Origin: Jiangxi Province
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.
Organically raised, the 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.

The Camellia flower tea is delicious! It is light and fragrant and smooth to drink. Reminds me of spring!
This tea is not only pretty, but a delicious way to put your mind at ease. Instead of reaching for a glass of wine I brew a cup of this tea after a stressful day at work. This tea tastes amazing and it does a great job of making me feel relaxed. The tea has a nice smooth taste and does not taste bitter. 100% recommend.
These pretty little flowers make a tea that feels delicate, with herbal notes.
