miss_pretty_pants says:

Gah, never thought to google it. Wonder if they have them at the Bodum shops or Whittakers..

They look a bit alien once expanded, like something out of a hospital/canopic preservation jar. ICk.

I got these from eBay, £2.50 for four. They're probably not the best quality (I've certainly drunk better green tea), but this is more of a show tea than a drinking tea.

that would make such an utterly great present for someone. Good enough to stock up on even.

I love the idea of a 'show' tea : )
Reminds me a bit of some things we had at Christmas; Hibiscus flowers in syrup, you put one in the base of a flute and topped up with Champagne, like a very posh Kir Royale, really delicate pink with a perfect alien flower suspended by the bubbles

Cool. I bought loads of these back to England for Christmas. There are some great little Chinese tea shops here that sell that kind of stuff; great for gifts! If there are any rare teas you're after, I can probably see if I can get them here on the cheap for you.

Well I met these last week in PING PONG restaurant in lonond and they wanted a quid each for a large ball. I thought that was rediculous then in a tea shop in soho they wanted 2.50 each and I laughed heartidly and walked out.

My point is is that site the large balls or the small ones? and is that really a cheap as they come?

I had this tea at burke williams spa and it was the best tasting tea i have ever had. DELICIOUS!!! and the flower is really pretty. It is a part of thier new harmony treatment. you start off in the jacuzzi with your cup of blossoming tea

I sell these at my cafe! I get them from Primula, which is also online[though the site address escapes me]. The jasmine is my favourite!
