About Tea Flowers

Tea flowerA tea flower, photo by Kristian Frisk, Licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0.
Tea flowers are flowers of the tea plant, Camellia sinensis, used to brew tea. Tea flowers contain some caffeine, but generally less than the leaves. The tea plant generally blooms in autumn and winter, and thus there is a limited range of time in which these flowers can be harvested.

In contrast to the leaves of the tea plant, which are processed via different methods to yield the different classes of tea like green, white, black, and oolong, tea flowers are usually just dried.

Although technically, the minimal processing of tea flowers would make them most similar to and best classified with white tea, they are usually considered in a category of their own. Some companies, such as Upton Tea Imports, even list them as herbal teas, although at RateTea we list them, along with any drink made exclusively from the tea plant, as true tea.
