Flavor Profile:Delicate pollenal aroma with oceanic notes and a sweet, smooth taste.Ingredients:100% Organic Camellia sinensis Flowers.Certified Organic by:Quality Assurance International (QAI)
The tea plant (Camellia sinensis) flowers once a year in Fall. This is the time just before the plant produces seeds and goes into winter hibernation.

Yunnan Tea Flowers
These 100% organic tea flowers are from the southern Yunnan province of China and harvested from old growth tea trees indigenous to the area. The native peoples of this region are among the few tea-growing cultures with a history of tea flower harvesting.

Jing Mai Tea Forest
Jing Mai Mountain is home to one of the largest Old Growth Tea Forests in southern Yunnan. The area has been called a Tea Forest Museum with trees ranging from 800 to 1200 years old.

Similar to Puer teas, the tea flowers will age well and develop a richer, fuller taste.

Herbal teas with light, delicate blossoms or leaves require somewhat shorter steeping times and lower temperatures than other more hearty herbs. We recommend using 2 teaspoons of leaf per 8oz of near boiling water (180 to 200 F) and steeping 3 to 5 minutes. This provides a sweeter, better tasting brew while repeated infusions allow you to extract all the nutritional and medicinal benefits from the herb.

Herbal teas can be brewed in porcelain, ceramic, glass, or stainless steel but never in aluminum or other harmful materials. Be sure to cover the cup or teapot while steeping to prevent the loss of fragrant essential oils and other therapeutic and nutritional elements.

Camellia Tea Blossoms can also be enjoyed “Chinese style”. Merely place a few blossoms at the bottom of a cup or teapot, add hot water, and cover. After a couple minutes or so the flowers will infuse and sink to the bottom of the vessel allowing you to drink or pour from the top. When the water is down to just over the blossoms, simply add more water.
