Teaposy - Blooming Tea

Recently we got the Teaposy "blooming teas" back in stock, so we took the opportunity to take some pictures of one of the teas in action.

The tea starts out looking like this, a little ball of hand-tied tea leaves.

Add some hot water (not quite boiling, around 175 degrees F) and it starts to open up.

This one is called "falling water", a calendula flower with a little chain of jasmine blossoms floating up from the center. You can see the flowers just peeking out now.

Isn't that beautiful?

The tea itself has a nice jasmine scent. Even though it steeps for quite a while (around 10 minutes for it to open fully), it doesn't taste bitter. Display teas like this are great for parties and special occasions. You could even get a big fish bowl or punch bowl and put several of them in as a centerpiece for a table.

We have assortments of different kinds available on our website here.
