SNOW LOTUS | Blooming | Green Tea | Wholesale
Extremely rare and precious, the Snow Lotus flower blooms in one of the most remote environments in the world- above the snowline of the highest peaks of the Tibetan Himalayas, 3 miles above sea level, just once every 5 years.
It is one of the “three treasures of Tibetan herbalism”, alongside Cordyceps & Rhodiola. Purifying & beautifying, it is an adaptogen that replenishes the Yin & strengthens the Yang. It is also highly prized, for many centuries already, by empresses of imperial courts as a profound beauty tonic, largely due to the way that it detoxifies the body, particularly the skin.
This classic artisan display tea, also known as Flowering Tea, is made up of premium green tea leaves individually handwoven around Snow Lotus flowers creating a fragrant blossoming flower with delicate flavor & floral aroma that is easy to drink all day.
Production is an arduous process where tender green tea leaves are sized, grouped together, folded down, and hand-tied to create a ball. Flowers are then carefully threaded through. It is and painstaking work, done with precision and skill, and the results are breathtaking.
Not only a wonderful drink but an elegant work of art as well.
Best brewed in a glass vessel to watch and appreciate the meticulous work, skill, & time, that goes into producing this variety.
Tip: After you are done with the blooming tea, you can take out the bloom carefully and place it in a big glass cup with cool water to display and enjoy the bloom flower shape for a few more days.

- If you like your tea brewed stronger or weaker, adjust the amount of tea leaves than what the brewing directions call for. Brewing your tea too long can extract an undesirable bitterness from the leaves
- Loose leaf tea can typically be steeped multiple times. However, each steeping will yield a slightly lighter flavor than the previous.
- To brew in a large teapot, increase the amount of loose leaf tea to match the total cups of water you’re using.
