If you’ve never encountered Xian Tao flower balls, go get yourself one at the earliest opportunity, even if you don’t like unusual teas.
Colin and I visited a new shopping complex last Saturday and stopped for tea and cake at the delightful Tlicious café (http://www.tlicious.com.au) . After reading the description, I simply had to buy one of the Xian Tao flower balls.
“Constructed by hand, these Xian Tao flower balls are a green tea with jasmine and a pink chrysanthemum centre. Place in a glass teapot or cup for best results. Pour in hot water and watch as a beautiful flower slowly unfolds.”
The tea was wonderful too.
