Magic Tea




Ok, another NON Hallowe'en post but in my defense, I do try and share 'magical' things with my adoring public.
I saw that eye-rolling and heard that exasperated sigh!
I picked this up the other day in the clearance aisle at, believe it or not, Office Max. It's tea that 'blooms' in the pot into a very pretty flower. No kidding. No, really, it does. Why are you looking at me that way, are you calling me a liar? Want to take this outside? I watch no holds barred caged ultimate fighting you know, I'll go all medieval on you!
*Ahem*
I have seen this online and wondered if it worked, and it does, it's really cool. So if you might want to add a little bit of beauty and magic in your day, try and find some of this.
And as far as the taste, it's white peach tea, and delicious too! You can buy it, as well as a lot of other cool tea accessories by clicking right here!.
The Eastern aesthetic is so cool. Is it still cool to say cool?

**UPDATE**

I have totally redeemed myself, they have a pumpkin scented tea that, get this, blooms into a little pumpkin in the brewing pot! I am SOOOOOOO going to get this for Hallowe'en!

Is that not fantastic since it probably isn't hip to say cool, totally, soooooo and probably 89% of the other adjectives that I use to express approval of something.

Oh my! That's just lovely. Pumpkin flower tea.

If you should get it, tell me how you like it?

That is amazing! . . . but does it taste good?

I don't know about the pumpkin scented tea but the peach tea was very very good. It was very delicate tasting, being a white tea and the peach taste was definately there without being understated or overpowering.

Ran back yesterday and bought the rest of the 3 boxes that they had. I am tempted to go ahead and buy a box of pumpkin tea just for the principle of it.

Oh my, thank you for your very kind words! When I started blogging, I was wondering how long I would be able to keep the Hallowe'en theme going but it has kind of evolved into Better Haunts and Gardens, or GoodHauntkeeping, something that brings magic and Hallowe'en to everyday life.

And Mr. Murtz dropped by the other night and had a smoke of his pipe in the bedroom. No kidding. I guess he was just in the neighborhood and decided to drop by.
