Tea legend has it that the creator of Lovers 3 Flowers found a parallel between the idea that the flowers picked by the maiden could provide a glimmer of warmth in her heart the fact that his teas could do the same thing. Inspired, he picked the finest blooms of jasmine, amaranth and lavender, and tied them in with a delicate full leaf green tea. The tea he created was bright, with a bouquet of fresh cut flowers. The cup displayed a fresh grassiness punctuated with floral blooms and undertones of honey. He knew in an instant he had achieved the pinnacle of his life’s work. And you know what? We tend to agree with him. Get ready to be warmed on inside and out. An amazing tea  [ View more details ]

So often in life, love and beauty are coupled with sorrow and heartache. One of ancient China’s foremost poets, Tu-Fu, who lived from 712 –770 A.D. wrote extensively on the subject of life, sadness and the longevity of love. One of his poems in particular titled Alone in her Beauty highlights his thoughts on the subject. The poem, which served as the inspiration for this tea, is a love sonnet to a beautiful maiden from a smitten suitor. The suitor cares deeply for the maiden but feels that his love isn’t enough for her given a recent family tragedy. The suitor laments:

Who is lovelier than she? Yet she lives alone in an empty valley.
When trouble arose in the Kuan district, her brothers and close kin were killed


Understandably, the maiden is heartbroken…she has nothing left…or does she? Tu-Fu continues:

She picks a few flowers, no longer for her hair, and lets pine needles fall through her fingers.
And forgetting her thin silk sleeve and the cold, she leans in the sunset by a tall bamboo.


In the midst of her sorrow, the suitor notices that the maiden stops to pick a few flowers. This act symbolized hope for the intangible aspect of life that we are all searching for and that can carry us through even the deepest sorrow - the beauty of love.

Luxury Green Tea Amaranth Blossoms Jasmine Blossoms Lavender Blossoms Lily Blossoms    

Hot Tea Method

Place one ball in your teapot (ideally clear glass for maximum visual effect), and add boiling water. (Very hot or boiling water allows the ball to open, which allows you to see the art of tea better). Infuse until the ball is fully open, usually about 5 minutes. Watch the long leaves unfurl to reveal the hidden flower treasure. Note: Do not remove the leaves after infusing - contemplate life and enjoy a rare Chinese floral Tea. If you wish to have another cup of tea, simply pour more water on the leaves and infuse for another 1-3 minutes.

Iced Tea Method

Not generally consumed iced but if you do, (to make 1 qt/lt) Place 3 Lovers 3 Flower pods in a heat resistant pitcher. Add 1¼ cups freshly boiled water. Steep 5 min. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with ice water. Add steeped tea and fill with ice water. Garnish with 1 opened Lover 3 Flower pod and sweeten to taste.
