When it comes to the unique world of Tea, none are quite like Flowering Tea. It takes “unique” to the next level as your Tea quite literally unfurls before your eyes. No gimmicks - it is exactly as it sounds.
Flowering Tea, also known as “Treasure Tea” or “Blooming Tea”, is a carefully handmade creation whereby dried flowers are placed within a delicate layer of sewn Green and/or White Tea. Typically stylised into ball-shapes, these Loose Leaf Teas, when placed in hot water, unfold while showcasing the beautiful flower lying within.
Either lilies, jasmine flowers or chrysanthemums are used in the making of Flowering Tea. These truly fascinating Teas originated in the Fujian province of China, where they are still often made today. In fact, a single experienced worker can make up to 400 Flowering Teas a day.
To best enjoy a Flowering Tea, a glass vessel is required so one can witness its true majesty. Watch as the Tea expands, then enjoy the extraordinary flavours it boasts in cup. And like all types of Tea, Flowering Tea can offer health benefits when consumed as part of an already healthy and active lifestyle.
In fact, both White and Green Flowering Teas contain an abundance of beneficial antioxidants, which can combat free radicals in the body. Providing one eats healthily and exercises frequently, the consumption of almost any Flowering Tea can boost the metabolism, improve cardiovascular health and even reduce the risks of developing type-2 diabetes.
