Where Flavor Blossoms

Numi Tea Flowering Tea Dancing Leaves Teapot

Display or flowering teas add a lovely ceremonial and esthetic touch to the tea drinking experience. This thoughtful assortment showcases five florid tea bundles — three whites, one green and one black. For a light and mellow taste, choose one of the refreshing white teas — Flower Jewel has a sweet jasmine scent with a clear, fresh flavor; Starlight Rose provides a smooth, mellow taste and rose aroma; and Dragon Lily tastes of apricots and has a sweet, velvety finish. For brisk and earthy, Emerald Sun combines fresh green tea taste and floral sweetness with a mellow and nutty flavor. Finally, for something with a little more of a kick, golden-tipped black tea leaves, a sweet jasmine scent and hints of chocolate comprise the strong Golden Jasmine flowering tea blossom.

These premium tea buds are hand-picked in the early morning and hand-sewn with cotton threads into bundles or rosettes by artisans throughout China. They can be steeped two or three times for continued enjoyment.

The gift set includes the charming 14 oz. glass "Teahouse" teapot to showcase the blossoms.

Price: Five blossoms with teapot, $25

Recommended steeping time: 2-3 minutes
