About Tea Flowers:

The tea plant (Camellia sinensis) flowers once a year in the fall, just before the plant produces seeds and goes into winter hibernation. Tea flowers can be made into a delicious, relaxing brew that is smooth and sweet. Similar to Puer teas, the tea flowers will age well and develop a richer, fuller taste.

These 100% organic tea flowers are from the southern Yunnan province of China and are harvested from old growth tea trees indigenous to the area. Jing Mai Mountain is home to one of the largest Old Growth Tea Forests in southern Yunnan. The area has been called a Tea Forest Museum with trees ranging from 800 to 1200 years old. The native peoples of this region are among the few tea-growing cultures with a history of tea flower harvesting.

Ingredients: 100% Organic Camellia sinensis flowers.
