Handmade Blooming Tea
Using Silver Needle White Tea and flowers, it gives a mellow flavor. Great for drinking and displaying. (We usually drink them first then use them for display).
This type of tea is handcrafted by binding tea leaves and flowers together in a bulb and then it is left to dry. When this bundle of dry flowers and leaves is steeped in hot water, it expands – resulting in an elegant blooming flower. The blooming flowers in hot water are the ones that will capture the most attention.
Blooming tea is derived from the Fujian province of China. Most commonly used flowers in the flowering tea include lily, hibiscus, globe amaranth, jasmine, osmanthus, and chrysanthemum. Serve blooming tea in a glass container to see the beautiful flower unfurl in front of you. The teas are all hand-made according to the Chinese traditional stories.
Taste: When placed in boiling hot water, the leaves unfurl. This allows the drinker to revel in the taste of tea.
