Handcrafted to Bloom
Flowering Tea is a new tradition dating back 10 years. Chinese artisans sew freshly picked, moist tea leaves around various flowers with cotton thread. The leaves may also be scented with jasmine for a more floral flavor. These elaborate designs take up to 10 minutes to sew before undergoing a drying process. Once placed in a glass teapot, boiling water is required for the leaves to expand and flowers to unfurl.
Numi partners with Flowering Tea manufacturers who comply with Fair Labor standards. This guarantees that workers receive a fair wage and safe working conditions leading to an improved quality of life.
Leaves of Art
Flowering Tea is the most innovative art form in loose leaf tea, first pioneered by Numi in exclusive flavors and exotic designs. When steeped in hot water, these rare Leaves of Art slowly blossom into a bouquet of breathtaking shapes and exquisite flavors. True to our commitment to quality and sustainability, our Flowering Tea is made with organic tea leaves.
We invite you to experience the simple elegance of a true Tea transformation - elevating loose leaf tea to the next level: Art.
Requiring no tea bag or strainer, Flowering Tea is environmentally kind as well as easy to serve. Our glass teapots are ideal to observe the blooming petals.
- The Beginning:
Place one Flowering Tea in glass teapot.
- The Magic:
Bring water to a boil and pour over tea. Steep until the leaves have completely opened (3-4 minutes). Swirl tea to even the flavor before serving.
- The Pleasure:
After enjoying the first pot, Flowering Tea may be re-steeped 2-3 more times.
This teapot is hand-blown in China. We do not recommend placing it onto a stovetop, in a dishwasher or a microwave. The glass is lead-free, tempered to withstand boiling water and reinforced for durability.

A gr8 way to serve tea
I bought this teapot and some flowering tea for a friend who is a tea-head. I wanted to get her something unusual that she'd not have tried. She absolutely looooooved it. It's the perfect size (she says) and was a great price (from my end), and made a wonderful birthday gift. It was delivered well-packaged and in a timely manner along with some free samples and information from iHerb. Thanks muchly, M
