I am captivated by the beauty of blooming teas.Some sort of awe I had as a child resurfaced in me as I watched these teas bloom inside the quaint teapot. Not many things bring me to awe anymore, and that really saddens me. I thank Teaposy for re awaking the wonder in me that I had forgotten was there.

I was so excited when I learned that I was chosen out of many to do a review on these! I was sent the Medley set to review, which includes six different teaposies. The lady fairy which is made up of jasmine and lily. The heart of love which contains rose and lily. The red song contains carnation. Jasmine and Calendula make up the Falling water. The berry flavored butterfly teaposy is made up of jasmine and amaranth. And last but not least the calendula contains well, calendula.
* Silver Needle White Tea
Only the finest tea from the Fujian province of China is used to create Teaposy blossoms. Silver Needle White Tea comes from the young buds of the tea plant and is the least processed of any tea, giving it a delicate flavor and making it rich in antioxidants. The tea is only harvested during peak seasons, with 80% harvested in the spring and 20% in the autumn. No matter when it is picked, all of the tea is processed and packaged within the same year, ensuring it can be enjoyed at the height of freshness.
* Caffeine Content
Our Teaposy blooming teas are not decaffeinated. However white tea contains the lowest level of caffeine among all caffeinated tea or coffee drinks. A cup of white tea contains an average of 8-15 milligrams of caffeine while a cup of coffee contains 60-120 milligrams.
* Individually Crafted
Every Teaposy is completely hand-crafted in the Fujian Province, from the tea fields to the final blooming work of art. First, the Silver Needle White Tea is harvested, dried, and withered for two hours at 212° to remove impurities. Then, it is sorted leaf by leaf and placed in bundles of equal length and weight. These tea bundles are then sewn together with jasmine, calendula, rose, lily, amaranth, camellia, chrysanthemum, or carnation flowers to form one of Teaposy’s 8 patented blooming tea designs.
* Naturally Infused with Jasmine
Teaposy never uses artificial jasmine oils to flavor the tea, rather, each teaposy is naturally and repeatedly infused with the scent and flavor of freshly picked jasmine flowers. The delicate white jasmine flowers are hand-picked at their the peak blooming time of 1pm. Then, they are mixed with teaposies for hours so they can naturally absorb the jasmine scent. This adds a subtle floral taste to the Silver Needle White Tea and creates an intoxicating bouquet.
* Hand-blown Glassware
Every piece of Teaposy glassware is created by hand, so no two are exactly alike. Designed to enhance the visual experience of the teaposy blossom, glass artists work meticulously to ensure maximum clarity and a spacious viewing area. The entire collection is adorned with Teaposy’s elegant logo, and several sizes and styles are available to fit any occasion.
