Brew with fresh boiling water and infuse for 3 to 5 minutes
Lotus Tea is the product of the finest quality China Black Tea with one of the most beautiful flowers imaginable. Its elegance is all the more defined by blending it with Rose Petals, creating a delicate, floral flavour with slight malty hints.
We pack it fresh to order here at our Kent-based factory - our way of ensuring not only quality but also consistency with every cuppa brewed.
Cultural Significance of Lotus Flower Tea
Countries and societies across the world - particularly in the east - consider Lotus Flowers to be sacred. Buddhists see them as a symbol of fortune, having grown from muddy waters only to rise above the surface and flourish.
This plays into the notion of following the “middle way” - a life of neither attachment nor aversion - in order to achieve enlightenment.
The colour of the flowers, too, holds various meanings. If they are white, it suggests the purity of the mind and the spirit. If they are red, it refers to compassion and love.
A blue lotus flower is associated with common sense, which, in Buddhism, could be interpreted as someone having wisdom and logic to seek enlightenment in the first place. Then there are pink flowers, which represent the history of the Buddha.
Caffeine in Lotus Tea
Other kinds exist - each with its own meaning and significance. But while our Lotus Tea cannot provide you with an enlightened sense of self, it can, at least, offer an energy boost.
This is because of the Black Tea leaves contained in it, which have around 45-mg of caffeine per 8-oz cup. It is a win on all fronts, then, when it comes to our delicious, invigorating Lotus Blossom Tea.

Health Benefits of Lotus Tea
Would you believe that Lotus Leaf Tea has weight loss potential? Similar to its caffeine content, it is because of the Loose Black Tea leaves contained within, which boost the metabolism of fat cells.
This, in turn, enables the body to burn fat quicker and more efficiently - resulting, ultimately, in a smaller waistline. What’s not to like?
But that’s not all. Lotus Blossom Tea benefits also extend to improved heart health and reduced diabetes risks. The reason, for the most, is its abundance in vitamins, minerals and other antioxidants capable of combating free radicals in the body.
In other words, it works on a molecular level to support your life in small yet significant ways. Why not buy Lotus Tea today?
