To watch for the first time, an artisan-crafted flowering tea unfurl in a glass tea pot, revealing the flower from within the bundle of tea leaves, is a moment never forgotten.
By most accounts, it’s a relatively recent addition to the world of tea. The Yunnan province of China is well known for its variety of flowering teas, from chrysanthemum, osmanthus, amaranth and rose buds amongst others, all hand-crafted in villages that have become renowned for their own special variety.
Beyond the beauty, the other most striking aspect is the glorious naming; Pillars of Jade, Sacred Heart and Thousand Year Red are amongst those that we’ve chosen. Guaranteed to be a dazzling conversation starter.
