Ooh, ohh, we saw those flower teas in Singapore. Can't remember if we ended up buying some for leggi or not though.

Nice photo of daughter's face framed by the pot handle ... very arty one. :)

Yes, I thought that too Ru.

Must be great to visit your daughter.

Never heard of flower tea, but then I rarely drink tea of any kind. Very unBritish of me.

Lovely, aren't they. For the benefit of UK readers, there's a tea shop just north of Covent Garden near Neals Yard that sells the stuff.

Thanks cheryl - though as that involves hopping on a plane for me anyway, I think I'd rather pop back to Singapore to buy some. :D

Jo said...

Ooh yes, I'd rather go to Singapore than Covent Garden any time. You might be able to send for them online though Ru.
