The most drinkable of all green teas, with numerous claimed health and vitality attributes. Steeping times on flower teas is approximately 3 minutes. Teas ideally should be decanted or drunk after approximately 5 minutes to prevent over steeping and loss of floral flavours. Each flower can be steeped three times or more. To preserve the visual effect of the arrangement flower teas can be placed in glasses once steeped and filled with cold water to be stored as a table decoration!
