Tea artisans created this flowering tea in its honor of the Yunnan province, 3 Flower Burst. The idea behind this tea is that as it brews, it unfolds and mimics the way the lush Yunnan countryside bursts open with color in the springtime. Smooth and satisfying green tea notes. The peach character of Osmanthus comes to the fore with hints of jasmine and lily.

The idea behind this tea is that as it brews, it unfolds and mimics the way the lush Yunnan countryside bursts open with color in the springtime. The tea is produced by tying Lily, Osmanthus and Jasmine blooms together with steamed full leaves of Yunnan green tea. As the tea dries, the flowers are held inside the way seeds are concealed in the damp earth. Drop the tea into a glass pitcher, infuse it and watch the miraculous bloom unfold. The cup, like springtime in Yunnan is bright, with a very full green taste layered with overtones of cut peach and layered undertones of jasmine and lily perfume. An absolutely wonderful tea!

Making an amazing cup of tea requires several things. High quality tea, filtered or freshly drawn cold water, correct water temperature, time of infusion, and filters/infusers. Unfiltered water or too hot of water can ruin the best of teas. Always use filtered or freshly drawn cold water. Any flavor from water treatments or heavy minerals such as lime or calcium can taint the water. Brew at the ideal temperature. Too hot of water can scorch the leaves and produce a bitter brew. If you find that the tea is still bitter following the recommended brewing temperature, try lowering the brew temperature another 5 to 10 degrees. Use infusers that allow the tea leaves to fully expand and has full contact with the water. Ditch the tea bags. Know the steeping time for your tea. Too long of steeping can make your tea bitter and undesirable. Too short of time will make a weak tea. Don’t make tea in the microwave.
We strongly recommend using filtered or freshly drawn cold water brought to a rolling boil when brewing all types of tea. Today’s water has been known to carry viruses, parasites and bacteria. Boiling the water will kill these elements and reduce the potential incidence of water-borne illness. Cool the water to the ideal brewing temperature before brewing.
