Happy New Year!
While the winter winds howl around the outside corners and eaves of my house, I am warm and cozy inside, enjoying a little taste of springtime in my teabowl.
This is a beautiful hand-tied display China green tea called Bai Hua Kai. It comes in a little pod form that transforms when hot water is poured over it. Watch and enjoy!
I steeped the pod for 5 minutes in 180 degree water. The resulting liquor is delicate and very sweet. Delightful!
