Jasmine Tea

Yesterday's tea time blog sparked my sharing a unique tea which is my daughter, Michelle's favorite.

Jasmine tea and not just the ordinary kind you find at the market.

When Michelle comes to visit, she goes into my tea drawer........yes, a whole large drawer full of teas.........and selects Jasmine. This tea comes in its own tin. There is no tea bag or loose tea. It is in the form of a ball.

The ball needs to be placed in a glass container in order to watch what happens. I use a canning jar. When hot water is poured over the tea ball, it starts to open and gradually up shoots the Jasmine flower.

It is quite spectacular and fun to watch. The smell is intoxicating.

This is what it looks like.....
