China Tea Flowers

Product Description

Details

The tea plant (Camellia sinensis) flowers once a year in fall before the plant produces seeds and goes into winter hibernation. These blossoms are harvested from old growth tea trees indigenous to the southern Yunnan Province. Though not as floral as jasmine or rose, tea flowers have a delicate pollen aroma with shades of honeydew melon and a sweet, smooth taste. Similar to pu-er, tea flowers will age well and develop a richer, fuller taste.

Steep Time: 2-3 min
Water Temp: 200°-212°
TSP per 8 oz.: 1
Infusions: 1

CERAMIC TPOT-Banko Tsubo -8oz
The charcoal Ceramic 8 oz. Banko Tsubo Teapot is a kyusu-style Japanese teapot, meaning its principle is to steep Japanese green teas, as they require cooler water temperatures (between 140º to 180º). The Ceramic 8 oz. Banko Tsubo Teapot features a slight shimmer, making this teapot as radiant as Japanese green tea. See paragraph below for information on the traditional Japanese steeping process. Spec’s: Material: Ceramic Size: 3.2”H, 3.2”Diameter Volume: 8 oz. Color: Charcoal About the traditional Japanese steeping process: Water is boiled in a tetsubin, then transferred to a yuzamashi, which decreases the temperature of the water by 15º to 20º (185º-190º). The water is then poured into a kyusu, dropping the temperature by another 15º to 20º (165º-175º), at which point the water is primed to steep quality Japanese green teas.
