- Harvest blossoms when they’ve fully bloomed. Only the blossoms are used for teas. The plant will continue producing blooms to be continually harvested; simply pluck flowers at their peak bloom to make way for more.
- Dry the collected blooms in a temperate, well ventilated space for up to two weeks, until buds are dry. They are now ready for long term storage in an air-tight container, and can be added to teas or dishes. Blooms can be used fresh as well for immediate use.
