Since the sun is shining and the snow is beginning to melt here in Michigan, I decided to open up my Sunshine Rainbow Blooming Tea from Lu Lin. This tea comes in the form of a small green ball. It is green tea from the Fujian Province of China and is said to have floral flavors, which makes sense since it looks like a flower! This little ball of tea didn’t have much of a smell, just a hint of green tea aroma.
I put the tea ball into a clear tea pot full of steaming hot water and watched it like a hawk, not wanting to miss it opening up. I became a little anxious when nothing seemed to happen. After 2 or 3 minutes, like a sun peeking out from behind the clouds, the little ball began to open up, revealing a Globe Amaranth and a Marigold flower. It took about 5-6 minutes for this flower to fully bloom, and it was gorgeous! With the bright yellow and pink colors, it looked like spring-time in my tea pot. The colorful flower is like a lily as it floats atop the light green water. Assuming this tea is ready once the flower is fully bloomed, I poured myself a cup of this Sunshine Rainbow Tea, hoping it would taste as beautiful as it looked.
The tea does have a light, sweet, floral flavor. It also has grassy, vegetal notes. It’s not the type of tea that will amaze you flavor-wise but it is a nice, simple taste that is easy to enjoy. The flowers not only look pretty but have some health benefits. The globe amaranth is beneficial for asthma or coughs and the marigold has detoxifying properties. This tea is also light in caffeine, making it a good afternoon tea.
