China green tea from the Anhui Province, hand-tied with amaranth and jasmine blossoms into the shape of a heart. Legend has it Longing Heart was created by an old Anhui province tea master in an effort to soothe the yearning of his heart when making the long trek to the markets of Beijing. He took the fresh young shoots of the finest bushes of his native Hunag Shan district and painstakingly tied them with amaranth and jasmine blossoms into an ancient symbol for the human heart, a pearl within a shell. Now when sitting around a fire on the market trail he could brew a pot of tea, watch the leaves unfold, and in his heart feel that he had never left his beloved home. Brew one heart in 190-degree water until the ball is open, about 5 minutes. One heart will make up to 3 cups of tea.
