Last week I mentioned that my husband gave me some mysterious Sheep Poo Tea balls. I also asked if anyone knew the proper name for this kind of tea.
Apparently it’s a kind of blossoming tea. Green tea leaves and various flower petals, hand woven into a ball, that blossomed into a flower when infused. It was absolutely stunning, beautiful and weird at the same time!
There are various names for it – Buddha’s Eyes / Balls / Tears, Dragon Pearls or Flowers, Bouquet Tea, Artisan Tea, Performance Tea etc.
It tasted lovely. Not harsh or grassy. But light, fragrant, delicate and smooth. Plus, it looks gorgeous. It’s such a beautiful gift idea!
Anyway, thanks so much to the 70+ people who wrote to me with names, suggestions, links and anecdotes! Here are my online favourites :
