Somewhere I read that we would all be better off if we spent more time with people under the age of six and over the age of 70. There are days I couldn't agree more. Today I was lucky enough to lunch with my neighbor who is in the latter category. We celebrated her birthday (which was yesterday) and I wished her many more. She's a treasure. And a tea lover. The tea lover is what prompted me to think of giving her this box of tea posies:
I really wanted to see her try one. They look fascinating to me. Have you all tried these? The box contained a medley of six different teas/flowers:
What garden lover wouldn't like a tea that "bloomed??" I may just have to break down and buy myself a box to watch the tea posies unfurl into what looks to be gorgeous blossoms. My friend/neighbor said they looked "interesting" so I hope she likes them and that they taste good too. Anyone out there who can verify this?? Brewing up a pot of tea takes on new meaning if the tea bag "flowers," know what I mean?
