Jasmine Silver Heart has a wonderful romantic tale attached to the making of it, it is this; look up at the night sky and the constellation called Aquila (in China it is the Cowherd) and then to the Milky Way (in China it is the Silver River) in there is a star known as the Weaving Maid. The seventh daughter of the Mythical Jade Emperor was the weaving Maid. One day she caught sight of a passing Cowherd and fell in love, when he visited her, she would stop weaving and soon they forgot their work completely! The Jade Emperor become angry that they shirked their duties, and banished them to opposite sides of the Silver River. The Weaving Maid and the Cowherd were devastated so the Jade Emperor related a little and to soften the blow let them meet on the bridge over the Silver River for one night every year on the seventh day of the seventh month. This is by the Chinese calendar on August 2nd when these two stars do actually meet! So this tea bloom was created to represent the flowing stars of the Silver River. Green Tea leaves are woven with Jasmine around the flower of the Globe Amaranth. The Amaranth is a symbol of unending affection for the recipient. The heart shape of the blooming tea bulb simply adds to the romance with its stunning appearance and scents of Jasmine this is an exquisite experience.
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
