Bloomin' Tea

With all that's been going on lately I decided my kids
and I needed something new and different.

We decided to try Blooming Tea.
Easy, warm and hopefully comforting.

What the heck is Blooming Tea you ask?
Wikipedia defines it as "a small bundle of dried tea leaves and flowers bound together with cotton thread into a ball. When steeped, the bundle expands and unfurls in a process that emulates a blooming flower. Flowers commonly used in flowering teas include globe amaranth, chrysanthemum, jasmine, lily, hibiscus and osmanthus." 

We heated the water.


Cute little bundles eh?



Once boiling, turned the heat off.


Dropped in the tea bundle and waited.


ooohh....


ahhh...


mmm....


pretty...


tasty too...


And best of all...

it made us smile.
