Eli’s contribution to our Display Tea Week is a little more complex. It’s a three flower tea consisting of Jasmine, Osmanthus and Lily. I love lily, but it doesn’t tend to make a great tea. :/
There’s little more than no aroma on the liquor that i can detect. The tea pot smells like… some semi-industrial Chinese village’s marketplace? o.0;; I’m thinking that’s because Three Flower Burst Tea is being reviewed last and i brewed five of these Display Teas in one day. It actually tastes like half-part jasmine (and the caffeine content is so high i developed an instant migraine) and half-part osmanthus. Unfortunately, the lily isn’t something i can discern.
The flowering bulb has a huge osmanthus blossom and a chain of four yuri-chained lily buds. It’s very cute. Also the hand-tied leaves seem to unfurl better than most Display Teas.

Not bad for something that barely qualifies as tea in my mind.
