Wordless Wednesday Linky: flowering or blooming teas

I have a Wordless Wednesday linky each week. Be sure to link your post below and to follow me if you want to easily find this weekly linky.

This post is shared with Trish's Tea Party Tuesday, Donna's Tuesday Tea Chat, Martha's Tea Cup TuesdayTerry's Tea Cup Tuesday, Wordless Wednesday, What I Love Wednesday, Vintage Share the Love Wednesday, Woo Us To Your Blog, and Thursday-13.

I love to watch these tea balls turn into beautiful blossoms and so will your guests. They are great conversation starters. This is an ancient Chinese art form. Tea leaves and flowers are carefully wrapped together in the shape of a ball and dried. When hot water is poured over them, they slowly bloom into a lovely tea with a blossom or even a miniature bouquet.

In the top row of the mosaic, you can see how they slowly bloom.

Happy Wednesday to all,
