Have you ever heard of this?

On the weekend we had a couple of friends over to play board games (Ticket to Ride and Settlers of Catan).  When M asked me to boil water for tea, I had no idea what was going to happen next.  From her purse she produced a clear mug to display her blooming tea!  I am not a drinker of caffeinated beverages, (other than Coca Cola, of course), so I found this product quite surprising.  It looked something like this, (and because it's a photograph, I mean it looked exactly like this):

What do you think?!  Have you ever seen anything like this??  I said it looked like an octopus and hubby thought it looked like an alien.  Would you like to see another view - this time of the flower itself?  Of course you would.

If you're a tea drinker, here is a link where you can buy something similar from David's Tea.  I think M had it right.  Something as strange pretty as this should be put in a clear glass for all to see.  (As an aside, I won the game of Settlers we were playing in the background of these photos.  That's a very important detail.)


  1. You made some good points there. I did a search on the topic and found most people will agree with your blog.

    Blooming Teas

  2. Have you tried drinking any tea from David's tea? I don't remember if I told you about them while we were visiting in Montreal last year. It's a great tea company that sells really yummy loose tea leaves. They have lots of great flavours... between my last two roommates they probably had half the store!
