Alphabe Thursday … J is for Jasmine

July 26, 2012

These beautiful balls are carefully handmade; with white tea leaves; tied around jasmine flowers and a chrysanthemum.
The balls are made with special tea that will not become bitter; during the longer brewing time they need.  The flower balls are quite unique; when the hot water is added, they gradually open.  A beautiful fragrance and flavour is released.

    How interesting! I’ve never seen anything like this before, but that’s no surprise to me really. I feel like I live in a cave away from civilizations sometimes. lol

      It is odd and actually a little unpleasant. But a bit of fun … why in a cave?

    Hmm, these look really intriguing. At the very least, even if the taste doesn’t agree with you, they look good 🙂

      I love the taste; but to be honest it does look a little bit like a creature. So not my favourite in that respect. But it was fun to do …

    It does look a little like a creature (((winkwink)))…

    But the fragrance is absolutely Jovial…

    Great Job!
