A unique experience!
This tea is bound in a sphere form (tea sphere). Only a few master binders in China have the knowledge to tied our AbloomTea into these unique appearances of art therefore AbloomTea is a rarity. Within the Abloom-Tea Sphere there is a naturally bound blossom which comprises different forms and colours.
The Abloom-Tea Sphere unfolds its secret when it is put into a glass carafe of boiling water. Only then does it begin to open and produce the embedded blossom at the end of the infusion ceremony, making it rise majestically.
The Abloom Tea is made from fine white tea (Bai Hao Yin Zhen, Silverneedle) from the high mountainous regions of China's Fujian province. The tea carries its name because only the buds with the protective silvery down are used for the manufacturing process. The buds of the leaves in a long and rolled form glimmer in a silvery white and protect the unopened leaf. Therefore it can retain its valuable nutrients.
The popular first picking of the White Tea is carried out in the new Beginning of spring. The right weather and the right time of the day are essential for the quality of the harvest. The taste of white tea is light and sweet with an unmistakable fruity aroma.
