A Blooming Cuppa
What should one endeavour to do for a blooming cup of tea!? It seems like A LOT for the type of blooming tea we are talking about - but boy is it worth it!
Our journey begins in the mountainous forests in the Fujian region of China, where the elevation is high, and the temperatures drop low! The perfect atmosphere to grow high-grade green tea which forms the base to our blooming flower teas. Harvested by hand by experienced tea pluckers, our green tea buds are meticulously assembled with dried flowers in a painstakingly intricate process of folding the leaves into bulbs that will appear to bloom when immersed in boiling water. Hand-tied by artists, each bulb features a range of delicate flowers, designs and scents; all boasting a long list of health benefits!
The Peony (Purple foil): This design features a full yellow peony flower that will bloom in front of your eyes! If you aren't impressed by the low key theatrics in your teapot, then perhaps you will be interested to know that this bulb can reduce anxiety and put your mind and body in a state of calm and relaxation.
The Carnation (Red foil): You will want to grab your camera for this one! Watch close as a full red carnation flower unfurls its form in your teapot, but hey we are not superficial and of course, beauty is skin deep! So let's look deeper - this bulb boasts benefits such as the elimination of toxins, enhancing metabolism and regulating blood circulation.
The Jasmine (Silver foil): Let's alleviate fatigues and promote better sleep and skin with this jasmine bulb of tea, but also let's not forget to make an Instagram because this one is a show stopper!
The Rose (Gold foil): Prepare yourself for a multi-sensory tea experience! This delicately aromatic and flavourful cup of tea is a treat for your senses, with many benefits to improve cardiovascular functions and maintain weight loss this one is a strict do-not-miss! The bloom is of course impressive!
The Chrysanthemum (Green foil): Oh! What a way to impress your dinner guests! This baby will have you climb up the social ranks just as high as the mountains it was harvested from. For a truly special blend and a relaxing after dinner tea, this blend is fragrant, tasty and beautiful!
The Mix (Blue): I'm going to leave this one for you to explore on your own. All you need to know is that this one features more than one flower and is super exciting to watch. Trust me...this one will change your life (okay may not your life but it will surely make you happy!)
That's six types of designs, each delivering a little magic to your tea time. If you are not a fan of the distinct flavour of green tea then feel free to add a drizzle of honey! Either way, you will want this in your life (and body).
