Healthy Tea Inspirations

Flowering teas are a combination of edible flowers and green or black tea leaves that have been formed into a bulb. The tea leaves and flowers are dried and shaped into balls and then sealed for freshness. To  rejuvenate them, simply place the ball in boiling water. The leaves unfurl and reveal the floral petals within causing it to look like a blooming flower. The tea leaves steep the water delivering a wonderful aroma and a flavor unparallel with traditional tea bags.

While all of this is very pretty, especially when viewed in a glass tea mug or teapot, the health benefits coupled with the delicious taste is why flowering teas are the latest rage in the health-food industry.

Green tea is a great source of antioxidants. Green tea leaves contain flavonoids and catechins which  have been scientifically proven to protect human cells from diseases and provide anti-aging qualities.

Other popular properties found in green tea are theanine which reduces stress, improves mood and can have a relaxing effect on the brain.

Add those in with the wonderful medicinal properties many flowers contain and you'll see why more and more people are buying Flowering teas for more than the taste.
