How To Make Flowering Tea

This flowering tea will bloom right before your eyes! Elegant and artful, delight your eyes and tastebuds with the beauty and flavors of this blooming tea.

Prep: 10 mins
Cook: 5 mins
Total: 15 mins


  • 4 cups water
  • 1 blooming tea ball
  • sugar, or sweetener, optional


  1. Remove the tea bloom from its sealed packaging and place the tea ball in an empty glass mug or glass teapot.

  2. Heat fresh filtered water to 180 degrees F.

  3. Place the tea flower pod in the bottom of the teapot or mug and pour hot water 3 to 4 inches above it to allow the flower to fully bloom.

  4. Watch the tea bloom unfurl from its tiny ball into a beautiful flower. This usually takes 3 to 10 minutes. Stir tea gently to even flavor before drinking.

  5. If using a tea pitcher or glass pot, simply pour tea directly into the mug and add sweetener if desired. If steeping flowering tea bloom in the mug, carefully remove the hot tea bloom and set aside.

  6. Serve and enjoy.

Recipe Notes

  • Keep in mind that boiling water for too long will deplete the water of oxygen necessary for flavor extraction.
  • Flowering tea can be used 2 to 3 more times.
