Trying to stay warm in this SNOW! and SNOW is a bit rare in my area. We get snow but it is here one day and gone the next day. Well not this time! It has been SNOWING almost none stop for two days! WOW! So I must steep! Being inspired by God’s beauty and creative work at play… I decided to play and create too! So steeped my beautiful lady like teas! ‘Lady Like’ you may say?!?! Well, it starts as a bud and as the water boils she blossoms into a beautiful full grown flower or ‘Lady’! These teas come in all different flavors with different color flowers.
When I purchased my flowers a single closed green bud fell off into the bottom of the vase. I left it there. Being a bit lazy and I thought it looked a lil cool and quirky. Also if that’s where you want to be… Who am I to deny you… Anyway, six mornings later… I go downstairs to steep my strawberry green tea and what catches my eye.
This bud has decided to defy odds. Decided not to die but to live and blossom into this beautiful flower and greet me ‘Good morning Beautiful Lady’ and I said oh no Darling you are truly beautiful and quite the charmer. Welcome to my kitchen. Nice to meet you dear lady.
I couldn’t wait to steep my newest blooming tea from Teavana! It is a Peach Momotari Artisan Tea. The smell of this bud is so explosive… You just wanna sip it right away. So into my glass Teavana pot it goes. Normally I use my cast iron set but for blooming teas you want to see that baby do it’s magic. As it unfolds and twirls then finally blossoms into a beautiful flower on your stove… Well you are just smiling. Or at least I am. It’s the small things in life that make my world Big!
