Description

This is the perfect tea for warming your body and your heart in style on a cold wintry day or evening. Carefully prepared from the finest Huangshan Maofeng green tea leaves and wintersweet flowers, when the bulb of Wintersweet Blooming Flowering Green Tea is added to a glass with hot water you are rewarded with the wonderful display of the leaf opening up to release the petals inside. It’s like watching a beautiful snow globe of white lotus flowers emerge in your glass.

Our Wintersweet Blooming Flowering Green Tea Tea is supplied in the form of a bulb, which you simply add to a glass on its own. The manner in which it’s prepared ensures that the aroma and taste is kept enclosed along with the flowers, just waiting to be released and enjoyed.

Whether to warm your heart and mind on a breezy wintry evening or to create a sense of occasion to be shared with friends, a glass of Wintersweet Blooming Flower Tea is a rich experience for all the senses.

As the name suggests, Wintersweet Blooming Flower Tea has a floral aroma, which is both inviting and refreshing, with a calming taste that is both mellow and complex. What’s more, like other green teas, Wintersweet Blooming Flower Tea has antioxidant properties offering many health benefits for digestion, the heart and the mind.

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.

    My friend was having a hard time with the COVID-19 quarantine so I decided to send her some tea. I also wanted to give a unique gift. It arrived and she opened it and brewed a cup immediately! she loved it! I’m so happy that it brought a smile to her face.

  3. Natasha

    This arrived even sooner than expected!!!! I gave them to my brother as a stocking stuffer to go with his teapot (manly teapot) and we got to watch him test one out! It was BEAUTIFUL!!! He loves them! I am happy to have given them to him!

  4. Teplova

    I bought this as a gift for my mother. She enjoyed it. She said the flavours are amazing. I would purchase again in a heartbeat.

  5. LARSON

    I have only tried one of them so far, but it worked great and tastes great! If you already know you like green tea, then buy with confidence. A few of the flower petals came loose when it bloomed, but they floated to the top so I just scooped them out.

  6. Swindler

    Premium level blooming teas shipped instantly and look great. Taste is nice and mellow, I just keep thinking about how they make these damn things. Can’t be easy!?
