That's kind of how I feel about this tea.
I finally found some at Marshalls, bought it and put it in the girl's Christmas stocking.
This morning we made the tea. Since I don't have a glass tea pot or a glass tea mug - it wasn't as spectacular to witness the flower opening up in a ceramic-ish mug. But the kids were sufficiently impressed. After it had opened quite a bit - I transfered the "flower" to a clear plastic container and poured in more water.
The tea is "Earl Grey Black Tea" - but it's not your typical Earl Grey...there were some other flavors mixed in - as the boy stated - it tastes like it smells. And it did smell nice - but I prefer to wear rather than drink perfume.
Ingredients: black tea, jasmine flower, chrysanthemum, globe amaranth flower, carnation, tropaeolum, aristolochia debilis si, calendula officinalis, bergamot flavouring.
The girl had a couple of sips and declared she didn't really like it either.
Now I know there are varying flowers in the flowering tea department - perhaps the others are more flower looking than ours. To me it looked like a bunch of dried up twigs in a flower formation with a little flower-ish thing in the middle. Overall it was some relatively cheap fun.
