Chinese flowering tea, originally uploaded by Kevglobal.

More experiments with our flowering tea from China. This time, we didn’t fill up the pot quite so completely, and the tea bloom sunk to the bottom of the pot and opened up. It really is stunning, and as with our first experiment, not only does this tea look stunning but it tastes wonderful as well (possibly not quite as good as some of the other teas I bought, but they taste utterly sublime so it’s quite a challenge).
