Would You Drink This Floral Tea?

The Slanted Door Vietnamese restaurant in San Francisco offers a choice of floral or smoky tea. Opt for floral, and you get an elegant wine goblet containing a bouquet of actual flora. I haven't tried it, but I'm so curious. Would you down this earthy drink?

My grandmother made this for me over the weekend. It was a lily/jasmine flavor. So beautiful and interesting!

I don´t know about the rest of China but in the Shanghai area university students carry glass flasks with these tea flowers in, adding hot water along the day. It´s absolutely delicious!

They have this at House of Nanking in Chinatown and it's soooooo good. It doesn't look quite as pretty as that wine goblet, though!

Id totally try it and (Im a big enough person to admit it) Id probably take a bite out of the petals just to see what they taste like. LOLOL

i might try it but i don't think that i would drink the entire thing . i can understand that the flower would increase the scent/aroma of the tea and perhaps the flavor, but I'm not a big fan of 'stuff' in my food/drink

I'll pass. I've seen the teapots with flower blooms and they creep me out!

Yes I would ... I like dropping some dried chrysanthemum (sp) flowers into hot water for chrysanthemum tea. Is the smoky tea like Lapsang flavored?
