this week's obsession: flowering tea

My husband semi-recently discovered these teas and we finally bought some.
...needless to say, I was super excited when they arrived yesterday! =D

Its basically a ball of tea leaves and flowers packed together and tied with thread. Just place it in your teapot (get a clear glass one so you can watch the show!) and add hot water and the ball unfurls and looks like a blooming flower. Each flavor blooms a different flower. And the tea is delicious! I prepared the Green Tea with Acai Berry shown below.
