As every tea drinker knows, Yunnan is famous for growing fantastic tea. Yunnan is the southernmost province in the People’s Republic of China and also the country’s largest producer of flowers. So it seems only natural that given the prominence of the local floral industry, tea artisans would create a tea in its honor 3 Flower Burst.
The idea behind the 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.
Makes a perfect gift for mother’s Day - an absolutely wonderful tea!
Reminder: Mother's Day is Sunday May 14th
