Flowering Tea... water first or after?

I’m trying one of my new flowering teas called Eternal Paradise. (It’s good, but the name is a little presumptuous.) I only drink a few flowerings tea since most of them are just too sweet for me. This one is nice a mild sweetness.

I always wonder the best way to serve flowering tea. After warming the pot, do you put the tea in and then pour the water on top, or fill with water and drop the tea in?  I usually do the latter as pouring water on the tea seems to loosen it from the stitching.
