Blooming teas from Exotic Teapot

Sculptor and artist Nadia Iliffe has bought the ancient Chinese art of display tea to the UK with the launch of Exotic Teapot.

Tea buds and flowers that have been hand-tied by artisans from China's Fujian province bloom into floral bouquets and green tea needles when steeped in hot water.

The tea blossoms are individually vacuum-sealed to stay fresh for up to 18 months and are available in resealable pouches of 24 blossoms.

The line-up includes brews such as Red Moon Pearl Display Tea (silver green tea needles encircling a red moon of globe amaranth), White Peony Tea, and Stimulating Rose Buds.

The company also sells gift sets that combine the teas with clear-glass teapots, glass cups and, with the luxury set, a bamboo serving box.
