The leaves, the cups, the pots. Everyday, I can choose something different to drink my tea in.
I'm not QUITE a tea snob.....yet.
This tea is as different as they come. Called 'flowering tea', it does just that when it comes in contact with hot water.
It starts out as a tiny, tightly compacted ball of tea leaves that looks like a really big seed.
It doesn't look like it could possibly turn out to be anything like the picture on the package.
The nice little ball of who knows what, opens slowly.
Until there is a full-blown flower in the tea pot!
