Frequently Asked Questions
How do I enjoy The Qi flowers?
Pour hot water (180-195°F) over one flower in a small pot (or a large mug, in which case feel free to add as much water as you need), and let it steep for three minutes before enjoying.
The tisanes — also known as herbal tea — are equally delicious warm or chilled. To make a chilled tisane, brew it as you would a warm tisane and let it chill in the fridge for at least four hours before consuming. For the most visual splendor, we recommend using glassware to prepare your tisanes.
Do you do any testing on your flowers?
Yes. The Qi carries out independent testing on all of their flowers in the USA in accordance with the USDA National Organic Program (NOP) to ensure that their flowers are of the highest quality and adhere to USDA NOP standards.
How should I store The Qi flowers?
Keep the flowers at their best by storing them in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. They stay even fresher and last longer when stored in the refrigerator.
How do I store the flower after only steeping it one time in the mug?
Keep the flower in a container with a top that can be closed so it stays airtight. Store it in the fridge over night and enjoy additional steeping the next day. The sooner you can enjoy the flowers, the better.
What is the shelf life of the flowers?
The shelf life of the sealed and unopened flowers is 1.5 years.
How and when will I feel the health benefits?
Our bodies are unique and the results will vary person to person. In some instances, physical results can be seen and felt almost immediately. For others, it might be a slower process over days or weeks. The mental and emotional effects of taking a moment to pause and rebalance with a cup of The Qi flowers, however, are certainly felt right away.
