This is one of the best tasting flowering teas I have tasted. I have purchased this once for myself and then bought each of my sisters a package for Christmas. I'm not really big on fruit flavored teas, but this one.....I will buy it again for myself. The flower is quite pretty when it opens up. I found that every single one that I used opened up fully. I was able to reuse the flower balls twice (for a total of 3 times) and the second and third times that I brewed the same flower I got full flavor, I did let it steep a little longer each successive time that I reused the flower ball.
The flavor is really nice - no bitterness at all. A full flavored White tea with just enough peach flavor that you can taste the peachiness without it being overpowering. Some white teas are weakly flavored, but not this one. Some fruit flavored teas are insipid, but not this one. Just a nice flavor and a beautiful show as the flower opens up. It opens up slowly enough to really enjoy the flower as it reveals itself, but quick enough so you don't steep out all of the flavor on the first brewing.

I ordered this product to go with a Christmas present for my mother I had bought her a tea infusing teapot and needed to get her the blooming tea to go with it. I use this tea on a regular basis and it is a trusted brand for me. Just be warned although this is a gift size package it is quite small. This type of tea is quite expensive and the only reason I did not give it five stars was that I have yet to try the tea but the packaging is very nice and I think that my mom will enjoy it.
