No flowers around yet, so instead I’ll share this photo of a flowering tea.  Tea leaves are wrapped around dried flowers and tied at the bottom.  When steeped, the leaves open, revealing the flower/s.  It’s a joy to watch the unfurling as well as to see the finished “flower” and drink the tea.

If you’re a tea-lover as I am, I encourage you add to the pleasure of your tea experience by periodically indulging in a flowering tea.  Besides the flavor of the tea, you will also engage your sense of sight with the gradual opening and eventual beauty of the flower.
