How are Blooming Flower Teas Made?
Flowering/blooming teas are made from the delicate buds of the tea plant. Using food-safe string, about 20 tea leaves are sewn together with one or more flowers. Afterwards, they're wrapped in cloth while they dry to fix their round shape. The key to a delicious tea is to use freshly picked ingredients that are carefully dried.

How to Steep Flowering Teas?
The whole idea behind flowering teas is enjoying their appearance, so a transparent glass brewing vessel is the best choice. You can also use a large wine glass or a glass pitcher to brew your flowering tea. The most important thing is that the brewing vessel has enough height to fully let the flower tea unfurl.
To let the blooming tea unfurl in about 4 minutes, you can steep one ball at 100 ºC (212 ºF). For a smoother and less strong taste, you could also allow the water to cool down for 3 minutes and increase the steeping time to 6 minutes.
