Blooming Art Teas

After the entry on tea I posted a week or so a go, Lily La Sorciere and I got to discussing blooming art teas, and I was determined to track down a video of the lovely things blooming.  I finally found an ad by Teaposy.  Take a look:

This is so amazing! Wow.

Ah, I'm so excited you found this and posted it! So beautiful. Seeing this, I had to get up and look at the kind I bought: Lady Fairy (I had forgotten). I will definately post pics or a video of it when I use it! <3

To Amelia: I'm glad you liked this. I thought the video made the unfurling even more dramatic, as it was time lapse. Usually it takes between two and two and a half minutes for one of these to fully unfurl.

To Lily La Sorciere: I can't wait to see your video. I did a search on YouTube, and there are actually quite a few people who have posted similar videos. I'm tempted to buy a couple of these teas and make one of my own as well. There is something very soothing about watching them steep.

You should! I want to buy more, too. The reason I keep postpoing using mine is because I only have one! So, I need more. ;) hehe

I absolutely LOVE blooming tea. I've only had it once--it was gorgeous.

To Lily La Sorciere: I would imagine that you can get more at a well stocked grocer, but I know they are pretty expensive. I have yet to purchase one because of that. Though apparently you can get several pots of tea from one flower, and each subsequent pot will be stronger in flavor.

To Jessica: I have yet to try it. It is definitely on my to-do list though. A lot of them have a jasmine flavor, and I adore jasmine tea.
