Too beautiful to drink


R and I decided to try a special type of tea for our nightly cup this evening. Bought from China, White or Green tea leaves are hand sewn along with a blooming flower into a ball. You put the ball into the hot water and watch it flower. They are so beautiful it seems a shame to drink them. I continue to sit here looking at it. I will update with the flavour of the tea when I can bring myself to destroy the tea.

Haha notice the stickers on the bottom of the glasses? We never drink wine, they have been broken out for tea for the first time.

We just had our flowering tea. I think it had great possibilities. We over steeped it wanting to see what would happen to the flower which resulted in a bitter taste. I think if it was steeped correctly it would have a delicate white tea taste that would suit the floral display perfectly. I will have to experiment with these again.
