INFORMATION:

Legend has it that around the turn of the century, a tea trader visiting China from America brought with him a Tiffany Lamp as a gift for the owner of the plantation he was visiting. His host was delighted and displayed the lamp prominently in the front window of his home, making it visible to everyone who passed. One evening while walking home, one of the plantation's artisans became mesmerized by the beauty of the lamp and was so inspired by the colors emanating from it that he decided to create something of his own. He took a handful of the finest processed leaves he could find, plucked a few fresh rose buds from the bushes growing alongside of his house and proceeded to painstakingly tie them together using a bit of string. The shape he created was meant to evoke the shape of the lamp with a base supporting a luscious and delicate flower. The result was nothing short of a masterpiece.

In order to fully experience the beauty of this tea, it is essential that it be brewed in a clear glass container. Upon infusing, the tea will float at the top and begin releasing air that will eventually see it gently sink to the bottom and open up to reveal its fragrant bloom. On the nose the aroma of freshly cut roses comes to the fore. The cup also yields notes of rose perfume followed by hints of grassy green tea.


HOT BREWING METHOD:
Place 1 blooming tea ball into a 3-4 cup glass teapot and add freshly boiled water. Allow the tea to brew for at least 5 minutes. Initially the tea ball will float but as it loses the trapped air during the steeping process it will sink if you have used boiling water. Once the tea ball has opened to its full potential the tea can be consumed.
