We picked up a box of Tea Posies for my daughter for Christmas. These unusual teas make an visually appealing and unique gift. They are available from the China Pearl in Farragut for about $24 for a box of 6 tea bulbs. A box of 6 teaposies is available from Amazon.Com at the link below.
If you have never tried a tea posy you are in for a treat. One must is to use a clear tea pot. For our daughter, we picked up a glass whistle teapot from a thrift store for $2.50. It works fine. I personally see no reason to pay the higher price for one of the special pots that are advertised with Tea Posy teas.
The unique aspect of these teas are the bloom. Remove the bulb from the package and drop it into your pot of water. As the water begins to boil the bloom will unfold. It's a beautiful presentation that is perfect for a stress filled day. My daughter loved it.
