Blooming Tea Instructions
Blooming Tea Instructions
Tea has been around for more than 5,000 years and will be around for much longer. There are four basic types of tea black, green, oolong and white tea. All tea comes from the same plant Camellia Sinensis a bush that is grown vertically for ease of harvesting. However, the “tree” grows in the wild up to 75 feet!
Research has shown that drinking 2 cups of tea everyday can reduce your risk of developing cancer by 50%, and heart disease is reduced as well. It also helps in reducing your bad cholesterol and strengthens teeth and bones. There is every good reason, from a health standpoint, to drink tea.
Blooming Tea is a combination of Flowers, Green and White Tea. There are many different combinations and they are all wonderful. The good news about the blooming tea instructions is that they all brew the same way.
Simply unwrap the blooming tea ball from its’ packaging; remove any glass infuser (used for brewing loose leaf teas) from the glass teapot, in order that the tea ball has sufficient space to expand; place the ball in the bottom of the glass teapot or glass tea mug – capable of handling boiling water; don’t unfurl the blooming tea ball or attempt to cut any of the cotton strings used in the manufacturing process (The teas and flowers are sewn together on purpose to make the concoction look like a flower); prepare the surface area, or table setting for the boiling water.
To brew blooming tea, use water that is boiling (212 degrees F or 100 degrees C). For the richest flavor, let it steep for 4 to 6 minutes. For a more mild flavor, steep tea ball for two to three minutes. If you brew blooming tea balls correctly, the tea leaves will unfurl slowly and wonderfully. Be patient, don’t stir, and wait until your brew is uniform in color and you will view a flower blooming before your eyes. Green Tea can be ruined by water that is too hot, and will lose its wonderful flavor. If you don’t use the right technique with the right type of tea, you may end up brewing yourself a cup of tannin rich and bitter over-brew.
Green tea has become quite popular lately, probably due to the sheer abundance of flavors readily available. The delicately floral jasmines and the Osmanthus infusions are heavenly. The combination of green tea and white Silver Needle teas used in the manufacturing of Blooming Teas is an absolute delight for those in the know. The tea world has changed for the better with the advent of tea blooms.
White tea, or Silver Needle is an option that is more delicate than green-tea, with even less caffeine. It is highly recommended for the good health benefits, especially for Women. Try to brew in water just below boiling, for three to four minutes. In general these should be brewed longer and a lower temperature than the green teas.
To brew the perfect cup of blooming flower tea, follow the Blooming Tea Instructions, then, take time out of your day and practice a little patience. Tea is not just something to just drink fast, but rather, it is a wonderful way to slow down day and enjoy your tea time. Savor the moment, and enjoy your tea with friends.
You can enjoy a magical cup of blooming tea to relax or invigorate at any time of the day!
