Flowering Tea 8 Pieces
Great Conversation Piece and Yummy Too!
Also known as Artisan Tea, these are hand-tied leaves of white and green tea. Would you like that job? Each “bulb” is hand crafted by artisans in China, using techniques handed down through the generations. The artists choose the leaves they will use, which are tied together to form different blooms. Several different varieties are included in each package, from jasmine and lavender to osmanthus and lily. A glass teapot or goblet is the best way to brew these drinkable works of art. Watch the “dance of the tea leaves” as they unfurl into a beautiful bloom. Drink the tea, and brew again. After three steepings, we use cold water with a splash of vinegar to preserve the blossom as a centerpiece for up to a week. (Please don’t drink the vinegar tea!)
