Did you guess what the little “tea kernel’ from yesterday’s post is? Here it is, opening up to reveal its hidden treasure. Meet Jasmine Blossom tea, a specialty hand-tied display tea from China. The leaves are plucked and processed as green tea. Then a bunch of leaves are tied together around a beautiful pink flower which is revealed once the tea is steeped in hot water.

Once fully steeped and opened, it looks like an exotic sea creature to me. The tea leaves have been scented with blooming jasmine flowers, giving them a delicate floral aroma and taste. This tea is a feast for many senses!
