Handcrafted blossom teas are an extraordinary and beautiful method of preparing very high quality tea. Following an age-old tradition, tea artisans bind Silver Needle White Tea leaves along with one or more flavorful, beautiful, and highly aromatic flowers, forming them into balls of different shapes. These balls are firm and hardy, so they may be carried along with a person individually or in bundles to be used anytime, anywhere. Since they are bound, you will never need a tea strainer or filter. When placed in hot water, these balls open up into magnificent blossoms, revealing both the tea needles and the perfect flowers hidden inside. It takes 4~5 minutes for the tea balls to open fully. Watching these tea balls bloom is almost a magical experience, as if you were right in front of a spring blossom inside a garden. The blossomed flowers, the aromatic scent, and the refreshing taste of tea leaves are pure joy for our senses. And best of all, they are as healthful as they are beautiful, providing all the benefits of premium white tea, the pinnacle of non-fermented, antioxidant-rich teas.
