True works of art, crafted teas are individually handsewn and are designed to blossom into a most extraordinary 'flower' once infused. TWG Tea’s Blooming Tea Flowers are a stunning and entertaining visual experience.
Crafted in China, tea flowers are composed of tea leaves sewn by hand in an artisanal manner into compact shapes the 'bloom' when infused at the bottom of a teacup or teapot.
Often blended with fragrant flowers, like jasmine, dragon lily, rose, and osmanthus, crafted teas are remarkably beautiful, as they slowly unfold into astonishing shapes. Like the flowers they resemble, these teas are elusive as they are aesthetic - an art form that appeals to all senses.
To infuse tea flowers, we recommend placing one tea flower per teapot in water heated to 85C/185F. Steep for 5 to 7 minutes, until the tea flower blooms.
