Dried Lotus Leaf Tea Introduction
Lotus is a famous aquatic plant native to Asia and Australia but was later brought to the West. It is not only popular for its intense beauty but also as a tea. Our special lotus tea will win you over with its unusual blue color and its light sweet and floral taste. It is completely caffeine free which means it is suitable for people who avoid it and it will not disturb your sleep pattern.
The lotus plant is harvested in autumn and the soft flowers are handpicked and left to dry naturally. That way, the aroma and flavor are preserved as well as the whole flowers, which are not cut. Teabags and teas that are ground up are simply do not have the same quality and you definitely won’t get the proper experience.
An interesting thing about this plant is that you can use all parts of it. The flowers are used as ornaments and for making potpourri because of their sweet scent. Every part of the lotus is edible, including the flowers, leaves, seeds, stem, and root. It is a common ingredient in Asian cuisine for meals like kung pao, renkon chips, kimpira, stir fries, and many others. The seeds are also used to make flour and you can also pop them like popcorn.
The lotus plant is probably most popular for its magical history and spiritual importance. It has great symbolical value in the Buddhist religion. It represents purity and rising above all earthly desires and possessions because lotus grows from the mud and transforms into an incredibly pure flower that looks divine. It is as though it’s growing out to the light and symbolizes the ascent from darkness and confusion to the ultimate knowledge and spiritual wisdom. The color of the lotus flower also has significance and different spiritual meanings. White represents purity, blue is logic and knowledge, purple is connected to mystical powers, red is love, romance and passion, pink represents the Buddha himself and his journey, and gold is ultimate enlightenment and spiritual perspective. The growth process of lotus also represents the ultimate journey to spirituality and enlightenment, making it a very sacred plant.
In Hinduism, it represents the eternal, beauty, purity, fertility, and abundance. Human life is viewed like a lotus; we are born and at first burdened by earthly pleasures and basic human instincts, but then we slowly evolve spiritually, gaining knowledge and wisdom, finally arriving to pure consciousness and enlightenment. The lotus is believed to represent the gods Vishnu and Brahma, and is considered to be a doorway to the sacred universe and divine creation. In Egypt, it was a symbol of the sun, creation, and rebirth. Because the flowers opens at dawn and closes during nighttime, it reminded them of the sun rising and setting.
Lotus tea has many different components to it: beautiful taste and smell, many health benefits, and incredible history and symbolical value. Drinking only a sip of this tea will spread the flavor all over your taste buds and connect you to ancient mystical times as you relax and enjoy it.
One amazing quote says, "Growing from the mud and blooming towards the sky, a lotus symbolizes purity, spiritual awakening, revival and fortune."
