This Heart-shaped Blooming Tea ingot of Silver Needle White Tea, opens upon immersion in Boiling (212º F) water into a beautiful bouquet of Lily, Jasmine and Pink Globe Amaranth blossoms. The brewed tea has a lovely, delicate floral note, with the jasmine predominating, but with additional contributions from the Lily and the Amaranth.
This Tea is good for three or possibly more steepings - the second steep has a more pronounced floral flavor and aroma than the first steep, with the third being more subtle and delicate.
Whether you get additional steeps will depend on how large a pot you used and how long each of the first three steeps lasted. The shorter the initial three steeps, the more steeps you will get - but if you don't steep it long enough, the flavor will not come out properly.
Experimentation is the key to the proper brewing of Blooming Tea.
An excellent gift for weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, Valentine's Day and, of course, Mother's Day - among others.
