Flowering, or blooming, tea is made up of a handmade bundle of dried tealeaves (primarily white, unfermented, and dried) bound together with cotton thread into a tight ball. Once in contact with hot water, the leaves will slowly unfurl into a large blooming flower. With these blossoming teas, the challenge is to source leaves that meet the EU and Japanese standards for herbicides and pesticides. Due to the need to have long leaves that have the length and width for hand-sewing, the leaves need to be diligently inspected for standards. Consonant with our worldwide procurement Quality Control program, we ensure that the tea leaves meet the strictest regulatory standards, and at the same time retain their nuanced character and interest.
