Display or Blooming Tea?

john clark | Dec 18, 2003 08:58 AM

I just read about display or blooming teas, a new one on me. Green tea in little one-pot bunches, bundled to bloom into a decorative shape when hot water is added -- like a slow-motion firework I guess. According to the blurb in my local newspaper it should steep for 20 to 30 minutes, and then you can add more water as you drink, "making more tea from the same pod throughout the day."

I think this might be a great present for someone on my list. Does anyone have more information, or any tips? I am unfamiliar with green tea -- can you really work it all day like that? It takes twenty minutes to steep? Also, any suggestions on a vessel for serving it?
