Rare Blooms

Simple and sophisticated tea drinkers alike will be delighted with these bud-like packets that "bloom" slowly when steeped. Three captivating varieties- peach green tea, jasmine green tea, and chrysanthemum green tea- are hand-sewn in China to create artful "flowers" that each yield a delicious pot or several cups of tea. Each glass jar contains a sampling of the bud varieties. Tea grown and buds hand sewn by artisans in China; samplers hand assembled by Sierra Zamarripa in Brooklyn, New York.

Ok, the tea is gorgeous and tastes great (but I absolutely love tea so I love most teas) but I did some research and I just wanted to let people who may consider purchasing the product in the future that it is rather expensive for not having the teapot included, but the teapot pictured is most likely the 30 oz. Kikkerland Lotus Teapot. I just wanted to write this so future customers know if they want to find the pot as well. Unfortunately it won't be as inexpensive as expected. Despite that, I hope this helps.

Once again I didn't read the description carefully. I thought the teapot came with the blooming teas. I thought it was pricy for just the tea. It was a gift for someone who loves tea, so I splurged. I had to go elsewhere to purchase a matching teapot. The blooming pods just wouldn't be the same without it. I think my friend is going to love this gift. I would recommend this to a friend as long as they understand they are only getting the blooming tea pods.

I purchased this product as a gift. It was loved by the receiver, who thought it was very aesthetically pleasing. The flower is a fun surprise, and expands slowly for about 20 minutes.

          Was very disappointed that when my order arrived, the teapot pictured was not included. Had to purchase the teapot separately, but the teapot didn't arrive in time for Christmas. I had to give the teapot to my daughter well after Christmas. If you are buying these to watch the tea "flower", be sure to buy a clear teapot as well.

            DOES NOT COME WITH TEAPOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

            By 

            from Seattle, Wa

            Comments about UncommonGoods Blooming Tea:

            Product image is misleading - this tiny vial of small tea buds won't be blooming since it doesn't come with the pictured tea pot. The implications of a website using such unethical selling practices aside...

            The whole point of purchasing these blooming tea pearls is to be able to see them bloom! Hope you already have a tea pot at home that suits your needs. As a gift this was useless.
