Tea time

Normally I purchase loose leaf teas from Adagio - just love their teas and the Ingenuitea, but the other day I purchased this tea set from Costco with flowering tea.
These are really beautiful to look at while enjoying your cup of tea.

So you start out with one of the hand crafted tea bundles (this one happens to be a Jasmine scented white tea bundle) that you put in a glass teapot.
After you pour boiling water into the teapot, the blossom opens up into this piece of art and releases the tea flavor.

I've never seen those anywhere. It looks like it would be fun to see. Are there any which are just herbal teas?
