An artisan tea in the shape of a heart. Legend has it that it was created by an old Anhui Tea Master in an effor to soothe the yearning of his heart when making the long trek to the markets of Beijing. He took the fresh young shoots of the finest bushes of his native Huang Shan district and painstakingly tied them with Amaranth and Jasmine blossoms into an ancient symbol for the human heart, a pearl within a shell. This tea has a delectable hint of peach throughout.
Price per tea ball.
Ingredients: Green Tea, Amaranth and Jasmine blossoms
How they are created
- The tea is processed and dried as normal, then sorted to extract the longer leaves and pieces.
- The tea is then moistened so that the leaves can be bent and shaped without breaking.
- After carefully being formed into shape with the flower tightly secured inside, it is then expertly tied together ready to be used.
Brew your flowering tea ball by adding water just off the boil, approx. 90 degrees, preferably into a clear teapot, or large glass, and gently place the tea ball inside. The leaves will soften and you will see it flowering in a few minutes. Leave the ball for at least five minutes, pour and enjoy!
