About This Tea

These tea blooms were inspired by the Tengchong volcano! The story goes that one day, an artisan who lived near the volcano, felt a tremor and decided to appease the universal forces in order to save his life and business. Wisely, he worked with local plants, believing their roots in the region’s volcanic soil would lend power to his creation. He tied exceptional green tea leaves from one of Yunnan’s finest tea gardens with Amaranth, Hibiscus and Lavender blossoms. He believed that concealing the floral burst within the tea would spiritually represent his hope that the volcano’s lava would be forever trapped inside the mountain, since when the volcano has not erupted. This Tea Bloom is gift packaged in a light blue box with a leaflet explaining all about the Bloom – the stories behind the making – and how to brew. The blooms are individually heat sealed packaged so they can be used at different times. There is a total of three Blooms.

Brewing Notes
Place 1 ball in your teapot (ideally a clear glass for maximum visual effect) and add freshly boiled water that has cooled slightly to approx. 86C. Do not use boiling water as this may scald the leaves and prevent them from releasing all their flavour.
