Flowering or blooming teas are handmade and sewn to produce the characteristic flower shape. Additional flowers such as globe amaranth, chrysanthemum, jasmine, lily, hibiscus, and osmanthus are added to the center to provide the color and shape.
It is thought that flowering teas date back to the Song Dynasty (960-1279 BCE) in the Yunnan province of China, however the exact origins are unknown.
