Butterfly Long for Flower ~ Goldfish

Today’s tea may have the most bizarre name of anything i’ve yet reviewed (apart from that one in multiple languages), though it will make sense in a minute. “Butterfly Long for Flower” almost sounds as if it could be an alternative reading of the hanzi for a Chinese girl’s name. I really don’t know enough Chinese to be able to tell you.

I understand the name better from the visual of the bulb opening and the tiny aster petals flitting about the periphery but never able to approach the flower. Soo cute~ xD I don’t know what aster is supposed to taste like, but the tiny mum-like petals end up causing a sweet, syrupy aftertaste (melded well with a bit of jasmine).  Not bad, but not stellar. Butterfly Long for Flower is strictly decorative, but i’m not sure i really care this time. The concept behind this tea is very Chinese and brilliant and adorable.
