Organic Camellia Flowers

Origin: Jiangxi Province

    Product Details

    The closest herbal tea to actual tea would have to be Camellia Flowers (Cha Hua, 茶花), the flowers of the tea plant itself. Although the infusion of tea flowers is nothing like the taste of any tea, the brew has a certain robust edge that calls to mind the rolling hills and terraces of tea gardens from southern China.

    These organic Camellia Flowers, or tea flowers, are a unique entry into the herbal panoply, and bring with them the barest trace of caffeine (one half of one percent by weight — even less when brewed than any decaffeinated tea) as well as the bracing flavor of sunlit slopes from the tranquil hills of Jiangxi.

    We fell in love with this tea the first time we tried it, and are pleased to add it to our offerings. It's the tea we drink right before bedtime because we can and it's the tea we reach for in the afternoon just because it's so good. If you like herbal teas such as chamomile and chrysanthemum, this is a tea you'll want to have on hand.

    Too woody

    This is the 6th type of tea I've purchased from LRCT and I loved the 1st 5. However, this really doesn't do it for me because it tastes a bit woody.

    Delicious tea; wonderful company

    This was my first order from The little red cup tea company. The order came timely and with a handwritten note from the owner (very nice touch). The tea = org carnellia flowers - is fresh. The price was good. I'd order again.
