The Fortune Light is an eternal celestial creature in Chinese mythology. The story goes that this creature manifests itself in the form of a horse with a yellow coat and a pair of starry red eyes. It rides across the silver river (the Milky Way) and it is the keeper of the virtuous.

This flowering tea is crafted from single green tea leaves with marigold petals as its base. It has a pink amaranth bloom in the centre and a ring of seven pure white jasmines over the bloom.

Each bud can make up to two pots of tea.

For best results brew for around 3 minutes in water of 80-85ºc.
