Our handcrafted blooming teas are teas that literally bloom as they infuse. These blooms are a combination of white tea and various flowers. They start out as white tea and our tea company uses highly skilled women who take the delicate white tea leaves and combine them with dried flowers such as Jasmine, Lily, Amaranth and Marigolds to produce wonderful tea balls. This process is all carried out by hand and very labour intensive.
How do they work?
During the process of gathering the white tea leaves together and binding them with the dried flowers, small pockets of air are left. When the blooms are placed in hot water to infuse, the air in the spaces expands forcing the bloom to open.
