Flowering teas, also called blooming teas, are a combination of tea leaves and various types of flowers such as Globe Amaranth, Marigold, Lily, Jasmine, Osmanthus and Carnation Flower, skillfully tied together into bundles that are painstakingly designed to unfurl into beautiful, artful shapes when brewed. Given this, they should be brewed directly in a tall clear glass or glass teapot, so you can enjoy both the taste and the artistic display.
