A friend introduced me to blooming teas. They start as small hand tied balls of tea leaves. When you pour steaming water into the pot, they slowly bloom into this amazing work of art. This is the Strawberry Misaki Blooming Tea from Teavana.
Forget about your classic grandma's teapot, say hello to Sorapot. Take a look at this futuristic teapot designed by Joey Roth, New York based industrial designer. Joey chose alcoa aluminum because of its advantages over other materials.
