Kinda odd that its just floating at the top
I'm fairly new to blooming tea, all I do is add about 11 OZ. of hot water (190-boil) and let it sit till the flower has fully bloomed which is usually around 5 to 6 minutes. At first the blooming tea was floating around for about 1 min then sank to the bottom once it was full of water. If your blooming tea is real big then I'm assuming that it is going to take longer to absorb water and sink.
