Tea - Tea Culture

This next Chinese Flower Tea is once again from Tea Culture - there's at least 10 more varieties to go!

This one is called Good Fortune

Good Fortune

Good Fortune is made with green tea and contains tagetes flower - it's said to help boost the immune system.

Tagetes are part of the daisy family - you can see a resemblance to Marigolds.

The brew itself has a golden hue that matches the flowers. There's an initial sweet aroma but has quite a dry, savoury finish.

  2. Thanks Hilda - I think either a specialist tea store or perhaps a chinese grocer might be your best options. If not then there are reputable tea merchants on the internet where you'll be able to find them.
