Blooming tea (Flower tea) combines the flavor of flower and tea, meanwhile brings people a strong experience of its bright color. The choose of materials and the making methods of flower tea has greatly affected this special effect.

Tea Buds: The tea buds hug the flower in the middle. Those tea buds are made in complete process of producing green tea (picking,Guest Posting shaqing, rolling and drying).

 

Flowers: After picking, fresh flowers should be dehydrated (by natural air-dried and machine air-dried) before the next process. Besides, The flower must be picked in integrity, meanwhile in the best picking time. Thus the quality of flower tea products could be mostly guaranteed.

Blooming Tea Steeping Temperature and Time

 

The First Steep: For the first steep our focus is to let the blooming flower 'bloom' properly. As blooming teas are tightly bundled, it is essential to use water just below boiling point for them to properly bloom. It only takes a minute or 2 for a flowering tea to bloom and another 1 minute to fully unfurl. As soon as it reaches full bloom, it is ready to be poured over gently for your first cup of tea. The first steep will have a strong flavor with an intense aroma of the flowers that are used.

 

The Second/Third Steep: In contrary to what most first time blooming tea drinkers believe, this tea type can be more than once! Generally, flowering tea can be brewed up to 3 times, with changing flavors during every steep. So let's discuss how you can approach this after the first steep below.

 

Right after pouring out the first brew, you can refill the teapot directly to enjoy the view of the tea flower that has now opened up, while drinking the first cup. Another benefit of this is that the next pot is ready to be enjoyed as soon as you finish your first. Make sure however to avoid pouring water directly on top of an already-bloomed flower so as not to disrupt its elegance and beauty—pour water along the side of the glass teapot instead.

 

During this stage, you are actually more free to experiment with different temperatures and steeping times. The secret is to use the result of the first steep as a reference. If the first round was too strong, try a lower temperature or reduce the steeping time. If it was too light, then increase the steeping time.

 

The perfect cup of blooming tea all begins with clean, fresh water. To keep the unique nuances of your tea's flavor and aroma, it is best to avoid using tap water as it contains chlorine, fluoride, and other strong chemicals. Instead, use spring water or filtered water to achieve that perfectly brewed tea.

 

Flowering tea balls, or blooming tea balls, are made from tea leaves and edible flowers tied into a ball that opens upon brewing. The tea ball resembles a blossoming flower and can be enjoyed by using a clear glass or tea pot. These hand-crafted tea balls can be made at home, using flowers from your own garden, such as lilies, jasmine and various herbs. Flowering tea balls make excellent gifts that will surprise your loved ones and can be enjoyed together at a dinner party with friends.
