Ah, the enigmatic flowering or “blooming” tea. While the tea has become popular in recent years, the information surrounding its creation and inception is somewhat nebulous. As with many teas, experts in the field seem to have varying opinions on how the tea is best processed, brewed and enjoyed. Likewise, there’s a healthy debate over whether the tea has been around since ancient China or if it’s an invention of the 1980s. One thing is for certain; the tea sure is pretty when it blooms.
