My Chinese New Year Discovery
The sign on the bin read "White Lychee." And the man at Kam Man Food Products on 200 Canal said "one per cup only."
However a a search on the net reveals "one per POT."
It's called flowering tea, and is hand-sewn white tea leaves around what I think is an amaranth flower. It's called Lychee because its made to resemble a lychee nut until it opens up when brewed.
Since I don't have a clear pot or mug, I used a wine glass. Why not, right? I use them for everything else.
This flowering tea tastes similar to jasmine tea.
However, like had I opened a beer or bottle of wine, Willamena did not drool over it. But I'm still going back for more tea pods.
