Cups for making Flower Tea

Among Chinese tea, Using well-selected Fujian Silver Needles and dehydrated flowers (Gomphrena, Yellow Chrysanthemum, Jasmine, Lilies, Marigold and Carnation etc.) as material, the series of flower tea is carefully made with the combination of unique handicraft and modern technology.  The beverage looks light green and yellow, clear and bright. It has a fresh mellow fragrance and a sweet aftertaste, with light green tea dregs.  Because of the effects of tea flowers, it can refresh the brain, regain consciousness, remove heat and eliminate toxins.  While brewing, the flowers in tea are very charming and attractive, since they merge with the color, smell, taste, and shape of tea.  You can not only enjoy the delicacy of tea and mellowness of flowers, but also can appreciate the sense of beauty.

You can use cups or bottles to brew flowering tea.  It is particularly essential to choose a good container, which will directly determine whether the craft tea you make is of great appreciation or not.

Firstly, you should decide to choose the material of cups or bottles.  We suggest that you should choose glass materials rather than nontransparent ceramic or red porcelain materials.  Transparent containers are convenient to appreciate the craft tea.

Secondly, you should decide the shape and size of cups or bottles.  The shapes and sizes of containers are significant for making flowering blooming tea.

For the perfect result, the bottom of container you choose had best be arc-shaped and 9 centimeters in diameter, which can range from 8 centimeters to 10 centimeters.  If it is too small in diameter, craft tea cannot unfold well or cannot unfold at all, since craft tea will expand after absorbing water and it cannot make the expanded tea sink to the bottom. If the diameter is too small, the expanded tea could not sink to the bottom; if it is too large in diameter, the expanded tea will float around. Although craft tea can unfold, you cannot appreciate the sense of beauty well.

The height of container is dependent on that of flower tea you make.  If the flowering tea you make is not very high, such as Marigold Blossom Flower Tea, Royal Lily Flower Tea, the body of container should be about 12 centimeters high; if the flowering tea is relatively high, like Rising Steadily Flower Tea, True Love Flower Tea, the body of container should be about 15 centimeters high.
