Pretty Flower & Round Moon
A Mandarin idiom meaning 'perfect bliss', Pretty Flower & Round Moon is the perfect way to share happiness with others. Place one of these large pearls (or should we say 'moon'?) of green tea in a large, ideally glass, vessel, and it will slowly flower, releasing both its flavour and the flower petals carefully tied within. Indeed, these flowering teas are a marvel of very ephemeral handiwork: each tea leaf has been stitched together with petals by hand, designed to unfurl and be consumed. A wonderful treat for larger gatherings, whether flower watching during spring afternoon, moon gazing by night, or just to have a nice cup of tea.
For a subsequent surprise, pair with Oriental Beauty Flowering Tea.
