Our Blue Lotus Flowers are dried and packed to keep them fresh for you. They are ideal for making tea, adding to wine or other drinks, or smoking. Please read about How to Use Blue Lotus.
Blue Lotus Flowers are now available in Open Flowers, Open Flat Flowers, Closed Flower Buds and the Petal & Stamen Tea.
There is no difference between the Open and Closed Flowers apart from when they were picked. The Closed Flowers are picked at night, the Open Flowers are picked during the day.
To make a cup of Blue Lotus Tea simply drop one or two flowers, or a teaspoon of Petal & Stamen Tea into a cup of hot water and allow it to steep until cool enough to drink. Blue Lotus Tea is a natural aphrodisiac, sleep aid, and anxiety reliever.
Important Note: Each packet of the Dried Flowers will contain mostly whole flowers but there will be some loose petals and stamens. This makes the best tea, but if you have a preference, please let me know in a comment when you purchase.
