My darling Friend Lynn introduced me to Blossom Tea last week. It starts out as a dry, tightly pressed ball about the size of a large marble. When boiling water is added it begins to bloom--as you can see above.
Then suddenly a string of blossoms pops up from the larger bloom. It was the prettiest thing I've seen in a long time, and the tea was delicious.
This is a closeup shot of the lower bloom. I thought the bubbles gathering on the petals of the tea blossom were lovely.
