Blooming teas are handcrafted bundles of dried tea leaves that when added to water will bloom like a natural flower. The 'flower' can then be steeped two to three times after that. They come in a variety of different flavors, in all tea categories. I particularly love my blueberry green blooming tea.
Though the taste of the tea is important, with these it's their appearance that makes them special. To me it's a crime to steep a blooming tea in anything but a glass teapot. When I brew a cup with a blooming tea flower I sit with my face planted in front of the teapot and gawk innocently as it delicately unfolds. Definitely something to see.
So if you are interested, check them out! They taste and look amazing. And if you're not interested in drinking them, maybe just put a few out on display for elegant home decor!
