Hand Tied Flowering teas are often made with the emphasis on how the tea looks with little concern for tea quality. Jing has selected exceptional green tea as a base to the floral scent and flavour of the flowers. Why not make it into the perfect gift - see our tea ware for a range of gorgeous glass teapots.

*Based on 1 bulb per serving, infused twice.

Appearance:

Dry Leaf: Neat, mushroom-shaped button of tightly drawn green tea buds.
Wet Leaf: An explosion of variegated green tea leaves out of the heart of which unfolds flame-coloured lily petals and bursts of osmanthus blossoms.
Liquor: Pale green with orange glints.

Aroma:

Dry Leaf: Soft, sweet, straw-like intrigue with hint of orchard fruit and leaf.
Liquor: Bright and peachy, enticing and rounded.

Taste: Warm, green-tea sappiness with the fruity sweetness apriocot and mango flavours.  There are also some peachy, toasty notes and a hint of umami.

  • A feast for the senses

    Everyone who tries this tea is blown away: from the visual appeal of it blossoming in the gong fu teapot, to the delicate apricot colour, aroma and flavour, every aspect of this tea is simply exquisite.

    Great tea for Jing's 250ml gongfu teapot, the bloom fits it perfectly. This tea has a little stronger taste than most flowering teas, it's not so gentle as for example jasmine blooms - it's also less clear (contains a large amout of pollen) - you might want to pour it through a strainer. Overall, it's a great tea if you prefer stronger blooms.
  • Flowering Osmanthus with fish cake

    I drunk it during a relaxing lunch with salad and baked salmon fish cakes. The rather marked taste of the fish was smoothened firstly by notes of green-tea and then by the sweet touch of Osmanthus. Brewed for 5-6 minutes in a classical glass teapot. Wonderful scent and wonderful unfolding of the flower as well. Not to be missed. Davide
