Numi flowering tea - after
Originally uploaded by hlkljgk
Our oldest son gave me this tea pot and Numi flowering tea for Christmas.
I had not tried it before. It not only tastes and smells delicious but when it is brewed in the clear glass pot, it looks like a sculptural work of art.
The flavors in the set he gave me are Shooting Star, Sunset Oolong, Golden Sunset, Dragon Lily, Jasmine Lovers and Lavender Dream.
Flowering tea is an art form made of hand picked tea leaves sewn around various flowers. This can take 10 minutes to sew the tea bundle. When steeped they slowly blossom into a bouquet.
Numi is the name of the tea company and they pioneered this technique. The ingredients are organic.
This is new to me and way wonderful.
