Flowering tea or blooming tea, made popular in China, consists of a bundle of dried tea leaves wrapped around one or more dried flowers. These are made by binding tea leaves and flowers together into a bulb, then setting them to dry. When steeped, the bundle expands and unfurls in a process that emulates a blooming flower, and the flowers inside emerge as the centerpiece.
Recently, we had the opportunity to work with Maya Luxurious Tea, a company who uses the old Chinese method as the face of their company. In four simple steps, and in 10 minutes time, you will see a beautiful flower that produces a taste that is as pleasing to the eye as it is to the mouth.
The products we shot are all being used for their website, E commerce, and other marketing materials.
