Beautiful and delicious, we are proud to offer Blue Lotus Blossom Herbal Tea for the first time. This summer, we stumbled upon a 28 year old organic Lotus Flower Farm in our own backyard and couldn’t resist sharing them with you. Each blossom is hand picked, beautifully cared for, and carefully dried over three days, to give you an amazing hot or cold brew.
A fact that surprised us is that Blue Lotus is illegal in a small number of countries. Used in many religious rites and ceremonies throughout history, many cultures have revered this flower and used it to experience spiritual awakenings, fully aware of its effects. Buddhism has made extensive use of it in symbolism as well. Please check that it this tea is legal in your particular jurisdiction before you get some.
While we have not been ‘tripping’ as we have been enjoying this tasty herbal tea, we have noticed a clarity of thought and slightly positive change in mood. Apparently, however, if you concentrate it enough it is possible to have a hallucinogenic experience. Don't get too excited, however. The concentration needs to be very high :)

Recommend Brewing Style:
We have experimented with one blossom in 95C(205f) water for multiple one minute steeps in a smaller glass(~300ml), and with slightly lower temperatures and longer steep times in a larger teapot. Both seemed to work well!
Be careful as the first steep of this tisane can be bitter if you brew it intensely with hot water. If you have a low bitterness tolerance a quick, 30 second rinse to begin might be a good idea. Later steeps are sweet with hints of ripe yellow fruit and, of course, the intoxicating scent of the Lotus Blossom itself.
**As with most herbal teas, experiment yourself with brewing parameters to get the best possible result for your individual taste preferences. Good luck and let us know how it goes!

Lotus blossom tisane looks and tastes beautiful and peaceful. The first sips took me to the river bank of my hometown. Honest and mesmerizing taste.
Very Nice herbal tea
Tastes really nice and unique. Very calming and makes me feel pretty good. Definitely worth a try!
Sweet flower taste
This tisane has some really interesting mellow effects. The taste on the first steep is already sweet and has a really nice sweet (candy?) taste to it with a little bitterness. In the following steeps the bitterness subsides and the sweetness really comes out. Overall very interesting.
Great brew before bed. It’s full flavor is a nice touch at night.
