This beautiful flowering tea contains blooms of amaranth and nasturtium waiting to be discovered by a tea lover. The cup is intricate and colorful, with hints of peach and rose flavor. The finish delivers a pleasing astringency that lingers in the mouth like a fine wine.
This tea was named for a pair of 2000 year old mysterious mummies found along the ancient Silk Road. The mummies were dated back to the Han dynasty, and were dressed in brightly colored silk fabric. The mystery lies in the fact that the mummies were western Caucasians – Caucasians weren’t thought to have reached China until after the Han dynasty. Written history offers no explanation for the mummies existence.
To brew, place one flowering tea ball in a teapot, and add boiling water. Infuse until the ball is fully open (about 5 minutes). Be sure to use a strainer when pouring into your cup!
