This giveaway is now closed. Thanks for stopping by. The winner is Sandra B. Congrats!
My mornings aren’t complete without a nice, hot cup of tea (or two). Tea is one of my favorite drinks. And the added health benefits inherent in many teas compel me to make consumption a regular occurrence.
It’s not too often that I come across a product that fascinates and “wows” me. Whether you’re a tea drinker or not, you will be awed by the beauty of Primula’s Flowering Tea Gift Set. The set includes a Handblown Glass Tea Pot with Loose Tea Infuser and a gift canister of flowering teas. The tea pot itself is handblown borosilicate glass. It has a distinct, classy look. And despite the fact that it seems contrary to put boiling hot water in a glass pot, that is exactly what you’re supposed to do. It’s microwave and dishwasher safe and includes an infuser for loose leaf tea. This is a much more effective way to enjoy loose leaf tea without having to “strain” the tea. However, you’ll want to use this pot for their flowering teas.
Primula offers white, green, and black tea flowers that “bloom” when placed in the pot with hot water. My set came with their Jasmine infused green tea. The tea flower is blended with Jasmine 5 times and then hand sewn to flowers by artisans in China. When the tea flowers are steeped in hot water, they bloom. It’s really a neat phenomenon and makes for an exquisite tea. I let it steep for several minutes after the flower had “bloomed” and it was strong enough to make out the flavors.
The gift set comes with 12 different tea flowers, each which can be steeped up to 3 times for a total of 36 steeps or 250 cups of tea. Primula products are available online and select Macy’s and Bed Bath and Beyond stores.
