365:079 Tea Flower

365:079 Tea Flower, originally uploaded by planetmithi.

I'm in London for a few days and tonight went out with my very good friend Ellie. She took me to this dim sum place in Hampsted called "Ping Pong"...

The food was absolutely scrummy and we stuffed ourselves. To end the meal Ellie suggested I try one of their 'flower green teas'. She tried to describe it but I wasn't too sure... still, I'm a green tea lover, so I ordered one.

This Huge glass arrived with what looked like a bundle of dry leaves at the bottom. The waitress then proceeded to pour hot water into the glass and then walk away. So there I sat watching with intent as my tea FLOWERED! Yup! It unbundled, and then this lily (I think) came out ... AMAZING!
