Flowering Tea Ball - Orchid Oolong
Orchid Oolong Flowering Tea Ball
These artisan tea balls are fun. Not only do they make a great pot of tea, but they make a beautiful centerpiece as well that lasts up to a week, and makes for a great conversation piece.
The Orchid Oolong is made with Oolong tea leaves, amaranth leaf petals and nasturtium blossoms.
Yield: 1.5 litres of tea. Infuse with water not quite boiling - 180F. Leave the flower in the water until the ball is fully open. This takes around 5 minutes. Watch the leaves unfurl to reveal the hidden flower treasure.
Place the flowered tea ball in a glass container of cold water for a beautiful display.
