The lotus is one of the most significant flowers of Asia and the East, symbolizing enlightenment, holiness, and perfection that springs forth from imperfection. It is revered from Egypt to Japan and holds the distinction of being the national flower of two countries: India and Vietnam. Almost every part of the Lotus plant has been historically used to make tea to calm the soul and refresh the spirit. The blossom in particular produces a syrup sweet liquor, completely free of caffeine. We highly recommend this tea if you’re looking for something to sip on before bedtime. Lotus flower tea is a sumptuous and unique alternative to the more common chamomile teas.
Each canister contains around thirty whole blossoms. To brew, pour in 500ml of water no hotter than 75 ° C into a small, pre-heated teapot. Immediately add one whole blossom, and wait no longer than sixty seconds to serve. Enjoy!
