The first time I had this tea the dry leaf mixture smelled JUST LIKE York Peppermint Patties! Post Infusion it smelled like Black Tea, Peppermint, Cream. I remembered this ‘brewed up’ quick and dark! It tasted like black tea, mint, and vanilla. I remember saying that I LOVED the out-of the-bag aroma better than the actual taste of the tea…but the more I sipped the more I enjoyed it!
The 2nd time I sampled this I found it to be much more memorable! Much more minty and creamy, too! I really like this! I mean really like this! Many of you know my love for minty things!
I still think this smells like a Peppermint Patty but I love the fact that I can taste the Black Tea, The Mint, The Creaminess…all in one! This is very aromatic, very bold, very flavorful, and very tasty.
I think I will have another cup today and many more days to come!

Royal Lily Bloom is a hand-tied white tea that blooms into a gorgeous gradation from muted-green white tea buds to delicate, canary-yellow chrysanthemum petals to a vibrant spray of blossoming crimson lily. This regal, sophisticated tea is a classic “flowering tea” or “blossoming tea” in terms of its appearance, but its flavor is no shrinking violet… Surprisingly full flavors of cocoa, malt, flowers, fruit and chestnuts set this tea bloom apart from other flowering teas.
Short infusions of Royal Lily Bloom are perfect with mild breakfast foods, mild Buddhist Chinese foods or mellow desserts. It can also steep longer over meals or at parties for a White-Peony-like aroma and deeper flavors of caramel, malt, apricots and chestnuts
I LOVE Flowering teas…the beauty, the art, the tradition…
I’m not the most patient person but flowering or blooming teas are certainly worth the wait! This one…Royal Lily Bloom Tea from thepuriTea is no exception! This is a real winner!
I did 3 infusions on this bloom! Here are my findings…
It was YUMMY! It was Sweet but still floral. Weird thing tho…the bloom…bloomed…but upsidedown! I tried to flip it gently several times and it just wouldn’t belly-up! Regardless is was a delight to my palate!
2nd infusion…was still good! It was Floral-sweet and even juicy. The aftertaste reminded me of Chestnuts…a sweet Chestnut more than a bitter-nutty Chestnut.
3rd infusion was semi-fruity and semi-floral and sweet. A bit sugar-like…and still VERY good!
Take TIME for this BLOOM…it’s WORTH it!
