Numi Flowering Tea
Numi Flowering Tea: The Fusion of Art and Brew
In 1999, brother and sister team Ahmed and Reem Numi created the Numi Tea company to offer tea drinkers worldwide an innovative, exotic assortment of organic teas and tisanes.
Among the most recognized of offerings is their hallmark Numi flowering tea, which is produced in the southwestern Yunnan province of China. This flowering tea consists of a hand sewn tea bundle or rosette that is created from white tea buds, green tea leaves, and golden-tipped black tea.
When the rosette is steeped in hot water, it slowly blooms into a beautiful flower and creates a brew that is rich with flavor and beauty.
A glass teapot is used for steeping so the visual impact can be fully enjoyed.
To make the tea "art,", follow these steps.
The brew creates a variety of different flavors depending on the type of tea purchased – from delicate and sweet to savory and bold. Each rosette is typically priced just under $20US per rosette and is packaged in a dark mahagony box.
- Place the tea bundle in a durable glass teapot. Remove the strainer – it isn’t needed.
- Boil water and gently pour over the tea until the teapot is filled to the top.
- Steep for 2-3 minutes and watch the tea bundle transform into its own art form.
