Blooming tea


…These are showing up at the most elegant weddings and showers.

…Rariteas are tea bulbs that unfold into pretty bouquets.

…Skilled Chinese artisans hand-sew white tea leaves around dried flower blossoms.

…Check it out at http://www.rariteas.com/.

…The bulbs also convey a message, such as Honesty or Serenity.

…Some people are even sending them to the troops and part of the profits go to the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society.

…White tea has the highest concentration of anti-oxidants among all teas and can help reduce LDL cholesterol, some studies show.

…Yes, you can drink white tea without the posies, but isn’t it fun to do something pretty an unexpected for the senses sometimes?

…At least, these could be a conversation starter—“How long has this tea been sitting here exactly?”

…Just kidding.
