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.

These flowers are so fresh and delicious, plus organic! The flavor is pronounced, but subtle at the same time. I can't buy my tea anywhere else. I love this company. Really fast shipping too with a nice hand written note, you can tell this company really cares about giving their customers a high quality product and experience.
Easy to navigate website and ordering, excellent customer service and fast shipping. Camellia Flower tea is amazing.
I recently attended a lecture on tea where the tea expert said his favorite tea was just the flowers. This inspired me to plant 8 tea plants in my yard here in the USA. I have collected my blossoms and made tea. I agree with the tea expert, they make a wonderful brew. I bought flowers from Little Red Tea Cup tea company. In comparison the Chinese blossoms looked just like mine and were of the finest quality. I totally recommend Little Red Tea Cup tea company Camellia flowers. I will also suggest trying around 9 blossoms per cup. They are very powerful flowers.
Best wishes to all
and especially thank you to the Little Red Tea Cup tea company.
