Description

Venus Flower Flowering Tea is intricately made by hand soon after the green tea leaves are harvested. These are wrapped, with cotton thread, around delicate chrysanthemum flowers and petals. The reason for this is twofold: firstly to enable the green tea leaves to absorb the delightful aroma of flowers and secondly to provide a magnificent display when the tea is brewed.

This magnificent artisan tea could be described as nature’s Ying to the Venus flytrap’s Yang. Once unfurled, the intricately created tea bud creates a beautiful floral display in a glass teapot, to reflect nature’s beauty, rather than its more savage side.

Green Tea Flowers Venus is supplied in the form of a small bulb. When this is added to a glass filled with near boiling water it slowly unfurls to release the beautiful flowers and petals hidden inside. This is a wondrous display to watch, as though an underwater bouquet of flowers is being formed before your eyes.

Venus Flower Flowering Green Tea is best shared with friends, both so they can share in the elegant floral display but also to share its delightfully refreshing taste and wonderful aroma.

BREWING INSTRUCTION:

 

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.

  1. Tara G

    I loved the tea! First, it is delicious. It is so much fun to watch the flower start to bloom! I could not imagine what really happens. It blooms right in front of you. It is a beautiful thing to watch! I highly recommend this to everyone!

  2. Kris

    It takes about 5 minutes for most of the flowers to fully ‘bloom’ and it’s fascinating to watch them! The tea flavours tried so far are very good and satisfying, too.
    I recommend highly! Great for gifts!
