Flowering tea

Flowering or blooming tea is made by hand-sewing green tea leaves into small, silvery green balls around various flowers like for example amaranth, carnation, jasmine, chrysantemums, rose and marigold. Such ball is then dried.
When added to water, at the boiling point, flower tea ball will slowly open or let's say "blossom". Such tea can be refreshed 10-15 times by adding more water...
