Flowering Tea

Today I enjoyed a cup of tea and thought you would enjoy the beauty of it too...

The tea leaves are hand sewn with cotton thread into bundles by artisans throughout China.

When steeped in hot water, these "leaves of art" slowly blossom into beautiful flower shapes...

This picture you can see how the thread is tied around the leaves to shape the flower design.

Thanks Jennifer for sharing these with me. I have really enjoyed sipping the delicious flavor of the tea as well as watching them bloom.

Hi Mom,
I really enjoyed looking at your blooming tea pictures. You did a great job taking them. The progression is really cool. I really liked the last photo where you are looking down into the tea pot. I am glad that you liked the tea :)
