Most flowering teas are beautiful to watch, but not enjoyable to drink. This one is both beautiful and delicious.
Tea Artisans take green tea leaves and painstakingly twist them around a folded pink amaranth flower, and when you pour hot water over it, the leaves unfurl and the flower blooms before your eyes.
This is my favorite flowering tea because the flower appears in less than a minute, and you don't have to oversteep your tea! The taste of the tea has a sweet tropical taste and is a high quality organic certified green tea. The leaves are good for multiple steepings, so you can keep refilling the teapot with hot water. Do not use a filter. Usually you place the bulb in a glass teapot or glass bowl so that you can best watch it bloom.
