The honeysuckle flower is 100% wild harvested from the White Tea Mountain in early summer, just before the blossoms open.
When the honeysuckle flowers are just about to open, they must be harvested immediately. The blossoms are heaped into piles in a process called yang hua, which primes and ripens the flowers. The honeysuckle flowers ripen for a few hours, until they have started to open, then are steamed for a few minutes, and then are air dried on bamboo racks in the shade.
After the delicate drying process is finished (usually in about two days), the flowers are gently roasted, cooled, and then packed to age for at least six months. Like aging the tea, aging the dried flowers is believed to increase not only their sweet and earthy flavor, but also their healing properties.
