Tea for you

A flowering tea set makes a beautiful gift--or an ideal treat for yourself.

This carnation blooms in about 5 minutes and looks beautiful for hours. Primula via Amazon

With all the holiday gifting going on, consider taking a little time to treat yourself. This Primula flowering tea set comes with a 40-ounce clear glass tea pot and a canister of flowering teas.

Choose a flower and drop it into the pot. Then boil water in a separate kettle and pour it into the pot. The flower--which is actually tea leaves--blooms in a spectacular burst of color and design. Let it steep for 2-3 minutes as you enjoy the visual display and the enticing aroma. The presentation is spectacular, and the cup of tea is a flavorful bonus after the show.

Each tea flower can be reused 2 or 3 times within a day or so, and you can buy more tea flowers once you go through the entire starter canister.

This set makes a lovely gift, but no one would blame you if you kept it for yourself.
