Chinese Tea Flowers
Freed from its spray of tea florets, an amaranth peeps pinkly
after five minutes in 800 mls of just boiled water.
As could be expected from this marriage of premium China green and its shy companion, the flavour is as new as a fresh-cut lawn.
This bridal bouquet should be caught in a vessel
of heat-proof glass - and may be seen again
and again by adding 500mls of hot water
Chilled Bridal Basket makes a fresh and
aromatic iced tea.
