If you like to enjoy a beautiful display of colour while supping on a cup of health boosting green tea, our Premium Royal Lily Flowering Tea is the perfect choice. When the carefully prepared green tea buds are added to a glass tea pot, they unfurl to release the lily and marigold flowers inside to create an elegant underwater bouquet.
Our Premium Royal Lily Flowering Tea offers a calming cup with the sweet fragrance of flowers. The green carmellia simensis leaves used to create this WellTea are in the Fujian province of China. This region is revered by tea drinkers all over the world for the warm weather and high altitude which create perfect tea growing conditions.
Like all Green Teas, Premium Royal Lily Flowering Tea is popular for both its refreshing taste and health benefits. Some of the believed health improvements gained from green tea include reduced cholesterol, the absorption of fat tissue to aid in weight loss, clearer skin complexion, improved digestion and even alleviation of insomnia.
Our Premium Royal Lily Flowering Tea can be resteeped up to three times, enabling you to experience its flower scented aroma and health benefits many times over from a single hand wrapped green tea bud.
THE WATER TEMPERATURE
- The golden rule about water temperature is never use boiling water on the tea, whatever kind of tea you are making.
- Green Teas require water at 70°C and black teas require water at 85-90°C.
- These days you can get kettles which enable you to choose your water temperature.
THE AMOUNT OF TEA
- Custom dictates that 4 grams are sufficient for one cup. But the amount is partly a matter of preference.
- In the case of Assam tea, which is naturally very robust, you might want to reduce the strength and brew 3 grams instead of 4.
THE BREWING TIME
- This is a very important step in the art of tea-making. In fact, the brewing time varies depending on the type of tea. An over-brewed black tea will develop a bitter taste whilst an under-brewed white tea will be flat and insipid.
- Black teas are normally brewed for 2-3 minutes, green teas for 3 – 4 minutes. It is a good idea to check the brewing time before making the tea, because some teas need to be infused for very specific times: for example, Jade Pearl is left to infuse for 7 – 20 minutes, whilst Oolong tea will need 5 – 7 minutes for its bouquet to develop fully.
- Brewing is normally done with a lid on, so that the tea retains all its aromas.
