Jessis mom got me the exact same tea set that we bought her for her birthday. It is made by numi and comes in an awesome bamboo box, that I am definately going to use for something awesome.
The box has a cute little glass teapot in it, for budding the beautiful tea flowers. The first one I decided to try looks like little pebbles, and is called Jasmine Pearls (a fitting name), a green tea mated with fresh jasmine leaves and blossoms.
It has a very floral taste and fragrance, delicious. These teas are so cool, each bud you can use 3-4 times according to the box, but honestly I stretch mine to 6-7 times.
I love that Jessis mom put thought into my birthday gift, she saw me drooling over hers as she opened it, put 2 and 2 together, and bought me the same thing. When people think about a gift it means so much more, so much more than a gift card to a shop you havn't even heard of.
