It is June, it is the lotus blossoming season again.
Every year, at the beginning of summer, the lakes and ponds around the West Lake (Ho Tay) are covered with beautifully pink blossoming lotus flowers. West Lake lotus flowers are famous for their special delicate perfume that apparently cannot be achieved in any other areas in Vietnam.
West Lakes lotus for thousands of years have been harvested for its stamen to make lotus tea. Lotus tea is enjoyed not only for its delicate taste, but also for many health benefits, including treating the stomach, spleen and liver. Lotus tea is also effective in keeping body cool in the summer, against high blood pressure. Its calming properties also help relieve restlessness, heart palpitation and insomnia.
To make proper lotus tea is a long laborious process that takes weeks to perfect. Betterday is working closely with the local lotus tea makers to ensure our lotus tea is of highest standard. Our lotus tea will be available in our shop soon.
In the meantime, you can still enjoy the delicate taste of lotus tea with our fresh method of making this tea. We insert organic ancient green and black tea inside the lotus flowers. We then wrap the lotus flowers tightly with lotus leaves to retain its delicate perfume and allow our tea to soak in all the sweet sense of the lotus flowers.
The lotus flowers we use to make this tea come directly and only from Quang An, Tay Ho. As soon as the flowers are cut, the tea is inserted, so the freshness of the flowers are immediately infused in the tea. We could do this because we live locally and we know the lotus growers personally.
We put enough tea in the flower so there is enough to make tea for 6 to 8 people. Perfect for that quiet moment in the afternoon. Or as a beautiful present for someone you love.
This fresh lotus tea will not last long. It will only available during the lotus blossoming season. So make sure you place your orders now so you don’t miss out.
