The flowers in this tea ball are strictly made up of Marigold, known as Jin Zhan Hua in Chinese. The full name of this blooming tea is Jin Zhan Yin Tan (金盏银坛) meaning Golden Cup and Silver Base. In Chinese culture, Jin Zhan Yin Tan is a sign of wealth and nobility, as such the emperors seal has a Jin Zhan Yin on it, originally painted all the way in the Qing Dynasty. The artistry of this bloom is shown in its wrapping of the vibrant marigold blossoms on a silver needle base, opening when infused like a naturally opening blossom!

It surprises many people new to tea to learn that green tea and black tea originate from the same exact plant species—Camellia sinensis. It’s ultimately the variety of tea plant and how the tea leaves are processed that defines how green tea becomes “green” and black tea becomes “black”.


Typically, green teas are brewed in short infusions at around 160 to 180 degrees. Don’t scorch your tea! If the water is too hot, especially for green tea, your tea will release more bitterness and astringency more quickly.


Using about 1 pod of tea per one five cup pot of water is a safe bet. 


Always start with fresh, pure, cold filtered water when you brewing tea. Spring water is the best. 


Cover your tea while it steeps to keep all the heat in the steeping vessel.


Most high-quality loose leaf white teas can be steeped multiple times.

Please, no more than 12 oz.
