for me haha! Although I'm not very creative with my tea choice and only really drink your regular builders tea. But this looks lovely!

  3. Ik drink meestal kersenthee van Pickwick en moet wel even wennen aan deze thee constructies.

  4. een kop koffie in de ochtend en de rest thee. Maar dan gewoon heel standaard pickwick. Veel andere dingen geprobeerd, maar ik blijf redelijk gewon hierin

  5. Flower teas are my favorite but I barely ever tried them, never seen them in the store.

  6. Wow love the idea, usually evening is my tea time..

  7. Ik drink vooral veel rooibos en groene thee. Ook start ik altijd de dag met een Matcha latte. :-)

  8. Zelf drink ik meestal koffie, maar die theebloemen zijn wel een heel goed idee voor mijn dochter. Ziet er tof uit!

  9. Thee is echt lekker. Ik houd van munt thee en bosvruchten thee .

  10. Af en toe ben ik ook aan een rustmomentje toe. Ik ga de Flora thee in gedachten houden
