Free Leaf Green Tea Rosebud


In the convenience store by work I had a neat tea find. It is basically a flowering tea on a string. So you get the benefits of the beauty  these teas have with the convenience of a tea bag. It didn’t exactly bloom, it just sort of puffed up. Flowering teas are how I started my own tea journey so I have a special soft spot for me. That being said, they are never made out of very good quality tea since that would sort of be a waste. While not super great tasting (way more rose than green tea), it was worth it just for the sake of my co-workers’ reactions. I manage a pet boutique so it was compared to the various things that come out of dogs. We all had a good laugh and I got some tea out of it too. These are made by Teance. Their shop is Berkley, CA has long been on my list of must-see tea places.

  1. That's funny...I had never imagined that flowering teas of any kind could be found at a convenience store!

  2. You'd be surprised. A lot of stores in my area are trying to appear higher end so they are getting very decent tea bags like Mighty Leaf and Two Leaves and A Bud. Definately a plus for me :)

  3. I wish that mt local stores would carry tea sachets from those two stores. They make the only tea bags that I drink.
