Arrow Why we like it

A few years ago, Roman met a family of Kunming tea traders. He made friends with them and would often spend hours at their shop trying out new teas and talking about tea and life. One day he asked what kind of tea they liked the most. The man sad he liked higher quality sheng pu’er (see Silver Trip). The woman smiled and pointed to a small ceramic jar from a shelf. She said that the mix of three flowers inside was her favorite. We gave it a try and thought that it would be a good idea to make Flower Trip part of our collection. The chrysanthemum in the mix tastes a bit like chamomile, the rose blossoms add a tinge of pink to the beverage and cover the slight bitterness of the honeysuckle.

Making your cup of tea

The flowers can be steeped in a tea pot, gaiwan, or a strainer placed right in your cup. Feel free to experiment with time, temperature, and quantity.

The purpose of the first brew is to rinse the flowers slightly, so it shouldn’t last more than five seconds and is to be discarded. Pour the hot water again (90 °C). This time let it steep for up to three minutes, allowing it to brew thoroughly. Increase the steeping time slightly with each following brew to maintain the same level of taste and fragrance.

If used properly, four grams of Flower Trip can yield three to four middle-size cups of excellent beverage.

This is a herbal infusion, so adding milk is not recommended. Feel free, however, to add honey, lemon, cinnamon, etc. It can also be used as a base beverage for iced tea.

Packaging and storage

Each resealable bag of Daoli Flower Trip contains 80 grams of tea. It should be stored in a cool and dry place. The expiry date is stamped on the bag.
