As the leaves dance gently inside your glass teapot, blooming tea gives you movement, vibration and also powerful health benefits.
Mostly made with loose leaf green tea, this fragrant tea allows you to enjoy the amazing green tea health benefits along with a relaxing experience.
Tea buds, mostly from premium green tea, are handpicked in early spring, in the morning, before buds have a chance to open.
The leaves are then hand sewn with cotton thread and tied to flowers like jasmine, hibiscus, chrysanthemum or rose by skillful Chinese artisans in order to make rosettes.
While the leaves are still moist, they can be shaped into balls, mushrooms, cones or other shapes and then undergo drying, oxidation and firing.
Some of these flowering tea shapes can take a minute to sew while others may take up to 10 minutes, depending on the design the artisan wishes to create.
Chinese tradition says, blooming tea symbolizes long life and harmony, making it the perfect treat to enjoy with your family and friends.
The beauty of a Flowering Tea is an exquisite experience not only in flavour but also to behold.
To watch a blooming tea unfold its leaves and flower in your teapot will give you a sense of relaxation unlike any other.
