A tea drinker who has never experienced a tea flower will be thrilled to receive this gift-ready set. Containing twelve assorted tea flowers, the slender canister-style box is tied with a green cord and decorated with an image of a flower-filled glass teapot on one side and small images of the twelve unfurled tea flowers on the other. Tea flowers are comprised of AA-grade green tea leaves and actual dried flowers that are hand-sewn into tight balls by artisans in China. After a tea flower ball is place in hot water, it will slowly sink to the bottom and unfurl into full "bloom." Some even have two different kinds of flowers that unfurl into a colorful spectacle, adding fragrance and flavor to the tea. Best viewed through a glass teapot, each tea flower may be used up to three times to brew a pot of tea. The set includes a guide describing the health benefits of drinking green tea and the healing properties believed inherent in certain flowers. --Ann Bieri
