I love having a cup of tea in the afternoon.
I deliberately set aside anything else that I am doing to brew some tea and find a quite place to rest and enjoy it.
Many times, I will enjoy my tea with a dear friend and some priceless conversation.
It’s one of the highlights of my day.
I have been coveting beautiful glass tea pots for the single reason of making this Numi Flowering Tea.
This is not a sponsored post, just sharing one of my favorite products.
I happened to find a glass tea pot at the thrift store recently for $1.69. You can also get them on Amazon, which was my next option.
The main reason I wanted a glass tea pot, was so that I could make this beautiful tea. I am sure I will find other ways to use it, but this will be my favorite, I am certain.
Numi makes a lot of different teas, but the flowering tea is definitely my favorite.
The tea blossoms are first hand sewn into a closed position, the bud is then dried. Some of the designs are so elaborate it takes ten minutes to sew them together.
It’s a work of art.
What gardener wouldn’t covet a cup of this beautiful tea?
When you drop the Flowering tea blossom into a boiling pot of water, the blossom opens.
Nothing could be more lovely.
Hard to believe that beautiful tea comes from this tiny flower bud.
Each blossom is a different flavor of tea, and can be re-used several times. I have found that the flavor actually comes out more with each additional steeping of the tea.
This particular blossom is called Oolong Sunset. Isn’t that a great name?
The Numi Flowering Tea is a bit of a challenge to find in the stores, I happened to find mine at World Market, but if you are ordering a tea pot from Amazon, you may as well save your self a trip and order some tea at the same time.
Amazon also carries tea pot sets that come with the Numi Flowering Tea, which would be a great gift idea.
Because this tea is so beautiful and unique, I would save it for a special occasion rather than have it every day.
Then again, if you’re having a bad time, this may be just the treat you need.
Be sure to find a quite corner to enjoy it!
