Flowering Teas

Recently I tried one of my flowering teas.  The gift box came with a glass teapot, infuser and a canister with twelve different tea flowers.  It is green tea with fresh jasmine.

I decided to try a tea flower called Fairy Lily.  It was well packaged in airtight cellophane.

The tea flower is a little strange looking when dry, but the end result is quite lovely.

It was difficult to see the flower unfurling at first, but then it was very interesting to watch.

I’m not a big fan of jasmine tea, but I found this to be pleasant and not excessively flowery.

It should be interesting to see how the other flowers compare to the Fairy Lily.  Each one is tied in such a way as to become a unique  looking flower.

I've been on a blogging break a medical hiatus...so now, I've been enjoying the stroll through posts I've missed.
I've been looking for this tea kit. Could you let me know where I can purchase it.
I belong to a private food blog and we are going to have a tea party. I'd like to feature these.

Come for a visit I've got some Easter confections.

Sweet wishes,
Sara

I had this same tea kit that I picked up at Linen's n Things before they closed the store. I am not a fan of the taste of these tistains (sp-?) but did find the flowers beautiful after opening. Unfortunately my beautiful glass pot came to a tragic ending- :-(
