peace, love and tea!
The blooming teas are tightly tied, so water heated to boiling is essential for them to bloom properly. Put one Teaposy bloom in a heat resistant glass teapot with a relatively wide base, pour boiling hot water into the teapot, cover, and wait. It takes a minute or two for a Teaposy to bloom in boiling hot water; however, each one has a unique character, and some may take longer to bloom. If the water is not hot enough, it will also require more time and sometime may not open fully.
Once the tea has blossomed, it is ready to drink. Pour out the tea into a cup and enjoy. Leave the bloom in the teapot, and you can brew more teas with it.
Keep adding hot water gently into the pot, avoid pouring water directly on top of the already blossomed flower, but rather pour along the side of the pot. Flavor gradually increases as aroma decreases with each following cup. You may be surprised how many cups of tea one teaposy can offer you and your friends, especially when a warmer is also used.
You can make approximately 80 oz of tea out of 1 teaposy bloom. Silver needle teas are known to be slow-brewing teas. Your patience along with a tea warmer may bring you even more cups.
It is not required, although it is a nice way to stay cozy. Use a Teaposy warmer to warm your tea and to accentuate its flower power.
Yes. Iced Teaposy teas are surprisingly good and refreshing. Please try making some:
Make the tea as described above, then pour each pot of tea into a pitcher filled with ice. Do not forget that you can get ~80 oz or more of refreshing tea from a single Teaposy bloom.
We do not recommend leaving unfinished tea with leaves overnight. You may consider pouring the tea into a container, and save it in the refrigerator for iced tea, or warm it up the next time for hot tea.
The white blooming teas are made from fine silver needle white teas and lightly scented with fresh jasmine flowers. A sip of these remarkable teas reveals a subtle jasmine aroma and a lingering pure, sweet finish, but this is where the likenesses end. Each teaposy bloom is crafted with a different type of flower, infusing it with distinct qualities found only in nature.
The Medley Noir black blooming teas are made from unscented silver needle black teas, milder and smoother than a cup of English Breakfast, infused with different floral notes, and will never turn bitter.
Yes, you can keep your Teaposy blooming tea flower in a glass container with cold water to display and enjoy the blossom for a few more days. Avoid pouring water directly on top of the blossomed flower, but gently pour along the side of the container. This way your flower can stay as intact as possible. If you change water from time to time, the blossom may last for weeks.
Our teas are not decaffeinated. The white tea based blooming teas contain very low caffeine, as white teas are known to have the lowest caffeine content among all caffeinated teas or coffee drinks. A cup of white tea contains an average of 8-15mg caffeine while a cup of coffee provides 60-120mg. The Medley Noir teas have a caffeine content similar to that of other black teas.
It is worth noting that whereas the caffeine in coffee is absorbed rapidly into the body, thus stimulating an immediate increase in blood circulation and cardiovascular activity, the polyphenols in tea are thought to slow down the rate of absorption. The effects of the caffeine are felt more slowly but remain in the body longer, thus making tea a refreshing and revitalizing beverage.
All Teaposy blooming teas are made with Neither gluten Nor nut containing ingredients.
Blooming teas are fat free, protein free, carbohydrate free, and thus have no calories. They contain high levels of polyphenol, an antioxidant that has been proven to support many bodily functions.
Hand picked in spring, the outer leaves are plucked, leaving only the new buds to be used in the tea production process. They are withered and dried at a high temperature. This process completes the production of silver needle loose leaf teas.
The loose tea leaves are then sorted and tied with natural cotton threads to make tea bundles. Each bundle weighs the same and contains leaves of the same length. Herbal flowers are sewn into the bundles, shaped and then dried again at a high temperature to complete the handcrafting process.
The unscented blooming tea pods are wrapped in cheese cloths and then mixed with freshly picked jasmine flowers to go through a complicated scenting process.
They will be dried again at a high temperature, thus removing any remaining impurities. The final tea bulbs then undergo a UV light treatment and are vacuum-sealed immediately after that.
Watch the Teaposy farm and factory video to see part of the process.
Since 2005 Teaposy has been working directly with tea farms and factories. Our blooming teas are made with high grade of rare silver needle white tea leaves. Over 80% of our tea leaves are select spring harvest. We scent our teas only with natural jasmine flowers. No other flavoring is used. We submit the raw materials harvested and final finished products to reputable labs for testing and inspection to ensure our products meet world class standards.
We have also been audited by the CSCC (labor and safety consultation organization) to ensure that we are in compliance with the Costco Code of Conduct.

The advantage of using glassware to brew tea is that you can see the quality of the tea leaves and the color of the tea liquor. High quality tea leaves actually prefer glassware to show off their beauty. :-)
