Yes – that is a flower in my tea. Yes, it’s supposed to be there.
Teabloom is a company that is dedicated to tea, and to creating tea accessories to help you brew the perfect cup. I recently had the opportunity to try out Teabloom’s glass teapot and the “Eternal Love” heart-shaped green tea flowers.
You start by boiling water in a kettle, then placing one flower in the bottom of the glass teapot. Next, pour hot water over the flower, making sure there is about 3-4 inches of water in the pot. Wait 10 minutes and you’ll see the flower unfold and the tea brew.
Teabloom flowering tea definitely makes having a simple cup of tea more fun. Rather than stick a tea bag in there and wait until it has steeped, you have a beautiful flower, hand-sewn by Teabloom artisans using edible dried flowers and high-quality tea leaves.
Teabloom is so committed to brewing luxurious tea that they serve it at The Beverly Hills Hotel, The Ritz Carlton, the Hotel Bel Air and more.
This particular set contains green tea flowers in flavors like jasmine, pomegranate, strawberry, rose, litchi and peach but you can also buy flowers in flavors like blueberry, orange, acai, pineapple and cranberry.
