I’ve been drinking a lot of flowering tea lately and was curious to know how it’s made. Here is an interesting video I found as I was doing a bit of research. Flowering tea is great and always gets me some interesting stares when I infuse it in my glass tea infuser in public. Most people who are not really into tea haven’t seen anything like this. Flowering tea, like all tea, is good for you as well. It’s usually made from a black or white tea base and a hand sewn flower is placed in the middle.
Every good tea website / blog should have a section on tea reviews! I have actually been working on my tea review section for about a month now and have almost completed it. I guess my problem is a good one to have if you are really into tasting tea, like me! I’ve tried so many different teas that I am having a hard time putting all the information together in one nice and tidy little section of my blog. It keeps getting “worse,” too. Today, I tried two different types of teas that I have never had. I can’t help myself! I see something cool and I have to taste it! I went shopping today for clothes and didn’t find anything. I went to Whole Foods for organic apple juice for the baby and suddenly found myself studying their tea section. I definitely found something there! One of my favorite little treats are these tea shots…and they come in sencha, oolong and mate varieties. They are so cold, yummy and refreshing. I could drink a case. I’ve never been able to “shoot” real shots (YUCKY!). When the shots are made of tea, though…I can throw them back!
