Ikebana You Can Drink
There was a time when, throughout the fashionable salons of Europe and the New World, tea, with it's perceived health giving properties, was king. Then someone discovered and brought back the coffee plant. Which although initially perceived as the poorer relation beverage, quickly, along with the other new discovery Chocolate, became international cafe society's hot drinks of choice.
However, in Asia and the Orient, tea, both black and green maintained it's dominance and in these regions tea drinking has always be seen as both a healthy and cultural/aesthetic activity.
Tea Blossoms is a boutique tea company dedicated to furthering those traditions. Our range of elaborately hand made "artistic flower teas" are green tea leaves with flowers wrapped inside that when placed in boiling water, open to create beautiful underwater flower arrangements. Basically Ikebana you can drink.
At around $3 per ball, with up to 4 tall glasses of tea from each ball, this is not anything like as expensive as you would imagine, for an entirely handmade and natural product. And is available through a fast growing variety of specialist outlets as well as online at www.teablossoms.com.au
