Orange Blossom Story
The Orange tree is a small tree growing 10 m tall, with thorny shoots and evergreen leaves 4-10 cm long. The fruit of Citrus sinensis is called sweet orange to distinguish it from Citrus aurantium, the bitter orange. Orange blossom is the fragrant flower of the Citrus sinensis tree. The flowers usually open in one great flush of white blooms in the spring and give rise to orange fruits the following autumn or winter.
It is believed that Sweet Orange has its origins in China and from there has been cultivated in virtually every country across the globe in tropical and subtropical climates, with most of the current production coming from Florida, California and parts of the Mediterranean. Orange blossom is the state flower of Florida.
Orange blossom is an important component in the making of perfumes. Traditionally associated with good fortune and deemed to be aphrodisiac, the flower has been popular in bridal bouquets and head wreaths for weddings. The petals of orange blossom can also be made into the delicately scented orange flower water (as an alternative to rose water), a common part of both French cuisine and Middle Eastern cuisine, most often as an ingredient in desserts and baked goods. In the United States, orange flower water is used to make orange blossom scones and marshmallows. In Spain and the Middle East, fallen orange blossoms are dried and then used to make a wonderful tea.

With tea bag
One sachet is good to infuse a whole tea pot of 2-4 cups (300-600 ml); to your taste. We recommend that you infuse the tea bag only once to enjoy the natural colors that will be released with the first infusion.
Infuse 1 sachet in 300-600 ml of freshly boiled water for 5-10 min. Make sure to keep tea covered while steeping so that the health promoting essential oils don't evaporate. When it is to your taste, remove the tea bag and serve. If you have any leftover, just refrigerate and reheat gently the following day.
With loose tea
Before scooping, shake your FloralTea tin upside down to blend, for perfect taste and color from one cup to the next.
Scoop 1-2 g of blend per cup; to your taste. Infuse in freshly boiled water for 5-10 min. When it is to your taste, filter and serve. If you have any leftover, just refrigerate and reheat gently the following day.
Follow the above instructions for hot tea, and then refrigerate before serving. You can freeze a portion in ice cubes and use them instead of regular ice cubes to keep your tea iced cold without diluting the taste when the ice cubes are melting. If you have any leftover, just refrigerate again and serve cold the following day.
