How to make your Flower Tea from THE QI

The Qi is an exquisite sensory experience for a moment of calm, wellness, beauty, and escape from the frantic modern world. We source organically grown whole flowers you can recognize. We do not add or blend anything with it. Each flower is hand-picked at its peak, usually early morning right after sunrise when they are in the fullest bloom. 

Let’s take a look at how to make the basic flower tea.

What you need:


  • 1 the Qi Whole Flower
  • 1 oz hot water
  • honey to taste
  • 3/4 milk for latte (optional)


  • Use bamboo tongs to submerge the flower in the hot water
  • Stir in honey
  • Add milk for a latte experience(optional)
  • Sip and Enjoy

About THE QI

DRINK FLOWERS. BE WELL.We believe inner and outer beauty are intricately connected. We also believe in the power of flowers to promote a deep sense of holistic well-being for all.  That’s why we started The Qi. It’s how we wish everything good for you could be this simple and beautiful.

For thousands of years cultures around the world used certain flowers to beautify and heal. Rooted in these time-honored rituals these healing whole flowering herbs are deeply nourishing, grounding, and revitalizing.

About the Founder

As a child who grew up in a coastal town in Asia, I drank a lot of herbal teas with my grandma. And those moments were some of the most nourishing and healing times of my life. Holistic wellness for me as a child was much like brunch… it was simply a way of a joyful life. 

Fast forward 20 years later I was living in NYC burnt out, stressed and anxious. I wanted to go back to a time where wellness was simple, beautiful and nourishing. I took a trip to Shangri-la, Yunnan and came across these one-of-a-kind Roses the locals enjoy – I’ve never experienced anything so stunning and transformative. I then realized unless you’re from these small remote villages on the high mountains next to Tibet you would not have access to it.  So I set out on a mission to bring these high-quality food-grade flowers to the world so you too can enjoy this gorgeous sensory experience.

After over a year of research, tens of thousands of miles traveled, and 100+ flowering herbs tasted The Qi was born. We work with small family-owned farms that only offer single-origin whole flower herbs as these flowers consistently yield the richest flavonoids, nutrients and aroma. We so hope you find them delightful.

Drink flowers. Be well.
