How are Flowering/Blooming Teas Made? 

Flowering/blooming teas are typically made from the delicate buds of the tea plant; they are often made with white tea varietals, which have long, soft buds. The leaves are processed into tea, then moistened and shaped by hand. Using food-safe string, bundles of about 20 leaves are sewn into shape, often around one or more flowers. They may be wrapped in cloth while they dry -- this helps them hold their shape better.

How to Steep Flowering/Blooming Teas?

The whole idea behind flowering teas is enjoying their appearance, so a glass brewing vessel is the best choice. You can also use a large wine glass or a glass pitcher to brew your flowering tea. Although most green teas and white teas taste best when they are steeped in water that is below boiling, flowering teas have a less pronounced flavor, and are perfectly fine when steeped in boiling water. In fact, boiling water (or near-boiling water) can be better for helping flowering teas to "bloom".
