Blooming teas, also called artisan or flowering teas, actually “bloom” as they steep in hot water. The tightly wound bundle of tea leaves gently unfurl or “bloom” into a beautiful visual display revealing the flower. Blooming teas are enjoyed best when brewed in a glass teapot to show off the amazing display that transforms from a ball into a bloom. A large wine glass works well too. After two solid steepings, continue to savor the visual display for several days by simply replenishing with cold water every day.
