Flowering Jasmine Tea

I'm a tea fanatic, especially when it comes to jasmine loose leaf. I finally had the Numi flowering tea recently, at a little Japanese tea house in San Antonio with my parents. My mom and I practically chugged the pot of tea. Unfortunately, Numi is a little insane on their prices with their flowering teas, so I'm going to stick to my regular loose jasmine I get at the Asian market. Just as good, just doesn't look quite as pretty! Abc Wednesday Weekend Reflections

  2. When I worked for the National Association of Speciality Food Trade I was able to meet some of the owners of Numi Tea and helped display their flowering jasmine tea. It was the first time I ever saw flowers in the tea and how it rehydrated.
    I'm glad you found some. We enjoyed their samples very much.

  7. That's almost too pretty to drink! (But as a fellow tea freak, I probably would hesitate only long enough to snap some photos of my own!) :-) I have a clear glass teapot and have always wanted to try some flowering tea in it, but have been waiting for a special occasion and an audience larger than my husband, me, and our dogs. :-)

    I'm betting this tea smelled as wonderful as it looked and tasted, too. Such pretty photos!

  8. Very pretty! But I agree the flowering variety is not as economical. :)
