The Creation of Blooming Teas
Our blooming teas are made by the original inventors of blooming tea in Huangshan. The renowned late tea master Wang Fangsheng made tea for most of his life. He created blooming teas to do something new and different with green tea. He used a base of high quality early spring green tea buds and leaves for delicate sweetness. The young leaves are harvested from the local Di Shui Xiang tea cultivar in Anhui Province, a region also famous for its Huangshan Maofeng (Yellow Mountain) green tea. This Rose Jasmine blooming tea is one of more than 600 visually stunning designs he created since 1986. His son Wang Huizhou is a sixth-generation tea maker who has followed in his footsteps as an expert tea maker, and created 12 blooming designs of his own.

An Immersive Sensory Tea-Drinking Experience
The light brew is delicate and not overpowering, with a clean green tea flavor complemented by floral aromatics. The jasmine flowers help relax the nervous system while the rose promotes circulation. Blooming 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.
