After reading info and lot of details about blooming tea, I started brewing it. I used a clear glass but seems it is better to use a tea pot with much space to bloom the flower. I feel like the glass I used doesn’t give much space.
Honestly, it took around 20-25 minutes to open the flower completely. But before the flower opened and fully brewed, I could see the nice brownish colour of tea.
The taste was good. Smooth and mild on my mouth. It gave some good aroma and specially I like the experience of watching how this tea ball opened up until I see a small flower inside.
Above is a photo of tea once fully bloomed. Can you see the reddish flower? My photo is not very clear. This time I forgot to focus on photographs and instead I enjoyed and watched how this tea was blooming.
