***EDIT: I got a lovely message from the shop, thanking me and saying they're going to start posting instructions in tea listings. How is it possible for a tea/spice company *not* to include instructions on how to brew their tea?? I was asking myself "do I put the tea ball in the pot first, or drop it in? Should I start with a small amount of water before adding more? How much water, how long should I brew, etc...?" NOT A WORD ANYWHERE in the packaging. Then I thought, maybe it's in the product description? NOPE. So I had to do my own search on how to brew flowering tea. Including brewing instructions is not only commonplace when purchasing virtually ANY tea, it's helpful knowing a brand's recommendations for brewing their specific tea.

The tea was shipped out within a very days and packaged to prevent the buds from arriving smashed. The tea flowers into a really pretty blossom and makes for a very light tasting tea.
