WHAT IT IS Tea drinking is not only about enjoying a healthy, tasty and aromatic beverage – it is also about appreciating its aesthetic beauty. Blooming tea is a gorgeous example. Designed to be a beautiful visual experience, these hand-woven bundles of tea leaves and flower petals “bloom” into gorgeous flowers once brewed. Traditionally blooming teas are brewed in transparent glass teapots to better appreciate their beauty.
To enjoy a blooming tea, fill a glass teapot completely with boiling water and gently drop a dry tea bundle into the teapot. Watch as the beautiful flower unfolds. To better mix the flavors, gently swirl the water in the teapot before serving.
This Double Happiness Blooming Tea consists of Green and White Silver Needle tea leaves bundled with two Globe Amaranth flowers and Marigold flower petals.
FLAVOR NOTES The basis of this sutble floral bouquet is a blend of high quality green and white tea. Hints of Marigold and Globe Amaranth add to the delicate balance of flavors.
BACKGROUND To make each Double Happiness Blooming Tea bundle, specially trained tea artists start with two naturally dried Globe Amaranth flowers – which they tie together with Marigold flower petals, using an unbleached organic cotton thread. They then finish with a bouquet of young Green and Silver Needle White Tea leaves. It takes up to 10 minutes to make each bundle, which, when brewed, unfurls into a stunning flower arrangement.
