Next time your guests ask for tea, serve them the Budding Flower from Red & Green Company. A globe amaranth and chrysanthemum wrapped with young green tea and infused with the scent of magnolias will have them swooning as they watch the petals unfold in their cup. Co-founder Chongbin Zheng, an artist, grew up in Hangzou, a famous tea region of China. He travels back to his homeland to work closely with farmers to create exceptional teas which he has re-fitted in cool packages—from hermetically sealed aluminum canisters, clay jars, to bamboo canisters. He also has a knack for teapot design. Using craftsman from Chinese factories whose designs date back to the 1300s, Chongbin brings their time-honored techniques to his modern designs.
