Primula Tea Experience Gift Set

Primlua Set

A wonderful gift to give or receive, the Primula Tea Experience Gift Set is perfect for brewing beautiful flowering and loose teas. A clear, 40oz hand-blown borosilicate glass tea pot allows you to watch the magic of the tea leaves brewing delicious green tea as they unfurl into an exquisite flower, or create your own perfect tea blend with the included glass tea infuser and loose tea sampler.

What is Borosilicate Glass?

Borosilicate glass is made mainly of silica and boron oxide. Known for having low thermal expansion properties, this type of glass is less subject to thermal stress and shock due to temperature extremes. This means that the glass can go from hot to cold and vice versa without risk of cracking or breaking, as well as being microwave, dishwasher, and stovetop safe. Borosilicate glass is a widely used material in cookware and beverageware products due to its heat resistance, durability, and versatility.

Something Extraordinary Is Brewing

The Primula Tea Experience Gift Set is packaged with a sampling of six of our famous flowering teas and three loose teas in green, black, and white varieties. All Primula teas are made of grade AA green tea leaves, and our flowering teas combine fresh green tea leaves with all-natural flowers, blended 5 times with jasmine for a fresh, aromatic scent, and hand-sewn into small clusters that unfurl and brew when placed into hot water. Because there are no tea bags or filters to remove the beneficial antioxidants and the wonderful flavor of the tea, flowering and loose teas allow you to bring out the best taste of the tea while enjoying the visual experience of the blooming process and the ability to create your own special loose leaf blend. Each tea flower comes individually sealed in a foil pouch to preserve freshness, and can be used three times within 24 hours, making up to 15 cups of tea each, and each loose tea variety comes in a resealable foil pouch. Made from the finest natural tea leaves and hand-sewn by Chinese artisans, every Primula tea flower and loose tea packet is inspected and certified by CIQ, a specialized Chinese governing agency that works with the approval of the FDA.

Give In To The Power of Tea!

Recent research indicates that including tea in one’s diet has many benefits and helps to maintain a healthy body and mind. Rich in flavonoids (also known as antioxidants), tea helps regulate and neutralize free radicals in the body – substances that can cause damage to the cells, resulting in poor cell regeneration and accelerated cell aging, leading to chronic disease. Tea also contains fluoride, which is integral in maintaining good dental health, and the antioxidants in tea may also prevent the growth of plaque-building bacteria. Virtually calorie-free when consumed without milk and sugar, tea is refreshing & rehydrating in hot weather and warm & soothing during chilly winter months.

I purchased this set for my sister who loves tea even more than I do. I loved her set so much I went back and bought one for me! The set includes a lovely borosilicate tea pot which makes it versatile. You can use it in your microwave, but you probably won't. The heating and pouring of the water are essential elements of the ritual of tea making.

When you pour the hot water over the hand-tied tea balls, you will witness an enchanting display. The tea balls slowly open into delightful flowers. The pot and infuser are perfectly clear to show off your tea and allow you to easily witness the unfolding of your tea flower. I don't bother with the infuser because the tea balls shed very little during the brewing.

Best of all, the tea is delicious. The green tea flavor is robust (through 3 potential infusions) and the jasmine is very subtle. I have since tried other brands but Primula has struck the perfect balance between flavor and beauty. I strongly recommend this set to anyone who loves tea and the soothing ritual of brewing tea.

By the way, you should try not to boil the water you use for infusing green teas. The flavor will be negatively affected by boiling hot water. Try to catch the water just before it boils. Small bubbles will start to rise. That's the perfect time to remove the water from the heat and brew your tea.

Happy sipping!

Product Packaging: Standard PackagingSize Name: 1 Flowering Teas Verified Purchase
BE FOREWARNED: I bought this teapot for my wife as a little surprise gift little over three months ago as we're tea fans. I was impressed by the product descriptions of its 'laboratory-strength' thick glass; I had wanted to purchase a sturdy glass pot. And the fact that this was identified as dishwasher and microwave safe seemed additional testimony to its durability.

Please note: it's never been used in dishwasher OR microwave; it's been treated with great care simply because: that's how we are. And yet, just now: as the pot stood, filled on the counter: a roundish/tear-drop-shaped portion of the pot just popped OUT from the side. Untouched. It simply: broke. All by itself. A portion of the pot blew out, with attendant crack leading up to the top of the pot. And: she had made the tea about 1.5 hours previously; it wasn't even hot. But: of course, she and the counter were suddenly treated to a half-pot of tea.

VERY disappointed as well as extremely puzzled over how something like this could even happen. And it's clear there was no concussion from the outside: both the piece AND the pot show the glass blew OUTWARDS and that portion is fully intact.

This is a wonderful, unique gift for anyone who enjoys tea, including yourself.

I initially purchased this set as a Christmas gift for a male attorney I work with who very much a tea person. He absolutely loves the entire concept from the flowering tea balls to the different medicinal benefits of each flower.

The teas are very flavorful, soothing, fun to watch and one tea ball last sometimes a couple days (we get at least three - four good steeps out of one ball, more if the pot gets emptied quickly).

The teas can be purchased at Meijer for $11.99 for the same 12 ball canister that comes with the set (they've been on sale for $9.99). It took us close to three months of brewing this tea almost daily to finish one canister.

Tip: The lid to the pot broke, and while you can purchase the lid from the manufacture, the $4.00 lid plus the $8.00 shipping comes to almost half the cost of an entire set. I took a lid from a large Yankee candle jar, removed the plastic seal (the seal holds the scent of the candle), the lid fits perfectly and works equally as well as the original lid, possibly better as it's heaver. (Any lid from a candle jar about that size will likely work).

The attorney and our entire office have enjoyed this tea and I too am looking forward to trying the teas iced!

Enjoy Ü

The great thing about a glass teapot is that you can see exactly how the tea is brewing. This means you can use the color to tell you how strong the tea is at a glance. Accordingly, we always have a few glass pots in our house.

Unfortunately, this particular glass tea pot is extremely fragile ... a lot more fragile than other glass pots we have used. The pot looks great, its true, but if you just barely clank the lid against the pot as you take the lid on or off, a piece of glass will simply break off. This has now happened to two of these pots, each after just over a week of use, and we will not be buying any more of them. The problem is that the glass is just too thin. This is great for looks, but it is simply not practical for regular use.

My suggestion, if you like glass teapots, stick with Bodum pots since these pots are a heck of a lot sturdier and will typically last a few years rather than just a week.

This product is unbelievable. You just drop the ball in the tea pot with boiling water and it will change in front of your eyes into a beautiful flower. It is great and it would be an awesome gift! The tea pot by itself is very nice and it is easy to pour the tea to a cup. It does not leak.
