Flora Teas

Flora Teas (short term for Flowering teas) is a brand of tea from London UK. Before I opened the box, I thought Flora Teas is just loose tea with flowers. I was wrong, but I got excited when I found out that Flora Tea actually is a blooming tea because brewing it is a feast for the eyes. It is not your typical type of tea as the tea leaves tied into a ball and inside it is a flower full of aroma.

I got this as a Christmas gift two years ago. But because of my hectic schedule and the growing number of teas that I have at home, I did not open it and I just saved it for later. It has also expired a couple of months ago but it did not stop me from brewing one.

To enjoy Flora Teas, I used a transparent teapot. A clear glass is alright as well as long as it is heat resistant. Place the tea ball in the teapot, then pour very hot or boiling water into the teapot and watch as the tea begins to bloom.

This is not my first time to brew and drink a blooming tea. However, I still get fascinated every time. Who wouldn’t be?

When it comes to taste, it does not taste like green tea. No hint of green tea taste at all. For me, it has a dried banana (lol. I know. I think my tastebuds were not working that time or it was because it had already expired.) leaf taste, plus the nutty aroma which is a common denominator in all the blooming teas that I’ve tried. The one that I brewed is called Flying Snow which consist of green tea, marigold and coconut fruit fibers.

I can say that Flora Tea has one of the best blooming teas in the market because it is good quality and most of all the tea ball does not turn upside down while brewing it. I find it annoying when the blooming tea turns upside down when it starts blooming. I want it perfect! 😂

Flora Tea is not just for tea enthusiasts like me but for everyone who would like to impress their lovers, friends, acquiantances or to just make tea time extraordinary.

  1. This tea is very common in China and other parts of Asia 🙂 If you order it in a tea house, they serve it to you in a glass teapot (as you did) and keep topping it up with hot water as long as you stay there.
