How to pamper yourself with an Exceptional Cup of Tea - Tea Flower from Flora Tea

Hi There..... Are you a tea drinker? Have you ever heard of a Tea Flower? Maybe you like to pamper yourself with an exceptional cup of tea?

I would be quite curious to know more about this tea flower for sure because I am an avid tea drinker. ๐Ÿ˜‹

Coffee is just not my cup of tea. Isn’t that a marvelous quote? I can’t quote the author because he seems to be unknown. The only one that used to drink coffee at home, when I was a kid, was my mum. My dad was a real Anglophile, he loved everything from Great Britain, including the English language. From all of Great Britain, Wales was his favorite destination.

My first visit to Wales was when I was 5. If I remember it properly, it was in a house we rented together with our Aunt (my dad’s youngest sister), Uncle, and Niece. I may have been just 5 but I remember very well my first English words were ‘push please’. No, no, I’m no pushover, or am I? ๐Ÿ˜ง

Perhaps someday I will tell you all about my trials and tribulations, just not today. All I wished was for them to push me on the swing in the house’s backyard. There were some local kids we used to play with, and they taught us our first English words. ๐Ÿ˜„

I have some fond memories of our visits to Welsh Castles, villages with authentic clothing from the Middle-Ages, and teahouses. What stuck most with me were the Welsh teahouses with their delicious scones and their very special glass of tea. If you come across one, just go inside, I bet you won’t regret it.

Can you understand my excitement when they accepted me to try out these amazing tea flowers from Flora Tea? ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

I bet you haven't heard of Tea Flowers either. They come in 10 different flavors at the moment and you can pair those tea flavors with the most beautiful glass.

Flora Tea bases their teas on green tea leaves. They say green tea reduces nausea, pain, stress, and it helps to speed up the metabolism. It also reduces the negative effects of our LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol) and increases the effect of HDL (good cholesterol). 

If you ask me, you can't go wrong with green tea. My first experiment was their 'Jasmine with Love' - Green tea and Jasmine - Not sure if it was good for me because I almost got high. Haha, no, it was just the scent of Jasmine that was incredibly hard to resist. Far out my favorite of the 3 teas they chose for me to taste. It's such a delicate taste, and I loved it. 


Even though the process of this flower unfolding was fairly simple in comparison with the other 2, it was by far the prettiest result, if you ask me. 

My second experiment was the 'Summer Love' - Green Tea, Carnation, and Osmanthus - it was fascinating to watch this flower open up. You could compare it to a fast-paced video of a blooming flower. Let me show you some pictures I took during the process. ๐Ÿ˜Š





Amazing, Isn't it? I would however recommend using more water than I did because mine was too strong first but nothing a bit of extra water couldn't fix. Rookie mistake, haha, we learn by trial and error. Hey, I never said I was perfect. ๐Ÿ˜ 

The tea was truly enjoyable too, and it lingered on my tongue for the longest time. 

The last one I got to try was their Flying Snow - Green Tea, Marigold, and Coconut Fruit Fiber - This one was amazing to watch too but I am sorry to say it was not my cup of tea. A bit too bitter for me, but just a hint of bitterness can be too much for me, so for all I know, this could be your favorite. 

If you are interested in tasting them you need to know that these products are exclusive and only available at Flora Tea. There are some other interesting facts too about this shop. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

The individual tea leaves are hand-tied with the selected dried aromatic flowers to form a ball. They only use the best tea leaves from the first harvest on the plantations in China and Japan. 

Their tea flowers won the Great Taste Awards, a prestigious gastronomic event held annually in the UK.

In recent years, the entire collection has been awarded, and some received the highest rating of 3 stars.

They also awarded them at The International Taste Institute in Brussels with the Superior Taste Award. 

Impressive, Isn't it?
