Tea in a whole new way.

Those of you who know me, know I'm a tea drinker.  I drink a LOT of tea regardless of the weather & haven't been known to say no very often when offered a cup.  My preference is just plain ol black tea with sugar, although I am fond of a herbal one now & then.  The making & drinking of tea for me is a calming, mindful experience.  I love watching the steam rise in floaty tendrils from my mug as I cradle it in my hands.

On a recentish trip to the "big city" (read:  The Gold Coast) I came across these:

Hand rolled "Buddha Balls" in the most devine tea-dedicated shop I've ever seen.  They smelt simply delicious & I was told that as they steep, they unfurl into pretty flowers.  Wow!  This I had to try.

After a lengthy search to find a glass teapot at non-astranomical prices, I finally found (on special - gotta love that!) the perfect vessel in which to enjoy all it's beauty:

It's an all in one mug/teapot.  Just add one ball & boiling water, wait a few minutes and:

Ta-dah!  Oooo ... pretty! 

Then remove the glass insert & you're ready to enjoy.

Mmmm - yum!
