Green tea is renowned for its clean, crisp flavour – and this is no exception. It complements the marigold, jasmine and lily perfectly, making a great tea that can be consumed at any time of day.
Of course, there are plenty of health benefits of green tea. It is known for helping the body to function better, as well as helping you stay youthful and healthy. There is also evidence to suggest that green tea has weight loss benefits, as well cutting the risks of many harmful diseases. The marigold flower, on the other hand, is a cleansing and detoxifying herb with anti-fungal, anti-viral and antibiotic properties. The flowers also have strong anti-inflammatory and healing capabilities. Meanwhile, lilies are used to calm the nervous system, as well as being useful in treating heart disease.
Hint: Remember that the smaller the teapot, the stronger the brew. We recommend using a teapot with a 600ml to 700ml capacity, preferably rounder in shape but tall enough to display the blooming tea. In a larger teapot, top up the water two to three times to produce a tea that is to your liking.
You can sweeten this tea with honey or sugar and it can be enjoyed as part of a light meal or on its own. It is best served hot, following dinner.
