I've been wanting to try a flowering tea for... forever... well, a really long time. I saw them at the co-op last year but they were sooo expensive. Well, today I said I deserved a treat and paid five bucks for a sample pack of four blossoms. Heck, a cup of tea at a diner costs a buck so it's not THAT bad. I couldn't wait to try it... I wasn't going to spend twelve bucks on the adorable little round pot so I wasn't sure what I was going to brew it in. The tea fairies were smiling on me though and when I stopped at the thrift store next, I found a little mini coffee carafe! It worked just fine. :-) I'm thrilled to bits... not only is the tea absolutely beautiful, it tastes exquisite!!!
