The tea leaves used in Autumn Lover Flowering Tea are mao feng green leaves, grown on the idyllic tea plantations of Fuding. Located in the Fujian province, which is famous among tea lovers across the globe, the tea leaves are grown in 1840 hours of sunshine every year and average temperatures of 18.5 degrees celsius. These growing conditions help to create this special type of green WellTea, which is rich in taste and health benefits.
After it’s harvested, the mao feng green tea leaves are wrapped around lily and jasmine flowers and then sewn by hand by skilled tea artisans. This creates the small bud like packages which are added to boiled water and unfurl on their own to create a beautiful underwater bouquet for you to enjoy while waiting for this highly fragrant and refreshing WellTea to brew.
If autumn is your favourite time of year, this is the perfect WellTea for you. After the bud is added to a teapot of boiled water it unfurls to release the petals of lily and jasmine and green tea leaves to create a display rich in autumn hues and colours.
To witness this wonderful display, it’s recommended to have a big clear glass teapot in order to enjoy Autumn Lover Flowering Tea in all its glory.
