About the Chinese Flowering tea

Flower and Herbal Teas / Blooming tea balls

This category can also be called expanding flower tea, herbal infusions, or tisanes. Technically only the camellia sinensis is truly "tea", however for sake of ease we now use the term "tea" to imply all herbal infusions and tisanes. There is a deep and rich history of blending teas with flowers, herbs, and spices. For some it is the art of blending to create unique dynamic tastes, for others it is a more simple therapeutic experience. We present to you here, some of the most therapeutically valuable and flavorful teas from China and the surrounding regions. These can be an excellent addition to ones tea collection as many are caffeine free and perfect for an evening brew. To your health, and happiness!

Flowering tea or blooming tea consists of a bundle of dried tea leaves wrapped around one or more dried flowers. These are made by binding tea leaves and flowers together into a bulb, then setting them to dry. When steeped, the bundle expands and unfurls in a process that emulates a blooming flower, and the flowers inside emerge as the centerpiece. Typically they are sourced from the Yunnan province of China. Flowers commonly used in flowering teas include globe amaranth, chrysanthemum, jasmine, lily, hibiscus, and osmanthus.

Flowering tea in its current form was developed in China in the 1980s, and first became popular in Western countries in the early 2000s.Some sources state that the general concept of bundled tea leaves is several centuries old.

Flowering tea is generally served in containers made of glass or similar transparent materials so that the flowering effect can be seen. The bundles can usually be reused two or three times without the tea becoming bitter.
