Set of 12 fabulous Blooming/Flowering Tea Balls, Organic, Artisanal Display Tea

Delicious silver needle green tea, lovingly wrapped and bound about a dried Jasmine flower. Steeped, the binding unravels, the Jasmine unfurls, petals emerge, and the flower gently blooms to reveal all its colour, form and fragrance.

You may not have heard of it before, you may have experienced it on your travels to Asia or it may be your favourite tea discovery to date. Whatever your relationship to flowering tea, it is the latest must-have in any tea lover’s collection. Most fitting, the history of flowering tea is mired in mystery. It is unknown when the first pot of flowering tea was brewed. One thing is certain though – it is a tea like no other.

This tea is the epitome of self-indulgence. It is a true treat for all the sense and appeals to those who love adventure and magic. Wonderfully aromatic, bright to the palate and stunning to observe, flowering teas recall their natural spring blooming, and, just as in nature, there is wide range of flowers and colours to enjoy.

As you unwrap the bulb, it is immediately apparent that a lot of delicate work has gone into its creation. Each individual bulb is carefully hand rolled. A sense of the outmost respect engulfs you as you hold the little ball of tea in your hand. You can feel the craftsmanship, the art, the culture and the history in your palm. You instinctively want to treat it with as much love and care as its creators.

As you pour hot water – 90° is recommended – the magic does not happen immediately. Staying true to its playful nature, the little bulb carefully unwraps itself – not revealing too much at first. It builds the suspension until, in one sudden and exciting move, it lets go of the flower inside which travels upwards in your tea pot like a soaring bird.

Rose bud and marigold is a particularly charming blend of tones, offsetting deep yellow and soft pink; lilies are most delightful in their structure and variety of tone; roselle is one for the romantics, offering a powerful and passionate red; and osmanthus is sunset gold and orange.

Once fully bloomed, the tea is ready to enjoy. But before doing so, it is worth taking an extra moment to take in the complete, eye-pleasing structure. What was initially little more than a ball of leafy green is now a stunningly assembled basket of flower and tea, evidently the work of a highly skilled tea artisan.

Delicious silver needle green tea, lovingly wrapped and bound about a dried Jasmine flower. Steeped, the binding unravels, the Jasmine unfurls, petals emerge, and the flower gently blooms to reveal all its colour, form and fragrance.
