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?

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!

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?
