For the most part, Floral teas are a blend of multiple teas along with a variety of flower petals. There are two major types of floral teas. The first type is known as “floral infusion,” which has only a few flower petals and can be steeped like any other tea. The second type is commonly referred to as “compressed floral teas” and contains freshly dried flowers (not just petals, but real dried flowers) that are then tightly compressed into cakes or bricks, which are then steeped in hot water.
The tradition of making floral teas began over 2,000 years ago in China. The idea was simple: to use flowers and plants with medicinal properties to make the tea more fragrant and flavorful. Because they take time to unfold, these teas are an excellent way to share an experience over a cup between friends and family. Our Floral Collection celebrates the mesmerizing effect of seeing flowers.
