Fun with tea!

This fancy glass tea pot was a Christmas gift from my mom! I love tea. I don't drink it as much as I'd like. I have a really nice cast iron one from the inlaws that I wish I used more. For some reason I just don't think about it. Maybe because it's just tucked away in the hutch....anyway, this tea pot is for flowering tea. Time for fun tea, and photography! (rhyme not intentional!) the flowering tea starts out as a tight ball. You place it in the pot, heat some water then wait for it to cool a little as to not burn the delicate leafs...
and here we have it opening up. Very pretty, and tasty! You can save the buds and reuse them up to 3 times. 
Cheers to tea!
