Jasmine Tea Keeps Me Company in the Watches of the Night

My sister surprised me with a gift of a tea pot that is half transparent and very cute (it came with loose tea tied in such a way that it blossoms into a flower when hot water is poured over it). I couldn’t resist trying it out this evening and I enjoyed the delicate jasmine tea in a mug my husband and I picked up at a bed and breakfast in Julian, California.
