This sampler is a great way to try both of our two blooming display teas. These teas slowly unfurl tea leaves like the petals of an opening flower when placed in hot water. The Rose Jasmine reveals a floating double chain of jasmine flowers crowned with a young rosebud in the center, while the Chrysanthemum Green releases a floating column of three large white chrysanthemum flowers topped with a piece of tong xin cao herb. Includes decorative paper gift box and one individually packaged piece of each tea. Each tea can be re-infused multiple times.

The Creation of Display Teas

Our display teas are made by the original inventor of display tea, the tea master Wang Fang Sheng, who has been making tea for most of his life. Display teas were created to do something new and different with green tea. He uses a base of high quality early spring green tea buds and leaves for delicate sweetness. The young leaves are harvested from the local Dishuixiang tea cultivar in Anhui Province, a region also famous for its Huang Shan Mao Feng (Yellow Mountain) green tea. This Rose Jasmine blooming tea is one of more than 600 visually stunning designs he has created since 1986. His son Wang Hui Zhou is a sixth-generation tea maker who has created 12 display designs of his own.

An Immersive Sensory Tea-Drinking Experience

The combination of the high end green tea with floral herbals makes for a light and beautifully balanced blend. Display teas are especially beautiful when brewed in glassware that affords the drinker a full view of the slowly blooming tea sculpture. The visuals, aromatics, flavors, and sensations while enjoying this tea create an immersive full sensory experience.

No chemical fertilizer, pesticide, or herbicide was used in the production of this tea. Click here to read more about our promise to fair trade and the environment.
